  • 1. CREATING AND CAPTURING LOCAL CONTENT By Roselinie Farirayi Murota
  • 2. Introduction
    • If you want to walk FAST walk alone , but if you want to walk FURTHER , walk with others …..
    • African proverb
  • 3. Knowledge Sharing
    • “ There is no knowledge in existence that has not been born out of preexisting knowledge and that which exists today came from that which existed before” (Carlos , 2005). For this reason, to share knowledge is a condition for its creation.
  • 4. Knowledge sharing
    • Tacit knowledge-cannot be stored nor captured, rather it can only be shared or exchanged through people's interactions. This can take place digitally or face-to-face, but the key element is the interaction. Additionally, this knowledge is intangible, in contrast to knowledge that can be made explicit and become information.
  • 5. Knowledge sharing
    • Tacit knowledge has begun to draw the attention of large productive processes which have tried to develop mechanisms to make tacit knowledge as explicit as possible in order gain ownership of it.
  • 6. Discussion questions
    • What is the rationale of documenting local content?
    • What kind of content are people creating?
    • What is the reward for sharing?
    • How do we validate the local content?
    • What motivates people to capture, document/record content?
    • How should we document?
  • 7. Concluding remarks
    • The production and exchange of knowledge and information has a peculiarity that distinguishes it from material goods. Through the process of sharing, knowledge is not lost, rather it is multiplied and enriched.
