Knowledge Management (KM) is a process of development, retrieval, storage and improvement of knowledge and information from various sources within an organization. Knowledge storage for future usage is one of the basic motives behind knowledge management. KM has many useful domains and one of those domains can be its usage in creating effective learning environment in universities. Different batch of students pass every year and during this, they need to go through different academic activities. If managed in a proper way, knowledge from one generation of students can be transferred to another generation of students. This can be performed in many ways and one can be by the creation of web based knowledge-base. So this paper proposes to create a knowledge-base that can be used by many generations of students for their academic purposes in universities. A website with functions like posting problems, suggesting solutions, rating, commenting and reviewing on selected subject topics, if developed and used for a long time and by many generation of students, can turn itself into a dynamic knowledge-base, where a user can find relevant information on his/her subject matter.
