Leveraging concept-mapping in a maritime course can lead to knowledge modeling and has the potential to change the traditional ways of teaching and learning with many constructivist components. The resulting knowledge model can maintain an updated knowledge-base system (KBS), which can benefit the learners. In the long run, the KBS can produce a dynamically enriching information repository, which has the potential to support the learners as well as practitioners in the subject domain. The paper relates the experience gained in a case study at the Singapore Maritime Academy (SMA), spanning a period of almost three years, and describes the processes followed for developing this knowledge model. The results so far have been successful in establishing a knowledge model, which is structured with classificatory (object-based) as well as explanatory (event-based) components. The paper further describes the plans for capturing the dynamic procedural knowledge from ships at sea, which is expected to enrich the present knowledge model incrementally.
