SKC is a prototype system for knowledge management in the Web by means of semantic information without supervision and tries to select the knowledge contained in the system by paying attention to its use. This paper explains user activity analysis in order to find out their interest for knowledge elements in the system, and the application of this interest for users classification and knowledge identification for their interest, inside and outside SKC. As a result a model for user interest based on interaction is obtained.
