The purpose of this research intends to explore the process of adopting the e-learning platform at certain technology school. This research underwent documentation review to understand the courses of the progress as well as segmented key factors evaluated during each phase for adopting the e-learning platform. In addition, this research comprehensively compiled the items for the executable missions at each phase, reviewed the problems encountered and its counteracting measures during the adoption process at that school. This thesis approached from the administrative support perspective, to explore a certain technology academy at Taipei County (abbr. subject school) in regards to the process of adopting its e-learning platform. Research methodologies were documentation analysis, interview and survey query. Subjects of the interviews were the administrative executives, administrative project groups and teachers in this subject school, a total of nine persons. Subjects for survey query were all the full-time teachers. There were 250 survey sheets disseminated with 174 returned. The effective survey totaled at 137 with 69.6% return ratio.
After collections of qualitative interviews and findings from the surveys, this research summarized them into five adoptive phases after exploring the documentation: Policy and laws phase, analysis and planning phase, preparation and establishment phase, implementation and operation phase and performance and assessment phase. And this research intends to explore the execution status and the process journeys for these five phases from the identified five factors: Organization and policy, management team, information environment and technology, courses and teach materials, learning and services.
Lastly, based upon the research findings, this thesis will propose five recommendations. 1. The policy drive and implementation from the school will result with prescription of set of consummate organization charters, implementation planning, projects and timetables. 2. System architecture assessment and functional tests must be cross referenced and verified by both the administration and teaching organization. 3. Cultivate and train the management team with emphasis placed on teaching growth for the teacher. Establish teaching leadership team for teachers. 4. Assist the teaching material productions. Technology team in the campus will provide relevant software and basic operation and education training. 5. With diversified and comprehensive learning service, it expects to rid off the myths and doubts towards technological applications. As for the recommendations for future research, it should include: 1. Expand the scope for the interviewee subjects. Place emphasis in understanding the personal motives and psychological reasons from the teachers who do not want to be a part of this. 2. Extend the scope of research subjects. Our recommendation is that in the future, the scope of research subject should encompass all levels of colleges and universities. This approach is necessary to understand the current status and adoption process for e-learning platform in Taiwan’s universities and colleges. 3. Increase and enhance research tools, observation methodologies. The preferred approach would be an in-depth understanding for the teaching methodologies, flow controls and teaching activities for teachers in applying the e-learning platform. 4.Focused on teacher’s teaching style way, in the future this study can be focused on teacher’s teaching environment and studies effect of students.This thesis expects that these research findings would be adopted as references for school’s future development, enhancement recommendation as well as assistance in someway.
