dc.description.abstract The purpose of this longitudinal case study was to examine the faculty adoption of distance education in a rural community college over a span of ten years in the southwestern United States, beginning in 1999 with the adoption and implementation of an instructional television (ITV) system and ending in 2009 with the adoption and implementation of an online distance education system. The conceptual framework for this study was derived from recent research that addressed the characteristics of the rural community college and how faculty prepares to adapt to the changes brought upon them by the adoption and implementation of distance learning. In addition, two theoretical foundations, stemming from the influential work of Everett Rogers and his theory of the diffusion of innovations (1962), and the Concerns-Based Adoption Model, or CBAM, originally proposed by Hall, Wallace, and Dossett (1973), were reviewed. en_US
