Abstract—An institution represents the ultimate knowledge organization. The rapid growth of data and technologies trigger the transformation of data to useful information known as ‘Knowledge’. To leverage knowledge, institutions need a knowledge sharing network that can meet the demands of changing knowledge. The knowledge sharing network is accomplished by sharing and capturing knowledge among faculty members and students. Info-Ca-Sh is a dynamic web content knowledge portal. The architecture serves as an information exchange of knowledge by using various open source tools. The tacit and explicit knowledge of the registered users are made codified and accumulated as knowledge repository. The various documents uploaded on the portal by the registered users are made share and capture. The implementation creates interests among faculty members to share and to capture information by exploring a social network. The result of social network analysis shows the information flow and degree of knowledge sharing in the network.
