Abstract: The world is moving towards digitalization of knowledge which makes E-learning an important issue and prime concern that can be enhanced by combining it with another separate world of knowledge called knowledge management. This research paper introduces the complementary structure of E-learning and knowledge management and their relationship. E-learning is used by education providers only and it is the application of Internet technology in teaching and learning process while knowledge Management is the process of capturing, disseminating, applying and managing organizational knowledge. E-learning value chain focuses on knowledge delivery as knowledge management is aimed at knowledge capturing but they are two complementary processes if they are properly integrated. Knowledge management and E-learning have some basic functions or features in common which indicate the compatibility of the two structures. This research paper proposes a hybrid model which accommodates the services of E-learning and the knowledge management simultaneously. This model can be used by all types of educational providers including consulting firms and other learning organizations. The proposed model has functions of capturing both tacit and explicit knowledge as well as knowledge sharing and delivery mechanisms. As a result, the hybrid model puts the life of components of E-learning and major features of KM together which make this model very useful for both academic and non-academic institutions including business service providers.
