Book: Knowledge Management and E-Learning

Digital media engagement and future trends revealed

Published: Tuesday, November 9, 2010 - 05:00

(CRC Press: Boca Raton, FL) -- The growing demand for online courses and supporting technology has resulted in structural and functional challenges for universities and colleges. These changes have led many distance-education providers to recognize the value of understanding the fundamental concepts of both e-learning and knowledge management, including the e-learning economic model and how to change the current culture of delivery system providers. Answering that need, Knowledge Management and E-Learning (CRC Press, 2010) examines knowledge management practices, techniques, and methodologies in e-learning. These chapters explain how knowledge capture, retention, transfer, and sharing can help enhance the e-learning experience.

Edited by Jay Liebowitz, Ph.D., and Michael S. Frank, Ph.D., and written by leading authorities in the fields of knowledge management and e-learning, the book contains international case studies that illustrate the applications of knowledge management to e-learning in businesses, government agencies, and universities in the United States, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Europe, and Asia. The text is divided into four parts: setting the stage, methodologies and techniques, case studies and applications, and industry perspectives.


• Provides in-depth coverage of how e-learning benefits from knowledge capture, retention, transfer, and sharing
• Includes case studies that examine the applications of knowledge management to e-learning in businesses, government agencies, and universities in the United States, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, and Europe
• Discusses how digital media engagement and social media can enhance the e-learning experience
• Includes a summary of current and future trends by experts from academia, government, and industry
