Melbourne, VIC (PRWEB) August 31, 2009
gStepOne.com have released a series of free Knowledge and Process Management tutorials designed to dovetail into Higher Education and University IT degree and diploma courses. The tutorials step students through a real-world scenario to convert unstructured knowledge and process data into interactive Google wizards.
Monash University's Faculty of Information Technology is the first to incorporate gStepOne and the tutorials into its undergraduate and postgraduate Information Management and Knowledge Management programs.
The Faculty's Associate Dean Research Training, Dr Frada Burstein said "We were very pleased to introduce gStepOne in teaching Information and Knowledge Management last year. We found that teaching the students how to map processes and create wizards for gStepOne provides our students with a real-world understanding of the nuts and bolts of Knowledge Management technology and its value to an organization.
Students analyze knowledge and process data during the tutorials and use gStepOne to draw maps of the tasks they identify by dragging and dropping step shapes onto a page. gStepOne Googles the web for supporting "How to" information, training, pictures, videos, maps, blogs, etc. for each step and generates the wizard.
The wizard is then available to guide and support others when they need to do the task.
"gStepOne and these tutorials underpin the practical cutting edge nature of our programs," Dr Burstein said.
gstepOne is designed for people who need or want to share their expertise, in business, in clubs or community organizations. They can create wizards to help deliver a service, sell a house, hire staff, conduct an event, take out insurance, apply for a grant - any task where people need to do things like the expert, without the expert being there.
In addition to the free version of gStepOne, professional and enterprise versions are also available.
gStepOne.com is a division of Wordware Pty Ltd, a leading knowledge management consultancy, founded in 1986. Wordware offers Knowledge Management services, both as consultants and as providers of online KM technology.
