Abstract

In the corporate world, with its global, competitive environment, many firms have become learning organizations in order to survive and thrive. Similarly, 21st century universities that succeed will be lean, flexible, and nimble, enabling them to cross geographic and time boundaries, and to better meet the needs of future generations. The convergence of disciplines, along with the large number of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary efforts both scholarly and curricular, is one of the major motivations for seeking to build a learning organization in academia. The new media, with its reliance on instantaneous and rapid interconnected and collaborative communication, can in a cost effective manner direct the transformation of an organization into a true learning organization.
