The primary objective is to verify that the blogs, wiki’s and forums are a knowledge transfer channel and also whether they provide the right conditions for the knowledge transfer itself. The main aim is to determine which of these three tools methods used for e-learning are suitable and for which type of knowledge sharing / transfer / collaboration. This will be achieved with the analysis of data collected from questionnaires distributed to students with relevant experience. The primary data from this research will be compared to previously done similar researches in order to identify possible trends. Абстракт(Abstract in Macedonian Language): Овој труд пробува да ги истражи можните бенефити од користење на блогови, вики-ја и форуми во високото образование.Примарната цел е да се види дали блоговите, вики-јате и форумите се канал за трансфер на знаење и дали поставуваат правилни услови за преносот на знаењето и го овозможуваат истото.Проектот е насочен да открие кој од овие три технологии за е-учење одговараат за специфична форма на пренос на знаење, колаборација, супервизија, работење во група итн.Исктражувањето ќе се изведе со помош на прашалник,и резултатите од истиот ќе бидат споредени со предходно направени слични истражувања со цел да се идентификува можен тренд.Keywords: education, web technology, knowledge transfer, blog, forum, wiki’s1.Introduction Education can be defined as a knowledge learning process, or knowledge exchange, knowledge that the lecturers shape with their students.

Many methods were tried in the last two centuries in order to have more effective classes, from interactive teachings, more practical assignments, and even classes held out of the classroom.

Howard Gardner identified individual talents in his Multiple Intelligences theories. All of these new methods and
