ABSTRACT Information and communication technologies have transformed the way people work and have a growing impact on long life learning. Organizational learning is an increasingly important area of research that concerns the way organizations learn and thus augment their competitive advantage, innovativeness, and effectiveness. Within the project MEMORAe2.0, we are interested by the capitalization of knowledge in the context of an organization and by organizational learning. We developed the E-MEMORAe2.0 environment which is based on the concept of learning organizational memory. In this paper, we present the organizational learning approach; we stress the role of an organizational memory in this approach; and we specify the use of a forum concept in such a context. Then we present the approach MEMORAe and the environment we developed.

    ABSTRACT: We can qualify our society of information society or cognitive society. In such a context, learning became a mechanism of critical assistance not only from the point of view of training but also from the point of view of the new economy for which three keywords are: speed, just in time and relevance. This new economy and the advent of web 2.0 technologies imply new working forms and new learning forms. Within the approach MEMORAe we are interested in these new learning forms. We think that these ones are connected to the knowledge management practices and require web 2.0 applications. Thus learners are organized in communities and have to reach the good resources at the right moment; they must have the possibility to share their resources or knowledge with community members. To that end we developed a learning environment based on concepts of learning organizational memory and distributed semantic forum. In this chapter, we interest of the evolution of the concept of e-learning and define the role of web 2.0 applications in such a context. Then we present the links between knowledge management and e-learning. Finally, we describe the approach MEMORAe, the concept of semantic forum and the environment EMEMORAe2.0 we developed before to conclude and present perspectives toward the use of a social web within our approach.

    ABSTRACT: Knowledge and competences capital of an organization is increasingly crucial. The organization survival depends mainly on its capacity to access new knowledge, to diffuse its competences quickly and to exploit and preserve its expertise fields efficiently and durably. Thus today, organizations are aware of the necessity to become learning organizations and to maximize organizational learning. Within the approach MEMORAe, we are interested in these learning forms. They are connected to the knowledge management practices and in this paper we present why and how we developed a learning environment based on the concept of learning organizational memory. This environment is a web platform using semantic annotations and Web2.0 technologies in order to organize, share and capitalize organizational competences, knowledge and resources.

    ABSTRACT: The growth and development of information and communication technologies implies new working forms and new learning forms. In such a context (1) the learning social process is increased, (2) methods to manage the numerous learning resources at disposal on the web are required. In this paper we present why and how we associated knowledge management methods, Semantic Web and Web 2.0 to develop a collaborative learning environment in the framework of the approach MEMORAe.
