  • A comprehensive overview of the ICT sector in Kosovo: Challenges & Recommendations   Order a copy of this article
    by Dillon Berjani, Flamur Breznica 
    Abstract: The ICT sector in Kosovo has experienced augmented growth over the past 10 years that has embedded the sector into political and academic agendas. This growth gave the sector the epithet of the designated motor for potential economic growth & innovation. However, although the sector seemingly experienced growth in the last few years, the magnitude of this growth has barely been researched. This has often led to impromptu measures attempting to assist the sector, be that on political, institutional or business level. This paper aims to examine the ICT sector in Kosovo and offer a comprehensive overview of the sector, followed by an overview of the challenges for the sector, accompanied by apt recommendations on how to address them. The study will make use of primary data collected through surveys and questionnaires and secondary data from key institutions who have studied the sector previously. The key objective is to offer recommendations to political actors, businesses and other key institutions on how to accelerate sustainable and organic sector growth. rn

  • Shaping academic success: analysing the impact of e-learning, quality education, learning and study strategies on the academic achievements of BEd students in India   Order a copy of this article
    by Priyanka Singh, Sonia Sharma 
    Abstract: The sustainable development goals (SDGs) are a global commitment to sustainability, with a specific emphasis on SDG 4, which centres on quality education. However, achieving SDG 4 in India is hampered by challenges such as poor education quality, underused e-learning and ICT resources, ineffective learning strategies, low participation rates, socio-economic disparities, and infrastructure deficiencies. This study examines how e-learning, education quality, and learning strategies affect the academic performance of B.Ed. Students in Bihar, India. This was conducted in Bihar because it secured the lowest rank in the latest governmental SDG4 report. Using surveys, correlations, and multiple regression models, the research finds a strong positive correlation (about 80%) between the considered variables and the students’ academic achievement, with quality education being the most influential. Furthermore, the multivariate regression model explains 72% of the variance in the students’ academic achievement. The study aims to contribute effectively to attaining SDG4, particularly in Bihar, India.

  • An empirical study on the effects of brand equity on millennials’ consumption behaviour on online food aggregators: evidence from the tri-city area of Chandigarh, Mohali, and Panchkula   Order a copy of this article
    by Komal Bhardwaj, Arshan Bhullar, Navalpreet Kaur, Garima . 
    Abstract: In contemporary times, millennials constitute a substantial segment of the consumer market whose demand for internet-based domestic delivery of meals is increasing. Consequently, it is critical to examine the impact of brand equity on the online food aggregator consumption patterns of millennials residing in the tri-city region of Chandigarh, Mohali, and Panchkula. Four prominent e-commerce food aggregators were selected through the implementation of purposive sampling: Zomato, Swiggy, Food Panda, and Uber Eats. The data was gathered from 262 respondents using standardised questionnaires, and the data were analysed utilising structural equation modelling (SEM). The empirical findings indicate that there is a statistically significant and positive correlation between consumer behaviour and three brand equity characteristics - perceived quality, brand loyalty, and brand association. This finding suggests that while millennials may be aware of certain brands in the online food aggregator industry, it does not necessarily impact their actual consumption behaviour.
    Keywords: online food aggregators; millennials’ consumption behaviour; brand equity.
