Purpose: The adoption of smart classroom is increasing in higher education around the world. Yet, factors affecting smart classroom adoption have not been sufficiently explored. Based on the innovation diffusion theory and external pressures, the present study developed a model to investigate the main drivers of smart classroom adoption. Design/methodology/approach: SEM-AMOS was used to analyse the data collected from a sample of 1,208 educators. Findings: The findings revealed that innovation diffusion theory and external pressures provide an appropriate model for understanding smart classroom adoption. Practical implications: The findings offer important implications for higher education institutions, IT managers, and are likely to stimulate further research in the area of smart classrooms. Originality/value: To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first study that used innovation diffusion theory external pressures to understanding smart classroom adoption.
