This paper presents a proposal of the knowledge management system for managing and refining corporate knowledge. This information system is web-based to allow online immediate access. Corporate knowledge is organized to enable efficient extraction and use in business processes. It can be stored in a form of the course (organized by time sequence) or repository (i.e. collection of resources), depending on the characteristics of the particular knowledge. The system´s proposal will be demonstrated on the principle of several facilitators and many system users (employees). The proposed system can be just the same used for educational purposes, especially in lifelong learning.
