In resource-based learning scenarios, students are often overwhelmed by the complexity of task-relevant knowledge and information. Techniques for the external interactive representation of individual knowledge in graphical format may help them to cope with complex problem situations. Advanced computer-based concept-mapping tools have the potential to foster spatial learning strategies and processes of individual knowledge management. In addition, they have the potential to represent not only conceptual knowledge, but also content knowledge about a domain, as well as knowledge resources. The paper analyzes the potential of digital concept maps for supporting processes of individual knowledge management in resource-based learning. After a brief review of the structural, representational, processing, and usability features of digital concept maps, results of empirical research related to the following main management processes are considered: knowledge identification/evaluation, information search, knowledge generation, knowledge representation/organization, knowledge communication, and knowledge use.
