dc.description.abstract During the mid to late 1990s, many Australian universities adopted innovative learning management systems to support online learning in their teaching operations. A recent investigation into the adoption experiences of three selected Australian universities revealed significant diversity in the ways in which this technology was conceived, evaluated and adopted. A fear among Vice Chancellors of falling behind their peers in other respected universities proved to be significant in each university. Although catching up was a powerful catalyst for rapid organisation-wide change, the substantive educational outcomes experienced were somewhat underwhelming, despite an increase in external legitimacy following adoption. This chapter discusses the antecedents, processes, and consequences associated with the adoption of learning management systems in three selected Australian universities. The influence of a range of various internal and external factors on key individuals is identified. This chapter concludes with a number of implications for policy and practice. en_US
