A Knowledge Center Approach to Sharing across Organizations
1:00 to 3:00 p.m. CST, Room E102A, SRP

Tim Wentling and Andrew Wadsworth of the Knowledge and Learning Systems 
Group, NCSA will discuss the Knowledge Center, an effort to meet the 
learning and knowledge needs of students, workers, and scientists at all 
levels. The knowledge center has tightly integrated components that 
include; 1) a knowledge base (dynamic knowledge repository), that provides 
database storage for learning and knowledge objects while it continuously 
crawls the Internet in search of domain-specific information, 2) a 
pedagogically sound e-Learning delivery system tailored for maximum 
flexibility and user-friendliness, 3) a sophisticated collaboration system 
that includes tools ranging from simple text chat to multi-point video with 
application sharing, and 4) a knowledge exchange network to assist users in 
efficiently locating experts and fellow peers in an effort to answer 
important questions. The knowledge center is currently being deployed in a 
variety of settings.
