Abstract

This chapter outlines the proposed development of a “Knowledge Base Support Environment” for a university. The system is completely interactive allowing every end user the opportunity to extract from and add to the system. As well as providing a support system for both students and staff alike, the system or environment (see Figure 1) will profile both the academic and technical interests of its end-users. The environment will test student’s problem-solving skills with “real world” simulations and cases providing feedback to both lecturers and students. The environment will grow and change as both staff and students collaborate to add and extract material from the system. Duplication of work by staff will be dramatically reduced, freeing staff to concentrate on other tasks. The environment itself can be used by organizations in training, and in the management and creation of knowledge.
