E-Learning and Knowledge management are crucial for educational institutions and organizations due to the massive amount of knowledge that now exists within and outside those organizations. This paper analyses the current relationship between eLearning, knowledge management and Netgeneration in Saudi Arabia. Due to the lack of research in this area in Saudi Arabia, there is a need to address issues when applying eLearning in Saudi Arabia. A mechanism to include knowledge management practice within eLearning in the Saudi learning and training environment is an important aim and need for this study. Similarly, Net-generation personalization in eLearning in Saudi Arabia is absent since the access to social websites and YouTube by learners or staff is limited. This paper proposes a best practice model for improvement in eLearning and training through technology innovations and knowledge management that should be included in the eLearning processes. © 2013 International Business Information Management Association.
