Abstract: Many knowledge management activities occur in working places and in our daily activities. On such occasions, mobile devices are tools to connect people with knowledge bases. In the mobile scenarios, the important knowledge management issue is how to quickly find and acquire the right knowledge using handheld mobile devices. More importantly, the acquired knowledge should be delivered in a format easily understood by mobile users under strict time limits. However, many important and specific issues of mobile knowledge management have not been carefully investigated until recently. To better serve people’s increasing knowledge requirements in daily activities, this paper discusses and investigates the issues and opportunities of using mobile devices to facilitate knowledge management.

Knowledge exchange in a virtual team – exploring the relationship between virtual communication and social capital generation 304 – 317
Rashmi H. Assudani    

Abstract: In the current digital knowledge economy, virtual communication is often used as a medium for knowledge exchange. Research has demonstrated that knowledge exchange is a complex social process which, at least in part, relies upon the social capital between exchange partners. The question of research interest is to examine whether virtual communication can generate and support social capital, thus enabling knowledge exchange across space and time boundaries. I use the literatures in the knowledge-based view of the firm, virtual work, and social capital theory to develop some hypotheses that explore the relationship between virtual communication and social capital generation in virtual teams.

Keywords: virtual communication; knowledge exchange; social capital; virtual teams; virtual organisations; knowledge-based view; virtual work.
