Adoption is an arrangement by which a child whose biological parents are unable to care for it is "adopted" and given the same legal and social status as though he/she were the biological child of the adoptive parents. In adoption systems, the child can also inherit the parent' s hereditary rank. Thus, in pre-modern Japan, which had a system of true adoption, a child could inherit the parent' s aristocratic title or samurai rank, whereas in England, which only introduced legal adoption in 1926, only a biological child could inherit an aristocratic title. For example, under a system of adoption, if a parent dies intestate, the adopted child stands in exactly the same position regarding inheritance as a biological child.

|Diffusion of innovation theory as a predictor of internet adoption. Analysis of attributes influencing faculty decision Книга по Требованию Abdullah A. |
Therefore, this study applied diffusion of innovations theory to identify the differences in demographic characteristics of Internet adopters and non-adopters among faculty members at Imam University in Saudi Arabia, to examine whether faculty members' perceptions of the Internet affected adoption, to determine if the university administration’s decisions impacted faulty members' decisions to adopt the Internet, identified factors motivating faculty members to adopt the Internet, to identify obstacles influencing faculty members' decisions to use the Internet, and determined whether innovation characteristics as perceived by faculty members predicted Internet adoption. Using Rogers’ diffusion of innovation theory, the influence of eight attributes were examined regarding Internet adoption among Imam University faculty members. In academic environments today, Internet applications have been widely implemented in universities and colleges, with professors now integrating Internet technology into classroom activities. Internet adoption can be considered the late 20th century’s most important event.
