Abstract

This article discusses various adoption and diffusion frame-works and methodologies to enhance the use of web technol-ogies by teaching staff. It covers a descriptive framework based heavily on work by Rogers (1995) and puts forward the use of adopter-based models for product development. A two-pronged approach is suggested, one making use of the adopter-based models for staff uptake and the other making use of the Rogers innovation-decision process. In particular, based on surveying and the subsequent development of an example web information system called PlatformWeb, the full integration of an educational institution's administration with its teaching delivery system is recommended.
