PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to study the determinants of blended learning adoption in universities by focusing on faculty’s satisfaction.Design/methodology/approachThe research methodology is based on a case study of one of the most ancient University in Europe. The authors administered a questionnaire to the professors that used blended technologies, and the authors conducted clinical interviews with some of the key people involved in the implementation process.FindingsThe paper allows to identify the main factors that impact on faculty’s satisfaction. Student-related issues seem to be the most important factors influencing faculty satisfaction, while instructor-related issues and especially institution-related issues definitely seem to be less important.Research limitations/implicationsThe study is focused just on a single case study. Further researches could explore a wider application of this research approach to several universities and different countries.Originality/valueThis study is one of the first that analyzed blended learning adoption in historic universities.
