The use of Knowledge Management (KM) is increasingly relevant to education for the management of information and knowledge resources. It is important that educational organisations adapt to mobile learning using existing established frameworks for evaluation. In particular, strategies for KM within the university context need to be understood. This article examines the industrial Socialisation Externalisation Combination and Internalisation (SECI) model of KM and how it is applied to the educational domain. The purpose of this investigation is to analyse the KM supported by different technologies within a SECI framework, in the Software Engineering (SE) programme within a university, and how this may support learning. Results indicated that the SECI model was an incomplete representation of KM in this context. An increased understanding of the technology that supports each aspect of the model would contribute to KM and thus constructive aspects of learning at universities as they move to mobile modes of learning.
