ABSTRACT

The use of technologies in all spheres of life by an individual irrespective of his/her status and settlement type has now become imperative in our societies; as technologies have become the features that support the teaching and learning as well as wide range of activities. Open source Information is a multi-channeled learning aspect (involving use of television, radio, cell-phone, internet, white board, computers e.t.c.) which is known to enrich educational experience and effect changes in information and knwoledge. As resources for information and communication are lacking in many tertiary institutions epsecially in Colleges of Education, Polytechnics and alike, providing and utilizing open sources (ICTs) is quite imperative. Training of academics in the use of ICT for teaching and learning is an essential component of successful information technology understanding across education sector which paves a way to the recent development in Education, Science and Technology.
