Blurb/Shorttext:
This work investigated the important factors influencing faculty members’ decision to use or not to use any form of online course management applications (OCMA) in higher education. Today, with the rapid growth of the Internet, many higher educational institutions are using technology in courses or offering online courses and programs. With training and support, many faculty members use some form of OCMA in their teaching, but some faculty members choose not to. Administrators may benefit from understanding faculty use of general technology in teaching in higher education by exploring how faculty members make their decisions in the use of specific types of technology such as OCMA. Beyond the descriptive statistics, logistic analysis and path analysis led to a consistent statistical- artifact hypothesis: there are factors that correlate faculty members’ technology adoption decisions. In this work, Time or time-related challenges were shown not to be a direct factor. In addition, my work suggested specific ways in which administrators might play an important role in supporting faculty members’ decisions toward online education.
