Abstract Introduction The purpose of this study is to examine the role of information and communication technology ICT in enhancing community outreach, academic and research collaboration, and education and support services IT-CARES in an academic setting.
Methods A survey was deployed to assess the ICT needs in an academic setting. The survey was developed using the Delphi methodology. Questionnaire development was initiated by asking key stakeholders involved in community outreach, academic, research, education, and support to provide feedback on current ICT issues and future recommendations for relevant ICT tools that would be beneficial to them in their job, and to capture current ICT issues.
Participants were asked to rate the level of importance of each ICT question on five-point Likert scales. Results The survey was sent to participants, including faculty, staff, and students.
The total number of respondents was 96, for a 27 percent response rate. The majority of the participants The majority of the participants placed moderate A majority of the participants attributed high importance to learning to interact with the online learning management system Blackboard.
A majority of the participants agreed that social media should being more actively utilized for diverse activities for academic and research purposes.
Conclusion The study helped to identify the current needs and challenges faced by professionals and students when interacting with ICT.
More research is needed in order to effectively integrate the use of ICT in the field of higher education, especially related to the modern global public health context. Background Information and communication technology ICT has contributed immensely to social and economic improvements, such as higher employment and productivity, increasing access to a higher quality of life.
In the context of public health, ICT, if properly designed and implemented, can generate many positive outcomes: In the education and higher learning context, ICT enables healthcare professionals to be updated and trained on knowledge advances wherever are located.
In order to develop successful online programs, however, it is necessary to understand what the specific ICT needs of an institution are. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development OECDinvestments in higher education are essential for economic growth, and the global demand for higher education is predicted to increase vastly from less than million students in to more than million students in Without these tools and technologies, individuals and institutions have poorer chances to address 21st-century issues and challenges.
Therefore, higher education institutes worldwide are redesigning their educational systems, teaching methods and learning practices. To our knowledge, neither studies nor validated frameworks currently exist to establish an integrative approach to ICT needs assessment. The purpose of this study is to examine the role of ICT in enhancing community outreach, academic and research collaboration, and education and support services IT-CARES in an academic setting.
The survey was developed using the Delphi methodology, which is an iterative, multistage process designed to combine opinion into group consensus. Questionnaire development was initiated by asking key stakeholders in community outreach, academic, research, education, and service support settings to provide feedback on current ICT issues and future recommendations for relevant ICT tools that would be beneficial in their jobs, and to capture current ICT issues.
The questions were modified to meet the needs identified by the stakeholders within the college. From their feedback, a structured questionnaire was created to address existing and future directions for resources, intranet, training, hardware, social media, support, and usability, and existing use of technologies.
The initial survey was then sent back to the same key stakeholders to provide feedback and further develop the questionnaire.
After recommendations were made and consensus was reached, the questionnaire was further refined to address relevant ICT questions. Participants were asked to rate the level of importance of each ICT question on the following five-point Likert scale: Participants were also asked to answer descriptive questions about their role in the college and the nature of their work to better gauge their perspective of ICT needs.
The questionnaire consisted of eight sections. These sections were developed on the basis of prior literature 1718 and were modified to meet the study needs. The survey was uploaded to SurveyMonkey, an Internet-based survey provider, and the link was distributed to COPH faculty, staff, and students via e-mail.
Inclusion criteria specified that participants were to be part of the COPH and 19 years of age or older. The survey was sent to a total number of participants, including 70 faculty, 89 staff, and students. An e-mail message was sent to faculty, staff, and students identified from university rosters.
The survey was available online for two weeks. At the beginning of the second week, one reminder to complete the survey was sent to the participants. The participants voluntarily completed the survey and submitted it anonymously. The responses were confidential and were used to determine the needs of ICT in the academic, educational, community outreach, research, and support areas.
The survey was hosted on SurveyMonkey from November 19,to December 3, The data were gathered and analyzed during December Oct 01, · The purpose of this study is to examine the role of information and communication technology (ICT) in enhancing community outreach, academic and research collaboration, and education and support services (IT-CARES) in an academic setting.
