Knowledge exploitation in the modern era is recognized as a critical phenomenon. Several approaches (Kim & Mauborgne, 1997; Neef, 1999; Carter & Scarbrough, 2001) reveal the potential of knowledge to empower the capacity for effective action. The development of dynamic learning environments requires a systematic justification of methods and processes that promote varied learning (offer a unique value proposition) for every learner. To this end a number of e-learning techniques (Ruttenberg, Spickler, & Lurie, 2000; Bryans & Smith, 2000) appear to present a common approach with uncertain performance (Lytras & Pouloudi, 2001a; Lytras & Pouloudi, 2001b; Lytras & Doukidis, 2000). This challenging situation sets a context that promotes the research in reusability of knowledge resources. A realization of reusability can be based on semantics that enrich general knowledge resources (e.g., an article, a journal paper, a PowerPoint presentation, etc.). The ultimate objective is to expand the customization capabilities of learning environments and knowledge management appears to be a well-justified means for the achievement of such a goal (Lytras & Pouloudi, 2001c; Lytras, Pouloudi, & Poulymenakou, 2002).
