- ItemAdoption and Use of E-learning in Nigerian Higher Institutions for Sustainable SocioEconomic Development(2021) Musa, Aminu Umar; Muhammad, Jamila; Ismail, Murtala AdakawaE-learning has received considerable attention from educators and researchers, but its adoption and use in Nigerian higher education institutions are not encouraging. Several studies have reported a variety of barriers that affect the successful implementation of e-learning, such as nonexisting operational policies, financial constraints, poor internet connectivity, and resistance. This paper undertook an in-depth review of the literature concerning the benefits of e-learning and barriers affecting successful e-learning implementation for sustainable socio-economic development. The paper highlighted that in Nigerian higher education institutions, the lack of a conceptual framework that takes into account factors that could aid in the proper implementation of e-learning has hampered the successful adoption and use of e-learning. The study concluded that recent developments and government awareness of the importance and relevance of ICT in the educational sector in Nigeria have opened opportunities to adopt e-learning to deliver distance education in order to educate the majority of its uneducated or less educated people. The paper recommended that capacity-building activities, active partnerships, and investment in human and infrastructural facilities remain central to harnessing and exploiting e-learning for socioeconomic development in Nigeria

- ItemAfrica Biofortified Sorghum for Nutrition(2014-07-21) WAMBUGU, Florence; OBUKOSIA, Silas; GAFFNEY, James; KAMANGA, Daniel; ABA, DanielThe goal of African Biofortificd Sorghum (ABS) Project is to develop and deploy sorghum with enhanced pro-vitamin A to farmers and end-users in Africa to alleviate vitamin A related micronutrient deficiencies diseases. Sorghum with enhanced pro-vitamin A will first be deployed in the three initial target countries of Nigeria in (English-speuking West Africa), Burkina Faso (French-speaking West Africa) and Kenya in (English-spcaking Mast Africa). To achieve this goal the project technology development team led by DuPonl Pioneer has developed several promising high pro-vitamin A sorghum events. ABS 203 events is so far the most advanced and well characterized lead event with about 10 u,g p-carotene/g tissue which would supply about 40-50% of the daily recommended vitamin A. Through gene expression optimization other events with higher amounts of pro-vitamin A including ABS 214. ABS 235, ABS 239 with 25pg, 30-40 pg, 40-50 u.g of B-carotene per g tissue, respectively, have been developed. Preliminary results of introgression of ABS pro-vitamin A traits into local sorghum varieties in Nigeria and Kenya shows stable introgression of ABS vitamin A into local farmerpreferred sorghums varieties. Ex ante economic analysis shows that ABS has a benefit-cost ratio that is at least 10 and cost per Disability Adjusted Life-Years (DALY) saved of less than US$100, 20 times more cost effective than World Health Organization (WHO) and World Bank average.

- ItemAPPLICATION OF TECHNOLOGIES TO EDUCATION, TRAINING AND RESEARCH IN LIBRARY AND INFORMATION SCIENCE SCHOOLS IN NIGERIA(2015-05-30) MOHAMMED, ZakariThe paper was based on the research conducted on the application of technologies to teaching, learning, and research in the Library and Information Science (LIS) schools in Nigeria. The survey research method was employed. The population of the study was the LIS schools in the country while the respondents were the lecturers, the students (including those who are still working and studying) and the graduates of the programmes irrespective of their places of work and residence. The instrument used for data collection was a web-based self-designed questionnaire patterned along the research questions using the Google Doc. form (Drive.google.com). The online questionnaire was hosted on the Nigerian Library Association (NLA) Online Forum, where every NLA member has the right and privilege to access and utilise the services anytime. Six (6) weeks were given to ensure that all intended respondents participated fully and responded to the questions raised in the questionnaire. It has been discovered that about 20 types of technologies are available and are being used for teaching, learning and research in the LIS Schools in the country. However, while it has also been discovered that even though the stakeholders in the teaching, learning and research endeavours in the LIS schools in Nigeria are aware of the relevance, usefulness and the impacts of technologies on the scheme of education and training generally, this has not been adequately translated and refected on the availability and effective utilisation of the technologies in the LIS schools in the country. The paper concluded that despite the obvious infringing factors inhibiting the adequate availability and effective utilisation of technologies for teaching, learning and research in the LIS schools in Nigeria, concerted efforts have to be made by the primary and secondary stakeholders to change the course of the ship to the right direction through encouraging the relevant authorities' direct interventions; employment of diplomatic and managerial tactical strategies; appeals for assistance from within and outside the country; deliberate provision of training and retraining of the stakeholders in the provision and management of technologies especially through special training schemes; deliberate employment of technologies experts and technicians to domesticate them especially through ondemand education and training for them to fit into the LIS ideals and expectations in education and training; and re-engineering of the internal management structures, mechanisms and strategies in the LIS schools in Nigeria.

- ItemCurrent Status of Sorghum Smuts in NigeriaMARLEY, Paul S.; ABA, Daniel A.Survey of farmers' fields in major sorghum growing areas within the four climatic zones of the Nigerian savanna established changing patterns in the incidence, severity and distribution of sorghum smuts. Covered smut (Sponsorium sorghi) although widely distributed, was found to be highly predominant in the Sudan (24.8%) and northern Guinea (29.5%) savanna. Loose smuts (Sphacehiheco cruenta) and long smuts (Tolxposporium ehrenbergii) were most prevalent in the Sahel savanna (21.8% and 15.5%, respectively). Head smut (Sporisorhtm reliamtm) was absent in the Sahel and Sudan, low in northern Guinea savanna zones, but was most predominant in the southern Guinea savanna. These smuts are economically important and continue to be a major biotic constraint in the effort to sustain high sorghum production levels.

- ItemDesign and Implementation of a Cloud-Based Healthcare Information System(2016) Bashir, MainaSaleh; Nasiru, Sani; Suleiman, Hussaini; Ibrahim, Ahmad TsafeThe healthcare is a critical institution that constantly requires available information at the right time and with high accuracy. Right information at the right time save lives, which is the main rationale behind healthcare services (saving lives). Electronic Health Record systems (EHR) are increasingly being deployed within healthcare institutions to reduce the problems and limitations of the paper-based approach.The deployment of the EHRhas been slow due to high investment and maintenance cost. Cloud Computing is an emerging technology that can be integrated with traditional health management to provide better health services. This work proposes a Cloud-Based Healthcare Information System (CBHIS) for recording, retrieving, archiving and updating of patients’ information and other medical records to have a better management, high speed and increased quality for the medical processes keeping in mind the major issues of security, privacy and confidentiality of the patient information related to cloud computing.The Cloud database acts as the unified data bank for all the collaborating hospitals, the middleware provides a common platform for all the EHR systems between remote hospitals while an authentication server grants access to authorized users and denies unauthorized users access to records or resources on the system.Netbeans 8.1 IDE was used to design the system
- ItemDIGITAL LIBRARY: OPPURTUNITIES AND ISSUES(2021) SULEIMAN, Hussaini,; SAMBO, Suleiman,; KOKAMI, Mohammed ShehuInformation Communication Technology has changed the way Libraries operate today. This has led most of the libraries to move from the old way of providing services to users to the modern method due to Information Communication Technology which gave birth to digital services. The aim of this article was to explore digital library for the effective dissemination of information through digital services. The need to reconfigure the library for an effective digital library was also explored. It highlights the concept of a digital library by studying the basic requirements and equipment needed to restore the library for effective digital services. The article examines some of the opportunities and issues associated with creating a digital library, such as: Better accessibility, faster information retrieval, copyright / license, and power outages, to name a few. It concludes that library, which relies heavily on print resources, should rethink and incorporate digital services to effectively serve its remote users and also figure out how to maintain digital services so that library services are effective. Some recommendations were made which included that digital libraries should try to persuade and obtain a copyright license from publishers / authors. This would help them provide a better service to their users. Digital library should continue to improve users' digital services by ensuring that users can access resources anytime, anywhere, and any day, It will help them change their way of thinking to take advantage of the latest digital technologies / services.
