Transfer of Knowledge in Cyberspace: Issue of Monitoring, Data Analysis and Evaluation with regard to the Transmissivity of Virtual Worlds and Reality

Autor: Jakub Štogr, Charles University in Prague - Faculty of Philosophy and Arts, Czech Republic



Evaluation of knowledge transfer in cyberspace depends on the possibilities to monitor and analyse data about the objects and the environment in which the transfer occurs or should occur. Cyberspace, by their very digital nature, generates a large amount of data on activities and status of various entities, but now is becoming a problem the interpretation in a form that is understandable and user-friendly.

If sufficient attention to the development of these meta-tool and methods is not paid now, including the level of application and implementation, then there is a risk that in the future - with the development of various 3D environments and social networks - knowledge transfer will be almost impossible to evaluate and monitor.

This situation is even more complicated due to the fact that not all environments permit to obtain such a type of information by users - that access is often limited only to the owner or operator of the virtual world or environment.
