There are three knowledge audit methods, includes Knowledge Survey, Knowledge Inventory and Knowledge Mapping. Knowledge audit facilitates identification of the various forms of knowledge that are required by stakeholders of a Knowledge Management System. However, despite its importance, a few KMS developers perform knowledge audit.

The portal is developed specifically for academic staff and students in a faculty or school in university.
