The purpose of this study was to determine how students in Middle-Level Colleges use the internet, with a special focus on the Nairobi Institute of Business Studies (NIBS). The study was conducted using a descriptive research approach. The student population was determined using a purposive sample strategy, while the stratified sampling approach was utilized to divide the population into distinct subgroups (strata) based on the eight courses that students took. Both open-ended and closed-ended questionnaires were used to collect relevant data. The questionnaire was tested for validity and reliability in a group of randomly selected students. Following data collection, descriptive statistics were used to examine pertinent data. To summarize the data and report the research findings, descriptive statistics such as percentages, frequencies, bar graphs, and pie charts were used. This research focused on the NIBS College, which has approximately 3000 regular students. A total of 138 people were sampled from the population to participate in the study. The majority of students, according to the report, use the internet for entertainment. For communication and pleasure, students utilize social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter at nearly the same rates. The respondents also stated that using the internet has expanded their access to more up-to-date educational information and has had a good impact on their academic efficiency. When compared to traditional materials, respondents found the Internet to be more informative. The respondents also said that the internet saved time and provided reliable information. To access the internet, most students possess and use smartphones (iPhones). They use the internet in their dorms compared to other locations on campus or at home, where internet access was unreliable. The majority of students preferred Google to other Internet services. This demonstrated that students rely extensively on Google to find current and relevant information. The vast majority believed that people do not need to be trained on how to use the internet to find information. The trial-and-error method was the most prevalent strategy for obtaining relevant Internet skills. Others sought advice from their peers or took official training given by several computer colleges to learn how to utilize the internet.

The purpose of the article is to analyse the current state of regional media platforms, identify development problems and justify solutions. Methodology. General scientific methods are used in the research. Among them are generalizations, comparisons, statistical analysis – to analyse views of the scientists on the current state of providing regional media platforms, identify development problems and justify solutions. Results. In the process of analysing the current state of regional media platforms development, an increase in the number of business entities in Ukraine that provide information and telecommunications services (in 2010–2018 from 55,977 to 174,622 units) was revealed. In general, the increase was due to an increase in the number of information services and computer programming, consulting and related activities. Considering the field of publishing, film production, radio broadcasting and television broadcasting, it is necessary to state the fact that during the study period, the number of subjects decreased significantly. This trend is observed due to the reform implemented in these areas. The leaders of the reform process are Kirovohrad region, where 25 out of 28 print media and editorial offices have been reformed, Zhytomyr (24 out of 28), Khmelnytsky (23 out of 27), Mykolaiv (22 out of 26), Poltava (26 out of 31), Ternopil (16 out of 21) regions. Outsiders of the reform process are Kyiv, Lviv, Odesa, Dnipropetrovsk, Ivano-Frankivsk, Transcarpathian regions and the city of Kyiv. In particular, in Kyiv, according to the monitoring data, none of the 4 communal mass media was reformed, and in the Transcarpathian region, 3 out of 31 editions were reformed. The volume of sold products by enterprises of the type of economic activity “information and telecommunications” increased 3.8 times or by 200,727.1 million UAH. A significant increase in sales is observed in all areas, except for magazines and periodicals. This once again confirms our opinion that the majority of the population gets information from the Internet but not from print media. Therefore, the volume of sold products has decreased significantly. The main problems hindering the development of regional media platforms are presented. The main problems include: inadequate provision of the Internet access; low quality of traffic, content (no advertising market, no paid subscription) and fact-checking; the influence of the media founders on editorial policy; the dominance of hidden advertising. Practical meaning. These problems of media platforms will allow to form their development strategy. Prospects for further research. The study will substantiate the prospects for the development of regional media platforms in Ukraine.

Internet access is necessary to ensure respect for the right to education, however, worldwide about 75% of school-age children in rural areas do not have access to the Internet at home, which makes it imperative the need for actions to reduce the digital gap to improve the quality of education in rural communities in Ecuador. This article describes the rehabilitation of an Internet network of 40 schools in the Nabón community, Ecuador. An earlier initiative implemented the Internet network, but lack of maintenance left it non-functional. With the support of the Municipality of Nabón, Motorola Foundation and IEEE SIGHT, a group of volunteers from IEEE Ecuador evaluated the state of the network to identify opportunities using the existing infrastructure. The commitment to the community, as well as the development of capacities, are at the center of the intervention to guarantee the sustainable development of the project. This document reports on the design, implementation, achievements and lessons learned from the rehabilitation of the Internet network.

From personal computers with internet access from a fixed location to today's smartphones with personalized internet access anywhere, behavioral changes resulting from technological advances accumulate daily. With the COVID-19 pandemic and the expansion of the home office, home education, telemedicine, among countless other activities developed remotely because of social distancing, the internet has become a unique space in activities in which it did not play such a role before. Given this emergency and historical scenario, the present work aims to assess the social impact of a resilience solution for computer networks, based on the continuous need for internet connection in present society. The device in question maintains the internet connection, considering that serious failures can occur in the main network, through a prototype that foresees problems in this network and anticipates it, presenting a solution so that the user does not notice connection failures. Considering such a device, it is intended to evaluate its impact on the well-being of the customer who acquires it, according to the connection needs of different groups. Therefore, exploratory research is described since the impact on the clients' well-being was not studied in previous analyses. For the design of this research, it is understood that a survey-type survey is indicated, as it is intended, through questionnaires with Likert-type scales and short open questions, to capture the different needs and reactions in different social groups, chosen according to the need for internet access. This work, however, analyzes a case study in a focus group, in a home office, from the perspective of the importance of a resilience device in computer networks as a promoter of the personal well-being of individuals participating in the research. At the end of this study, we intend to answer the following research question: "Does resilience in computer networks influence the well-being of individuals who use it?"
