Knowledge Management Strategies for Distance Education
During the past century, rapid development of an information society and growth in the quantity of accessible information was given considerable momentum with the development of information and communication technologies (ICT), which allow people to interact with each other and to share digital information relatively easily. An example of this is the Internet. For many people the information explosion has led to an overwhelming feeling of information overload. Internet searches for relevant information yield a growing number of results that are unrelated to the searched topic or are only marginally useful, while growing amounts of the information available are of poor quality. If information and knowledge are to be of practical value they must be effectively managed. This is particularly important in education and distance education (DE) where information plays such an important role in teaching and learning. Knowledge Management (KM) is a response to these challenges, mostly seen in the business world and to some extent, in education.
