The world has witnessed a radical transformation with the advent of online, networked technologies. The creation, dissemination, and consumption of knowledge are thought to be at the center of the 21st century paradigm. Knowledge is accepted as capital and accordingly knowledge management has emerged as one of the important issues of the knowledge age. In this respect, this research examines a total of 625 studies of Knowledge Management from the perspective of education, teaching and learning and intends to identify patterns in knowledge management research. For this purpose, the research uses Social Network Analysis (SNA) and quantitative content analysis. The network visualization findings have revealed that knowledge management, e-learning, and learning are the central clusters in knowledge management research. Density visualization has suggested that there is a paradigm shift from teaching to learning. Additionally, tacit knowledge appears to be more central than explicit knowledge. The keyword analysis lists the most used keywords, which indicates the value of e-learning practices. Finally, territory analysis suggests that countries with economic growth are those who invest and possess the knowledge research, and thus use knowledge as a currency.
