Nice post at elearnspace.

It deals with the differences but close relationship of e-Learning and Knowledge Management:

“elearning is delayed (but tested), organized knowledge”
“KM is chaotic, current (but structurally weak) knowledge”
“KM should feed into elearning (in order for the content of the “course” to remain fresh and to tap learners into a sustained knowledge environment after the course is done). Elearning should feed into the KM environment and provide easy mechanisms for organizing information”

It’s worth the reading :)
