Using eLearning technology today in education is changing the way in which knowledge is introduced, stored and distributed, accordingly; knowledge management technologies is used to rapidly capture, organize and deliver large amounts of new knowledge. BA as a shared context in eLearning environment requires students to share, construct and utilize knowledge through knowledge creation processes as proposed in Nonaka's model of knowledge creation (SECI). This research aims to introduce and prove that eLearning environments supports the knowledge processes and creates conditions which are consistent with Nonaka's model of knowledge creation (SECI) and the concept of BA as a shared context for knowledge creation processes and activities, a research model was built and hypotheses were formed to reflect it, then a survey was distributed between the students of Syrian Virtual University (SVU) to collect the primary data to discover the strength of relationships between the model variables, The results demonstrates that BA as a shared context affects positively knowledge creation model (SECI) in the mediation of eLearning environment. This research is a consolidated contribution to field of eLearning by engaging knowledge management concepts in the whole process of it.
