Using Socio-Technical System Methodology to Analyze Emerging Information Technology Implementation in the Higher Education Settings

Ruifang Hope Adams, Ivan I. Ivanov
Abstract— In this paper, we will explore how such a Socio-Technical System methodology can be used to examine emerging information technology implementation strategies in higher education environment. Educational eco-systems and the socio-technical system approaches depict essentially the correlations of emerging technologies with the processes and functions of the higher education organizations, including how IT supports and enables educational information system and services, such as instructional content design, development, and assessment in a learning environment. The paper provides the authors’ vision and experience in strategizing and utilizing emerging learning technology and services. The radical changes for higher education systems are in rethinking and reengineering the traditional instructor led education and monolith IT resources, and advancing them with analysis on technology enhanced learner-centered educational environment with eco-systematic lens.

Index Terms— Emerging technology, higher education learning system. IT eco-system, socio-technical system.
