By Ahlam Sawsaa and Lu Joan


Today, we are living within the age of transformation from an information era to a knowledge era, with rapid development of the tools of technology, such as the internet. Professionals could be communicated with through this medium to share and reuse knowledge, regardless of their widespread locations.
