Abstract: The evolution of online learning to a hybrid or blended learning framework offers enhanced learning possibilities for interactivity and engagement (Arbasz & Baker, 2003; Albrecht, 2006; Bonk & Graham, 2006; Bonk, Kim & Zeng, 2006; Bourne & Seaman; Garrison & Vaughn, 2008). New technologies present new challenges (Gaither-Shepherd, 2004; Wolski & Jackson, 1999) and this research provides insight into the pedagogy of synchronous online learning. The purpose of this mixed methods study was to explore how faculty members are using a synchronous conferencing tool in teaching via online learning. The Diffusion of Innovations theory (DoI, Rogers, 2003) was used as the theoretical basis for the development of the online survey, data collection, and analysis. Empirical evidence of the instructors' experience while using the Elluminate Live! synchronous technology is provided. Pedagogical implications of best/worst practices for adopting technologies are presented.
