Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to assess the current knowledge sharing processes in tertiary education in Brunei Darussalam and identify the preferred knowledge sharing activities as well as preferred online applications for the purpose. This study also examined the benefits and barriers of using Web 2.0 as a knowledge sharing platform in tertiary education. A descriptive research method is employed, in which quantitative approach was selected to collect data on the use of Web 2.0 tools for knowledge sharing in tertiary education. This study revealed that respondents highly utilize emails and Web 2.0 applications for knowledge sharing, which are normally provided by their host universities as information and knowledge sharing platforms. Web 2.0 applications, especially social networks, are considered good platforms for sharing knowledge. However, there are some concerns in using Web 2.0 applications for knowledge sharing, mainly in term of privacy issues and reliability of information and knowledge shared due to its high risk of collaborators.
