The key to the approach illustrated in this paper is the use of Information Technology to model the dynamics of social contexts (including individual behaviors, group dynamics and cultural factors) to stimulate learning in complex domains such as innovation and change management. Adopting a 'learning by doing' philosophy, experiences conducted over the last(More)
This paper is presenting a generic ontology-based user modeling architecture , (OntobUM), applied in the context of a Knowledge Management System (KMS). Due to their powerful knowledge representation formalism and associated inference mechanisms, ontology-based systems are emerging as a natural choice for the next generation of KMSs operating in(More)
Whilst there is a common agreement on the need to design e-learning systems able to take into account more explicitly the 'context' in which learners operate within organizations in order to achieve higher levels of customization (personalized interaction) and impact, many different perspectives exist related to the characterization of which 'context' has(More)
In this paper, we present an agent-based system designed to support the adoption of knowledge sharing practices within communities. The system is based on a conceptual framework that, by modelling the adoption of knowledge management practices as a change process, identifies the pedagogical strategies best suited to support users through the various stages(More)
This paper addresses the challenge of enhancing social interaction through value-added connections among online community members engaged in knowledge exchange. We report on our exploration of three types of connection dynamics: (1) features enabling network members to visualize and browse through relationship networks, (2) intelligent agents and (3)(More)
