This paper presents Noctua, a tool to assist in Knowledge Acquisition and Collaborative Knowledge Construction processes. Noctua contains an innovation: a virtual catalyst designed to facilitate the task of eliciting and validating knowledge. The virtual catalyst queries collaborators, proposing new knowledge, seeking confirmation to the knowledge already elicited, and showing conflicting opinions. Noctua takes into account collaborators' profiles in order to automatically ask them questions related to each one's field of knowledge or interest.
