Abstract

Modern information and communication technologies (ICTs) are recognised as having enormous potential for improving quality in higher education delivery and, subsequently, contributing to production of graduates who are suited to the needs of the contemporary labour market. This recognition has formed the basis for investment in the development of ICT capacity in higher education institutions (HEIs) in Nigeria. After years of this investment, this study investigated the reach and utilisation of ICT facilities in HEIs .in the country. The findings were that availability of ICT facilities, notably mobile phones and the internet, is widespread. However, these have not been mainstreamed into teaching and learning processes. This is blamed on gaps in funding and training. Recommendations for the better deployment of ICT as an aid in teaching are made.
