Coronavirus has disrupted aquaculture activities at all levels. The pandemic has had effect on farmer’s input, output, market, revenue, and contact with Extension officers. To reduce the growing effect of the pandemic, the use of Information Communication Technologies has become necessary as farmers can get easy access to extension agents and monitor farm activities while reducing exposure to the virus. Hence, this research was conducted to determine fish farmer’s willingness to pay for improved Information Communication Technologies in bridging the gap caused by the Coronavirus outbreak. The study used cross-sectional survey with data collected from Ibadan, Nigeria. Simple random sampling technique was used to select a sample size of 40 farmers. Primary data was analysed using StataSE13.0 and the results revealed that; 80% of farmers were affected by Coronavirus and acknowledged that Information Communication Technologies play a role in their activities (55%). The probit regression revealed that the scale of operation, age of farmer, household size, status in the household, and usage of Information Communication Technologiess were found to be statistically significant determinants of farmer’s willingness to pay. These points to the fact that improved Information Communication Technologies are relevant to sustain aquaculture output in the face of Coronavirus. The study recommends that the government, the ministry for aquaculture, and stakeholders in aquaculture should support small-scale in the form of training, credit and provision of support systems to help them acquire and use improved ICTs.

E-learning in mathematics education can be an approach that could provide much better learning environments in the pandemic. The COVID-19 cases have started to increase social anxiety and anxiety in many countries around the world. The current COVID-19 pandemic, which affects all countries, causes problems in economic and social fields, especially in education. The rapid growth of information communication technologies has led to the development and spread of the distance education system. Due to COVID-19, teachers and academics had to learn methods of teaching students using online resources, social media technology, and e-learning activities more effectively. The main purpose of this study is to collect students' views on distance education in mathematics lectures. This study will assist the planning and execution of the distance education carried out in universities during the COVID-19 outbreak. The population of this current study includes college students in a private university. The sample consists of 596 university students.

This chapter assess the level of South African university implementation of The Electronic Communications and Transactions Act 25 of 2002 (ECTA) provision 27. The literature review from other countries was used as form analysis level of adoption of electronic filing. The research found that South African universities adopted information communication technologies; however, most students and academics were unfamiliar with ECTA provision 27 on filing in an electronic environment. Non-compliance with the ECTA is instrumental towards the lack of providing online teaching and learning. The researcher recommends universities to develop an ECTA implementation plan to improve filing on electronic records filing.

It is important for all educators, but especially those working in P-12 systems, to not only be prepared to navigate the digital terrain but to do so while taking a critical stance and encouraging students to critically examine and confront injustice. To that end, this article spotlights the work being done in a literacy methods course for preservice teachers. Consideration is given to efforts to engage preservice teachers in the integration of information communication technologies (ICTs) in ways that develop critical consciousness while promoting social justice and equity.

The covid-19 pandemic has brought about new ways of conducting business through the use of Information Communication Technologies and elections have not been spared either. Internet voting is another form of strengthening democracy through the use of Information Communication Technologies. Africa lags in the implementation of electronic voting, especially Internet voting. This chapter applied a critical socio-technical analysis that analyses factors that influence the applicability of Internet voting within the African context. The researcher applied desktop research which included 30 journals to gather data from the Internet and other documentation sources. The findings reveal that decision-makers can partially implement Internet voting in some of the countries in Africa like Kenya, Libya, Nigeria, Morocco, Mauritius, Tunisia, and Seychelles. To successfully implement Internet voting, the decision-makers in African nations have to fully invest in the Information Communication Technology infrastructure, provide the necessary security, legislation and carry out intensive voter education to build trust among voters.

<p>Research problem: Despite its ubiquitous usage, there has been a lack of research into the New Zealand public sector’s use of Information Communication Technologies (ICT). Email records pose a particular problem, especially when their management is left in the hands of the end user. This poses a risk where the Public Records Act 2005 (PRA) is concerned. The research within this paper explores the retention and disposal of email records within New Zealand tertiary institutions so that the attitudes of information professionals responsible for the retention of email records are captured, as are the perceived risks of managing such records.  Methodology: For the purpose of this study quantitative data was collected to determine the understandings, attitudes, and concerns of information professionals. The unit of analysis was drawn from a population consisting of information professionals within New Zealand tertiary institutions. For the purpose of this research, tertiary institutions that operate as publically funded crown entities were identified. The research was undertaken with a Continuum perspective.  Results: Within tertiary institutions, the issues of email management do not appear to lie with the appraisal policies or retention and disposal schedules. Instead the main risks associated with email records stem from the original creator, or end user, being responsible for identifying what emails are records and managing them appropriately. The implementation of electronic document and records management systems (EDRMS) varied between institutions, but majority of the research participants identified them as being of importance to the capture and management of email records.  Implications: The findings show that there is a lack of empirical evidence into how the end users within tertiary institutions are treating email records. Further study is needed within tertiary institutions as well as the wider public sector regarding the risks posed by the mismanagement of email records. There is also the need for further research into the implementation of EDRMS, and how EDRMS vendors in New Zealand are meeting legislative requirements.</p>

Information-Communication Technologies (ICTs) are currently used in various fields and there are many amazing inventions that are already present and make communication and life easier for us on a daily basis. The use of ICTs is less represented in the social work institutions. Therefore, this paper presents the implementation of ICTs through the chatbot application for the needs of social work created on the Tidio platform and within the webpage of the Public Institution “Center for Social Work Tešanj”. The application facilitates the work of social workers in collecting information from the users and eases the aid received by the users of social care in terms of faster responses to inquiries during emergencies, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, but also after. For the purpose of this research, an end-user survey was created and conducted with the aim of collecting user opinions on the acceptance and motivation for the use of chatbots in social work institutions. The results showed good acceptance and usage motivation of social work chatbot.
