Zhao, Jia (2002) Knowledge management support for Web based learning. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
The overlapping area of Knowledge Management (KM) and Web Based Learning (WBL) deserves more attention from researchers. The WWW is becoming more and more popular for disseminating distance learning programs; and KM technologies have been largely utilized in industrial and business corporations in contrast to their application in the educational sector. Current WBL environments, whose major role should be delivering and presenting knowledge, still lack systematic KM support. Motivated by intention to apply KM strategies to the area of WBL, this thesis aims: (1) to perform a systematic analysis and categorization of KM strategies that can be utilized in the field of WBL; (2) to propose a system model for developing a WBL environment with KM support; (3) to explore in depth two KM strategies: namely Subject Knowledge Modeling and Dynamic Course Planning-cum-scheduling . As the practical contribution of this thesis, two prototype systems are developed and tested. One is called Online Course Presentation System and the other is called Online Course Planning System . Both prototypes have been tested by a group of 10 students in a practical environment.
