Main Article Content

Murray E. Jennex



This paper is about the application of knowledge management to supporting education. Knowledge management is about leveraging what an organization knows and improving connectivity between knowledge sources and/or knowledge users. New knowledge manage­ment methods and technologies greatly improve the ability of faculty and students to improve their connectivity, find knowledge, and to visualize knowledge. It is expected that this will lead to improved learning. However, issues such as cost, organizational politics, and learning culture may prevent this from happening.
