Abstract—An institute represents the ultimate knowledge organization. Since switch over are made frequent by the faculties from one organization to another organization, they are not very much aware of the new technologies and the importance of sharing the knowledge among the other faculty members in the institutions. This may lead to redundancy in the areas of research, limited innovation and lack of social networking. To acquire and fill such gap among faculties and to use knowledge sharing effectively within an organization or a region, the knowledge management plays a systematic role.This paper explores the possibility of using a web-based system to connect faculty members and to improve the social networking using knowledge management methodologies through a web-based portal.
