In the last years, knowledge and learning management have made a significant impact on the IT research community. "Open Source for Knowledge and Learning Management: Strategies Beyond Tools" presents learning and knowledge management from a point of view where the basic tools and applications are provided by open source technologies. This book explains an intense orientation to the critical issues of the open source paradigm: open source tools, applications, social networks, and knowledge sharing in open source communities. Open source technologies, tools, and applications are analyzed in the context of knowledge and learning, and this convergence formulates a challenging landscape for the deployment of information technology. Chapters of this book include: (1) Open Source Software Basics (Eirini Kalliamvakou); (2) Of Experts and Apprentices (Christian Reinhardt and Andrea Hemetsberger); (3) Riki (Jorg Rech, Eric Ras, and Bjorn Decker); (4) Human-Centered Design of a Semantically Enabled Knowledge Management System for Agile Software Engineering (Christian Hocht and Jorg Rech); (5) Making Knowledge Management Systems Open (Tom Butler, Joseph Feller, Andrew Pope, and Ciaran Murphy); (6) Evaluating Open Source in Government (Christian Wernberg-Tougaar, Patrice-Emmanuel Schmitz, Kristoffer Herning, and John Gotze); (7) Open Culture for Education and Research Environment (Ernesto Damiani, Paul Mezey, Paolo Pumilia, and Anna Tammaro); (8) European National Educational School Authorities' Actions Regarding Open Content and Open Source Software in Education (Riina Vuorikari and Karl Sarnow); (9) Using Open Source to Building and Accessing Learning Objects and Online Courses (Christos Bouras and Maria Nani); (10) The Development of the Open ACS Community (Neophytos Demetriou); (11) The GALILEI Platform (Pascal Francq); (12) Making Government Policies for Education Possible by Means of Open Source Technology (Marcos Castilho, Marcos Sunye, Daniel Weingaerter, Luis de Bona, Fabiano Silva, Alexandre Direne, and Laura Garcia); and (13) A Social Constructionist Approach to Learning Communities (Marc Forment).
