Abstract—The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relation between Personal knowledge management (PKM) and Learning outcome. PKM is an advanced concept to assist students to carry out their individual career goals and academia interests. By employing PKM model of Harold Jarche, we develop a framework to describe the impact of Seek, Sense, Share on Learning outcome; and also the influence of Gender on PKM and Learning outcome. Data was collected from both methods survey (32 students of Databases Management course) and an interview (instructor of this course). The results of this study show that PKM has significant influence on Learning outcome. In addition, while gender has impact on learning outcome but it has no effect on PKM activities. Based on these results of this study, learners have suitable methods to leverage PKM to enhance learning outcome. In addition, instructors also have suitable policy to encourage students employ PKM.
