Manjiri Hoshing and Eduriase E.D

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) have become inseparable entities in all aspects of
human life. The use of ICT has fundamentally changed the practices and procedures of nearly all forms
of endeavour within business, governance and civil service. In education, ICT has begun to have a
presence but the impact has not been as extensive as in other fields of endeavour. The moving of the
world to digital media and information has made the role of ICT in education to become more important
and this importance will continue to grow and develop in the 21 st century. Information and
communication technology (ICT) is an indispensable part of the contemporary world. Infact, culture and
society have to be adjusted to meet the challenges of the knowledge age. Undoubtedly ICT has
impacted on the quality and quantity of teaching, learning and research in tertiary educational
institutions in Nigeria. The various constraints to ICT utilisation as a change agent for higher education
must received prominent attention, for the ICT to continue playing its lofty role as a change agent for
Nigerian tertiary institutions.
