Abstract

Information technology facilitates knowledge management practices by allowing the dissemination of knowledge and making codified knowledge retrievable. Knowledge sharing is the behavior of disseminating one's acquired knowledge with other learners in a learning environment. Based on activity theory, the authors attempt to investigate the predictors of knowledge sharing in the Web-based learning environment. The purpose of evaluation was not only to help the instructor to know if the distance learners are experiencing difficulties, but also to assist the individual needs of learners. Results approved that tools, rules and division of labor were the important factors to affect learners' knowledge sharing. Moreover, learners' computer skills and learner autonomy were two predictors to affect learners in constructing knowledge by tools, rules and division of labor.
