Abstract

The Technology Adoption Life Cycle a "a model which grew out of social research begun in the late 1950s about how communities respond to discontinuous innovations", (Moore, 1999 p13) focuses on the adoption of new technologies by individuals identifying them from early adopters or innovators through to laggards or skeptics. Once a technology has been adopted or accepted by an organisation, can this model be used when looking at the uptake of the technology, namely e-learning, by the lecturers in the organisation? If this is the case, what can we, as staff developers, learn from the model to assist in the technology getting wider acceptance within the organisation?
