Supporting divergences in knowledge sharing communities

Abstract : ln this thesis, I develop a theoretical framework which conceptualizes the knowledge sharing activity and considers the occurrence of knowledge divergences. This framework synthesizes the architecture of a Collaborative Knowledge-Sharing system as a groupware application which supports a knowledge sharing process. This framework takes into account the collaboratively and distributed development of a shared knowledge repository, the occurrence and coexistence of a knowledge divergences and the preservation of the autonomy of the participants. ln particular, I show that an monotonie extension of the knowledge repository, differentiated workspaces for preserving individual autonomy, appropriately supports to manage knowledge divergence and suitable awareness services for keeping users aware of the knowledge sharing activity can be framed in a sufficiently operational form which improves the conditions of usability of traditional knowledge-sharing systems.
