Nana Owusu Atta Yeboah | Sun Yuan | Liu Xuan "Computer-Based Training and Leaning under the Influence of the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Case of South African Institutions of Higher Learning" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-5 | Issue-6, October 2021, pp.1859-1875, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd47689.pdf

The article investigates computer-based-training during the COVID-19 pandemic in South Africa’s Institutions of Higher Learning, as well as assess the feasibility of Computer Based Learning in the post-COVID era. The data was gathered through the use of desk-top research by looking at how various South African university institutions have made CBT an important learning and teaching tool when it comes to copying with the politics that came about with lockdowns such as the closure of schools as a way to manage the spread of the pandemic. The study reveals that, the emergent appearance of the COVID-19 pandemic in South Africa, saw an increased usage of computers and mobile phones as an alternative learning tool which could eventually replace face to face learning. It is however revealed that, the success of computer based training and learning heavily relies on efficiency and reliability of computer infrastructure, reliable internet connectivity as well as knowledge of computer technology by instructors and learners. The research is however, limited to the confines and experiences of South African educators and learners and concludes by giving recommendations on how these challenges can be solved.
