Abstract: Higher education in Jordan is currently expanding as new universities open and compete for offering the best learning experience. Many universities face accreditation challenges, hence, they attend to recruit lecturers who may not have a solid teaching experience. Experienced lecturers tend to have high turnover rate, which cause knowledge loss. To prevent such loss, this research presents a knowledge repository framework. This framework will serve as a reference and a vessel of knowledge that builds and develops the educational and teaching capacities of professors/lecturers. It can also be seen as part of the electronic learning system, which brings benefits to students and enables them to retrieve any lectures they need. The main question we aim to answer is whether a knowledge memory can be designed and created to contribute in supporting the educational and teaching capacities of university lecturers. In order to answer this question, this research creates an electronic knowledge database to store explicit knowledge taken from lectures (written, audio and visual). These lectures are prepared and circulated or presented by university professors/lecturers throughout all university colleges and departments. This knowledge database resembles a cognitive memory that grows and develops with time.
