One of the biggest challenges to knowledge management systems (KMS) is the great importance that many organizations have given to obtaining information rather than to its retrieval. As a result, users face the problem of having large quantities of information and many difficulties retrieving the information they really need. Through an e-learning repository we can find a myriad of content from academic research and contributions, but how to guarantee and manage their content’s quality?
