Many organizations understand the importance of knowledge sharing among their employees. They are eager to introduce knowledge management paradigm to facilitate the sharing of knowledge in their organizations. However little is known about the determinants of the individual’s knowledge sharing behavior. Taking knowledge management as an approach to e-learning, the purpose of this study is to understand the factors of knowledge sharing behavior through the investigation of individual’s acceptance to an interactive web-based learning system in a training program. This study also examines the interactions in an e-learning platform in order to explore the motivators and inhibitors of the knowledge sharing process involved.
