Rationale of Study – This research investigated the link between cell phone instruction platforms and the academic achievements of undergraduates in LIS during the Covid-19 pandemic in Delta, and Rivers states, Nigeria.
Methodology – The researchers reviewed relevant empirical literature and equally elicited responses from the respondents to establish the platforms used for cell phone instruction during Covid-19 Pandemic in Delta, and Rivers states, Nigeria.
Findings – The report showed that the clampdown during the Covid-19 pandemic led to the introduction of various cell phone instruction platforms like WhatsApp, Delsu Management Learning Software, and email in Delta and Rivers states in Nigeria as a buffering upshot in the educational field. The employment of various cell phone instruction platforms hurts students' academic achievement. Furthermore, it was found that employing mobile phone instruction platforms presented several difficulties for undergraduates, including poor internet connectivity and high subscription costs. These difficulties also contributed to the low satisfaction level felt by the students.
Implications – The study's findings can be used by university management in Delta, and Rivers states to develop a blueprint for adopting or enforcing cell phone instruction platforms alongside the face-to-face arrangement.
Originality – This study fills a gap in recent research on the effects of the shared repertoire and voluntary action of a community of practice on knowledge sharing.
