Abstract—An institute represents the ultimate knowledge organization. However, many researchers are not aware of the research activities within their own Colleges/institution. This often leads to redundancy in areas of research as well as reduced innovation and productivity since they are not aware of the available expertise and resources that could greatly contribute to their own research endeavors. Knowledge management represents a systematic means of acquiring, sharing, and using knowledge effectively within an Organization. This paper explores web-based systems to connect researchers using knowledge management methodologies via a web-based portal. Thus, an educational Organization knowledge portal was developed to fill a perceived gap in knowledge sharing and accessibility within their own organization. Here, we Share and Capture the individual’s knowledge via web portal for the beneficiary of that institution. So, since switch over are made frequent, this type of Knowledge Portal System helps the students and the faculties in the institution helps to access the other’s knowledge for their improvement in academic. From this, students get necessary information about various departments and departmental Activities, Curriculum, Lecture notes of an experienced staffs, References, Useful URL links, White papers, Discussion forum, Wiki’s and so on. In every higher educational institution such as in Engineering Streams, Teaching Staff members don’t get an effective knowledge share tool to create and share their knowledge base among themselves and with student communities. So, this paper will help to develop a knowledge share tool to improve effective Teaching – Learning Process effectively in an Educational Institution.
