SU Bassey, D Okodoko, UD Akpanumoh

Abstract


The growing complexities of university governance and the challenges posed to university managers in Africa makes the application of Hi-Tech
information and ICTs indispensable for quality assurance and goal
attainment. The crucial role that ICTs play in effective management of
university education for sustainable development in Africa was the focus of
the paper. The paper analyzed the variables ICTs in students’ learning, ICTs in teaching and research, ICTs in university administration, and challenges of ICT application in African universities. On the basis of the foregoing analysis, proprietors of public and private universities and their top management were challenged to embrace the ICT revolution, integrate them into all areas of university life and properly fund the timely initiative. The need for this decision is both urgent and demanding.
