Awareness, access and usage of information and communication technologies between female researchers and extensionists

Adebayo, E.L.; Adesope, O.M.

Abstract:
Information and communications technology (ICT) has become a very important feature in the Nigerian agricultural sector in contemporary times. Even though it is still a new concept, an increasing number of professionals are appreciating its use for development work. Female researchers and extensionists are important stakeholders in the development of agriculture in Nigeria. They are important because they are required to provide support to the female farmers who ordinarily would be more comfortable with female researchers. It is therefore pertinent that female researchers and extensionists be abreast with modern information and communication technologies so as to discharge their duties more effectively. This study examines awareness, access and utilization of ICT among female researchers and female extensionists. The types of ICT needed by female researchers and female extensionists include; World Wide Web, Electronic Mail, Electronic Spreadsheet, Word Processing, CD-ROM, Use of Projector, Use of computer, Web Design and Chatroom.
