A way to motivate high ability students in their learning process is by involving them in the co-creation of educational material. In doing so, the knowledge gained from the ensuing interaction between the high ability students, their parents and teachers can be very useful because it not only enhances the co-creation process itself, but also the subsequent activities as they are able to be adjusted to the students’ particular needs and goals. This paper describes two parts of a Knowledge Management System that focuses on utilizing students’ personal interests and encouraging their active participation to make improvements to the co-creation process by sharing the responsibility for their learning materials. To achieve this, we propose and develop a knowledge model that can identify the knowledge used in a co-creation process. Based on this knowledge model, we present a Knowledge Management System design which considers processing, support and general informatic system components.
