Abstract

People with different skills and knowledge can contribute in future decisions and best-practices. In order to help us, there are different mechanisms to represent and organize knowledge. In this paper, we present and discuss a computer tool that it has been developed to support the externalization of tacit knowledge through a Storytelling activity. The tool uses conceptual maps to represent knowledge. The group members may synchronous or asynchronously contribute to the development of a story.
