In the last years, knowledge and learning management have made a significant impact on the IT research community. ""Open Source for Knowledge and Learning Management: Strategies Beyond Tools"" presents learning and knowledge management from a point of view where the basic tools and applications are provided by open source technologies. ""Open Source for Knowledge and Learning Management: Strategies Beyond Tools"" explains an intense orientation to the critical issues of the open source paradigm: open source tools, applications, social networks, and knowledge sharing in open source communities. Open source technologies, tools, and applications are analyzed in the context of knowledge and learning, and this convergence formulates a challenging landscape for the deployment of information technology.
