Abstract:
Higher Education Institutions have welcomed Course Management Systems (CMS) along with professors who teach blended courses with the help of this technology. However, while rates of adoption fluctuate among universities, the process of adopting collaboration and communication CMSs features Discussion Board and Messages is slow. Using Rogers diffusion of innovations theory, this research study produced faculty perceptions on two features that, if used correctly and with regularity, may provide the basis to support lifelong learning and student-centered educational approaches. Results indicated Relative Advantage and Trialability were statistically significant predictors of adoption levels for both Discussion Board and Messages according to faculty perceptions. Population of study included faculty adopters of Blackboard at The University of Texas at Brownsville teaching blended courses.
