The Adoption of e-Learning 2.0 in Higher Education by Teachers and Students: An Investigation Using Mixed Methods Approach

Mohd Hafiz Zakaria, Jason Watson, and Sylvia L. Edwards

Abstract—This paper describes an approach to investigate the adoption of Web 2.0 in the classroom using a mixed methods study. By using a combination of qualitative or quantitative data collection and analysis techniques, we attempt to synergize the results and provide a more valid understanding of Web 2.0 adoption for learning by both teachers and students. This approach is expected to yield a better holistic view on the adoption issues associated with the e-learning 2.0 concept in current higher education as opposed to single method studies done previously. This paper also presents some early findings of e-learning 2.0 adoption using this research method.

Index Terms—E-learning 2.0, adoption, teachers, students, higher education, mixed methods.
