Hardaker, Glenn and Smith, D. (2002) e-Learning communities: virtual markets and knowledge creation. European business review, 14 (5). pp. 342-350. ISSN 0955-534X

From this push for non-linear innovation has come a fragmented market of hardware, software, and services branded as, knowledge-management solutions. Virtual knowledge networks provide a dynamic way of working relevant for the emergence of a post-industrial economy. E-learning is seen as a driver of knowledge creation across unstructured virtual communities. The paper considers the role of managed learning environments (MLEs) in the context of information-intensive organisations operating in virtual markets (software, publishing, education, music, consultancy services plus many more), the relationship with knowledge creation across distributed networks, and finally strategies for building knowledge networks through the creation of e-learning communities.
