Knowledge management systems- Most useful forms

Just a short one this time. Just looking for a paragraph or so for each of the 3 questions below. A few weeks ago you did a similarly sized assignment for 9 credits, so that's what I valued this one at as well.

Don't restrict yourself to knowledge management in the context of paid labor. You might think about knowledge management for your school work or in other settings.
