THE IMPACT OF LEARNING CULTURE AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY USE ON KNOWLEDGE-SHARING: A CASE OF KFUPM
Nowadays Knowledge is regarded as a strategic resource in organizations, and thus the leverage of
knowledge is a key managerial issue. Knowledge creation, sharing and dissemination are the main
activities in knowledge management. This study examines the influence the social and technological
factors such as learning culture and IT use, could have on knowledge sharing of King Fahd University of
Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) students. A cross-sectional survey was used as a methodology for
data collection and 137 valid responses were collected from all the three categories of students that
include graduates, undergraduates and preparatory students. The study shows that there is a significant
positive relationship between the student learning culture and IT use on student knowledge sharing. The
study limitations, practical implications, along with directions for further research are discussed.
