Digital knowledge sharing is a common practice around the world. It can be used by Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to maintain education quality. While several studies have been conducted to enable academics to share their knowledge and experiences, there have been few attempts to examine the main motivators of online knowledge sharing in HEI. This research aims to explore the state of the art of knowledge sharing behavior among academics in Higher education to construct a conceptual framework through examining motivators of online knowledge sharing in HEI. To achieve this purpose, a systematic literature review was performed using a variety of journals across several industries, including higher education. A comprehensive literature search did not turn up any articles that explore or test the association between social capital, knowledge sharing, technology, and quality of education improvement in the HEI. Hence, there is a need to conduct further research to improve online knowledge sharing behavior and education quality.
