Media, in common, can be depicted in basic terms, like a motion picture was great, the book was pitiful, or the Web is instructive, and how did we ever live without it! The availability of online learning platforms has made it possible for MBA and engineering students to access high-quality educational content from anywhere in the world. These platforms provide flexibility, convenience, and affordability for students who might not have been able to pursue higher education otherwise. Analysts, on the other hand, see at media from a hypothetical point of view by bringing social cognitive speculations to media which recommends that people are proactively included in their advancement, and can, in this manner, work out control over their sentiments, contemplations, and activities</p> 2023-05-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 NOLEGEIN- Journal of Information Technology & Management Focus Group Discussions on the Adoption of Information Technology and Innovation in Quantity Surveying Practice and Education in Nigeria 2023-05-10T11:23:50+00:00 Amadi Alolote [email protected] <p>Information Technology (IT) and Innovation have significant implications for modern-day quantity surveying practice and education. Timely paradigmic changes in sync with evolving technology are necessary for quantity surveyors to retain competitive advantage amidst the discernible friction and strive for professional dominance amongst construction industry professionals. However, for such paradigmatic changes to occur, there is a need for quantity surveyors to understand the benefits derivable from the use and value of recent innovations in improving their job performance. This study uses a focus group discussion approach to X-ray the challenges/barriers currently facing Nigerian quantity surveyors at individual, organisational, and institutional levels in adapting to changes in IT and innovations, identify opportunities for further growth and innovative capacity, and proffer recommendations thereon, necessary to bridge the existing gap. Recognizing the need to champion, facilitate and promote IT and innovation in the various spheres in which the Nigerian quantity surveyor operates, the focus group discussions were organised in groups made up of quantity surveyors in Academia, Private Practise, Public Service, and other related industries. The outcome of the focus group discussions was a unanimous call for a paradigm shift in the quantity surveyor’s traditional mode of practice to reflect the changing realities of the 21st century IT and Innovation age, necessary to maintain relevance in today’s competitive market. Quantity surveyors should strive to accommodate new development and innovations, as well as think outside the box. Innovative strides in quantity surveying practice should be targeted at attaining ease of process, promoting transparency, and achieving better value for money. Conscientious efforts should be made at individual, organisational, and institutional levels to be at par with emerging trends in IT and innovation</p> 2023-05-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 NOLEGEIN- Journal of Information Technology & Management Emerging Trends in Science Teaching–Learning Beyond Classroom: Feasibility and Process 2023-05-03T06:59:04+00:00 Rekha Nair [email protected] B. Devadasa Pai [email protected] <p>In the present study, the researcher used the method of survey to focus on the present teaching method followed in the schools of neighbourhood and also reviewed some of the research literature related to science teaching out of the classroom as one of the innovative and effective methods of teaching science which can be practised in secondary school level to enhance quality in science teaching– learning process. And the researcher planned a strategy to follow this method to teach science. Using only traditional method like chalk and talk method, lecture method will not be effective in teaching science. Teaching science beyond the classroom is effective method of teaching to attain the objectives of teaching science. And the researcher found that teaching beyond the classroom following the strategy planned by the researcher is one of the effective methods of teaching science in secondary school to achieve objectives of teaching science.</p> 2023-05-03T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 NOLEGEIN- Journal of Information Technology & Management The Potential Applications and Implications of Decentralized Finance 2023-04-27T05:55:02+00:00 Ajay Ramdavan Sahani [email protected] <p>Decentralized finance (DeFi) has the potential to revolutionize the financial industry by leveraging blockchain technology to create a decentralized, open financial system. The Web3 ecosystem, with its decentralized and open architecture, is the perfect platform for DeFi to thrive. The potential to reduce the cost and increase the efficiency of financial transactions, and the possibility of creating a more inclusive and equitable financial system. However, there are also concerns about the security and regulatory challenges that DeFi on Web3 may face. Overall, the potential of DeFi on Web3 is significant and it is likely to have a major impact on the future of the financial industry. Another potential application of DeFi on Web3 is the ability to reduce the financial cost and increase the efficiency of financial transactions. Traditional financial systems are often bogged down by intermediaries and complex regulations, which can make financial transactions slow and expensive. However, DeFi on Web3 can enable the creation of smart contracts that automate financial transactions and eliminate the need for intermediaries, making them faster and cheaper. DeFi can also have the potential to create a more inclusive and equitable financial system. Financial services in traditional systems are often available only to the wealthy, but DeFi on Web3 has the potential to democratize access to financial services. For example, DeFi can enable the creation of decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) that allow anyone to participate in the governance of a financial organization.</p> 2023-04-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 NOLEGEIN- Journal of Information Technology & Management Review on Computer Network Security 2023-04-24T06:31:41+00:00 SOUMEN CHAKRABORTY [email protected] <p>Computer network security is crucial in protecting computer networks and their associated devices, software, and data from unauthorized access, attacks, and damage. The rapid advancement of technology has greatly improved our productivity, but it has also brought significant security risks, especially in the era of big data. These issues require everyone's attention. This study focuses on recent computer network security issues and proposes preventive measures. It is recommended to hire a professional team to conduct regular security audits, promote security awareness, change passwords regularly, download and install network firewall software, timely disclose security vulnerabilities, and for the government to introduce online privacy regulations.</p> 2023-04-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 NOLEGEIN- Journal of Information Technology & Management
