The objective of this research is to develop a model of knowledge management through learning via weblog of Ramkhamhaeng University students. There are two steps of the research.

Step 1 Background study, consisting of the two processes as follows:
1.1 Study characteristics of the students’ inquisitive mind and the readiness of development of such characteristics through learning via weblog (The Desires of Ramkhamhaeng University Students for the Development of Self-Realization via Weblog: Apicha Dangchamroon, 2013).
1.2 Literature review on related concepts, theories and research.

Step 2 Development of knowledge management model through learning via weblog. This step consists of three processes.
2.1) Integrate and synthesize the information and details collected in Step 1 for the design concept
2.2) Consult 7 experts from 5 universities in a focus group discussion for the formation of elements and processes of knowledge management through learning via weblog
2.3) Based on the information gathered, develop the proto-type model and have it examined by the 7 experts for the elements and processes through the use of IOC (Index of Item Objective Congruence). Then the statistical analysis was carried out including the contents and mean. The instruments used includes questionnaire on the quality of the proto-type model and the statistical analysis.

The following have been found out:
1. The prototype model evaluated by the experts has the mean of > 0.8. This shows the elements and processes can be used to form the model to be studied.

2. The model of knowledge management through learning via weblog consists of 6 elements as follows:1)Technology 2) Knowledge for knowledge management 3) Learning activities 4) The Student 5) The teacher and 6) Assessment on
the characteristics of having an inquisitive mind.

The steps involved in the pattern consist of these 6 phases: 1) Preparation 2) Create motivation 3) Sharing existing knowledge 4) Construct new knowledge 5) Learning through sharing and 6) Synthesis of constructed knowledge should be followed.
