Implementing Socrates Knowledge Management System for Education and Training.
This paper develops a new conception of organizational knowledge management as "knowledge ecology." The Socrates electronic learning environment is described as an example of a knowledge ecosystem for education and training. The Socrates program was developed as a knowledge management system, viewing classrooms as organizations for lifelong learning. Socrates allows even novice Web users to quickly (in a day) create instructional Web sites with integrated knowledge resources and Web training tools. Based on its early experience, several implementation barriers are identified. Future research needs for developing and implementing organizational knowledge ecologies are discussed. (Author/AEF)
