    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (6322 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Knowledge Maps as knowledge-management-tools support individual learning processes by processing relevant knowledge and information and by making it available, searchable and usable. Thus, Knowledge Maps can serve as a learning platform by the active work with, e.g. expert information addressed in direct bilateral exchanges or project-oriented documents. In this case knowledge is not a static supp... View full abstract»
