The oil and gas industry is a knowledge-intensive business. As one of the biggest players in the field, Royal Dutch Shell has traditionally set a strong emphasis on knowledge management and community collaboration to improve its operations. Since 1997, Shell has been utilising a variety of electronic tools to build a global network, triggering multidisciplinary discussions among employees. To promote the firm’s constructivist philosophy, Shell is currently introducing the virtual learning environment (VLE) Moodle to its 120,000-strong workforce. Implementation lead Dr Sebastian Graeb-Konneker will speak at Online Educa Berlin 2008 in great detail about the large-scale project and his blended-learning approach.
