Abd Rozan, Mohd Zaidi and Mikami, Yoshiki (2006) The Presence of Beneficial Knowledge in Web Forum: Analysis by Kiplingâ€™s Framework. In: Knowledge Management International Conference & Exhibition (KMICE â€˜06), June 2006, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Words of doubt such as â€œWhat benefit can one get from web forums?â€ or â€œWeb forums are meant just for small-talkâ€ are examples of beliefs that were held by many individuals and researchers for a long time. Based on our observation of a web forum (http://asamboi.org), we found that at least quite a number of topics are dealing with deep knowledge contents. Our analysis of a socalled learning zone that contains 35 forum topics and 789 messages, utilizing Kiplingâ€™s 5W1H framework six â€œservice-menâ€, found that the depth of details were ranked in descending order as â€˜Siapaâ€™ (Who), â€˜Apaâ€™ (What), â€˜Bagaimanaâ€™ (How), â€˜Kenapaâ€™ (Why), â€˜Manaâ€™ (Where) and â€˜Bilaâ€™ (When). We conclude that web forums are a good web-resource for digital age learning styles, especially for youth.
