- The management and the actualization of the contents during e-learning processes is a crucial issue in order to determine how knowledge management can
integrate via web learning processes. In previous papers we have described our work and relative experimentation about the people's emerging skills. Aim of previous work is to demonstrate the potentialities of an approach that considers the contents of the course as the fruit of a participation process and the implicit knowledges emerged from users skills (in the specific case the editors of a communitarian radio). Goal of this paper is to explain how we go on with our research activity in the field of integration of knowledge management in the e-learning processing, describing the methodological and technical processes that help in managing the knowledges gotten during the formative path. We will see which mechanisms can help in realizing the conversion and the combination of the tacit and explicit knowledge using as reference SECI model of Nonaka and Takeuchi and taking as example the e-learning platform ADA.
The paper shows how a digital learning environment, adequately planned, can facilitate, at the inside of practical communities, the conversion of explicit in tacit knowledge (and vice versa) and the combination of both in a dynamic process of knowledge creation and management. From this point of view the contents of a course cannot be static and indeed, they represent just a starting point for the knowledge creation process. The student, as an actor of the education process as well as the teacher, can take part to several levels on the course contents. The contents emerged in a forum - as an example - can become integrating part of a course; inversely, such knowledge can be reused by a student/author in other learning or working environments.
