Pioneering Examples of e-Knowledge

Pervasive Technology Changes How We “Experience” Knowledge

Beyond Existing Concepts of e-Knowledge


   

Knowledge can be understood as interpreted content, available to a member of a community and always shaped by a particular context. Digital representations of content and context become e-knowledge through the dynamics of human engagement with them. The digital elements of e-knowledge can be codified, combined, repurposed, and exchanged. Knowledge is both a thing and a flow, shifting between explicit and implicit states and between different meanings in different contexts. The original concept of knowledge management has evolved to a broader notion of knowledge ecology. e-Knowledge is changing the traditional value chain to a value net. It is also creating opportunities for marketplaces for digitized content, context, and narrative. The e-Knowledge Industry may democratize the provision and use of knowledge, reshape power centers, recalibrate the economics of publishing and enable new roles.

Pioneering examples of e-knowledge are presented in corporations, universities, associations, government, and health care settings.

Mobile, ambient technology is changing the dynamics of how we will live, work, and learn. Such technology environments will revolutionize everything about the “knowledge experience”: place, use of time, nature of interfaces, intensity of engagement, reliance on just-in-time knowledge and agents, ability to multi-task, and the amenity of the knowledge experience. These new experiences will shape behaviors, practices, and social groupings for knowledge sharing.
