International Journal of Knowledge and Learning (IJKL)
IJKL aims at fostering multidisciplinary discussion and research on knowledge-intensive approaches to learning management and learning processes at the individual, organisational and national levels, emphasising knowledge representation issues, social and organisational elements, and architectural and design issues of learning management systems. IJKL targets the emerging new landscape of knowledge intensive organisations, which require an integrated approach to the management of learning and knowledge. The promotion of leading edge research in the converging area of knowledge and learning management is treated with a strategic point of view: the fact that the deployment of technologies requires a multidisciplinary approach in which new models for learning have to be built upon effective knowledge management mechanisms. This general statement outlines the ultimate objective but towards this direction a number of other goals and objectives can be stressed: a) Promotion of the discipline, b) Communication of the differences that electronic evolution brings to learning and knowledge exploitation, c) Communication of lessons learned from both failures and successes of advanced learning applications, d) Craft of strategies for effective learning and knowledge management convergence, e) Contextual studies in sectors: main emphasis will be paid on the following sectors: Health, Government, Education, Business, Entertainment Industry, Tourism, etc, f) Promotion of International Collaborations towards new projects aiming at the development of new tools and at the specification of new services, g) Identification of best practices that could support consultation in many levels, and h) Benchmarking winning practices in the corporate field.
