That research has consistently found that three perceived characteristics of an innovation are important […]
I currently work in e-learning for which I use the OECD definition – “the use of information and communication technologies to support and enhance learning and teaching”. My original discipline as an academic is the information systems discipline. To some extent, I believe this background provides some useful insights that help with the implementation of […]

It seeks to generate a design theory for aiding universities with how they should implement […]

They see that it […]
