Role of ICT in Managing Higher Education for Sustainable Development

SA Bello, S Johnson


This study assessed the role of ICT in the management of higher education for sustainable education in Nigeria. Data were collected from 800 lecturers selected from 16 higher education institutions in the country. The findings were that accessibility of ICT facilities is still very low and that,
although lecturers have a positive disposition towards the use of ICT  acilities, they scarcely use them. The study also found that the respondents believe in the potential of ICTs to positively transform higher education. It highlighted the ranking of some factors hindering effective usage of ICT in the management of higher education for sustainable development. In light of these findings, it is recommended that ICT facilities are made available and accessible in higher institutions and that relevant end-user training be provided to enhance usage of the facilities.
