This paper describes the application of knowledge management principles to the design of a postgraduate IT course website at UNSW. The main goal of the website was to satisfy teaching and learning objectives of the course. A two-by-two matrix comprising explicit and tacit, what and how types of knowledge, was used as the underlying theoretical framework for the web design. Main web features support the finding, storing and sharing of knowledge as well as learning by doing. Together, they deliver important benefits to both educators and students of the course.
