What is it about?

The aim of this work is the study of the determinants of blended learning adoption in universities by focussing on faculty’s satisfaction. The research methodology is based on a case study of one of the most ancient University in Europe. We administered a questionnaire to the professors that used blended technologies, and we conducted clinical interviews with some of the key people involved in the implementation process.

Why is it important?

The paper work allows to identify the main factors that impact on faculty’s satisfaction. Student-related issues seem to be the most important factors influencing faculty satisfaction, while instructor-related issues and especially institution-related issues definitely seem to be less important. This study is one of the first that analysed blended learning adoption in historic universities.


The study is focussed just on a single case study. Further researches could explore a wider application of this research approach to several universities and different countries.
