  • USA Osuji


The study examined the extent of use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for two-way communication in Open and Distance Learning (ODL) in Nigeria. ODL is technologically driven. ICTs have brought improved relationships through varied twoway communication methods. These lead to high degree of interaction and collaboration among the students, teachers and ODL institutions. This study therefore sought to examine the extent to which open and distance learners in Nigeria make use of available technologies for twoway communication and interaction. The research design was descriptive. A total of 270 ODL students from three study centres in Lagos were used for the study. The instrument titled The Use of ICT for Two-way Communication Questionnaire (TUICTTQ) was used for the study. Three research questions were answered using percentages and means. The results show that the availability level of information and communication technology facilities for two-way communication is high.
