Diffusion and Adoption of Educational Information Systems in Rajabhat Universities in Thailand
The purposes of this study were to investigate the factors pertaining to the diffusion and adoption of educational information systems in Rajabhat Universities and to synthesize the equations of diffusion and adoption of the personnel and students. The instrument used in this study was a questionnaire developed by the researcher. The samples were 395 personnel and 660 students from 11 Rajabhat Universities in Thailand. They were selected by a purposive sampling method in the academic year 2012. Data were analyzed by using multiple regression analysis statistics at the significant level of .05. The results showed that the personnel equations of diffusion and adoption were Y'=1.094+0.209x3+0.189x2+0.169x6+0.118x5 and Z'Y'=0.256z3+0.222z2+0.202z6+0.140z5, in which it was in a standardized equation form. The interpretation of these equations indicated that the most influential group of factors was the advantage in the use for management and development of the organizations followed by potentiality of widespread information diffusion, the compatibility to the contexts of teaching and learning development, and the cost effectiveness in the use of systems respectively. The student equations were Y'=0.622+0.298x1 +0.203x2 +0.120x3 +0.111x5 +0.81x4 and Z'Y'=0.318z1+0.245z2+0.129z3+0.124z5+0.93z4, The interpretation of these equations indicated that the most influential group of factors was the potentiality in accuracy and sufficiency of information provision followed by potentiality of widespread information diffusion, the advantage in the use for management and development of the organizations, cost effectiveness in the use of systems, and less complexity in the use of systems for filing and retrieving of information respectively.
