The central role of information communication technology in higher education is well acknowledged today. Modern information communication technology has the potential to foster the communication process and permit its occurrence irrespective of geographical location or time, Anibogu; (2012).

However, access to and use of information communication technology is highly unequal due to factors such as economic disparity, gender, geographical location, social norms and political reasons. Access to and use of information communication technology is not only unequal amongst nation state but amongst social group within nations states as well.

Though the term information and communication technology generally connotes the internet, computers and email, this term actually denotes all forms of technology used in collecting, storing, editing and passing on information in various forms (Jayer and Lokman, 1999). However, the internet is unorganized and web sites appear and disappear, move or mutate on daily basis.

While the internet is difficult to search, it is even more difficult to search it well. Moreover the information found on the internet has both the useful and useless co-existing (New Mexico state university Library, 2002).
