Abstract: This paper describes an innovative Master of Science (MSc) course in Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) taught via blended learning by the Department of Information Systems at Cranfield University. This MSc is aimed primarily at the defence sector, although it has become increasingly attractive to learners across the public and private sectors. We begin by introducing the background and context under which the course was designed. The section on design outlines our syllabus and our learning design. The section on development describes how we applied knowledge management software to support the authoring process. The section on delivery describes our blended modes of teaching at workshops and via the Blackboard Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The paper includes a comprehensive bibliography of course textbooks, which are issued to all learners.
