Application of Ict and Multimedia Resources in Teaching and Learning in Selected Tertiary Institutions in Zaria.

ABSTRACT

Presently, traditional educational approaches have resulted in a mismatch between what is taught to the students and what the industry needs.

As such, many institutions are moving towards ICT and multimedia resources as a solution to producing graduates who are creative, can think critically and analytically, and are able to solve problems.

Clarifying the level of ICT and multimedia teachings for motivating the students to learn a subject, investigating the level of ICT and multimedia teaching effectiveness in classroom teaching.

Moreover, The research also consist some of the ICT medium of teaching and communications such as e-books as the future of scholarly communications, e-reading, participatory learning, distance and online teaching, massive online open courses.

Re-engineering teaching and learning in Nigerian universities using ICT and multimedia systems, ICT and multimedia research in the university systems, potential benefits of ICT and multimedia teaching system, overview of strategic plan of ICT and multimedia in education sector in Nigeria.

Multimedia authoring in  macromedia director, assessment criteria, and some the problems militating against full adoption and utilization of ICT and multimedia resources in teaching and learning in selected tertiary institutions in Zaria.

Furthermore, the research conducted case study approach and survey strategy, the result presented in tabular and figures using simple statistic of frequency and percentage.

INTRODUCTION 

Background to the Study

Conventional institutions of learning have changed far more slowly than the modes of inventive, collaborative, participatory learning offered by the Internet and an array of contemporary mobile technologies.

This slow pace of change makes us think we know what a learning institution is or we think we do. But what happens when, rivalling formal educational systems.

There are also many virtual sites where learning is happening, from young kids customizing Pokémon (and learning to read, code, and use digital editing tools), to college kids contributing to Wikipedia, to adults exchanging information about travel or restaurants or housing via collaborative sites, learning is happening online, all the time (Davidson, and Goldberg, 2009).

The Impact of Information Technology on the Activities of the University has survived other periods of technology-driven social change with its basic structure and roles intact.

But the changes driven by evolving information technology are different, since they affect the very nature of the fundamental activities of the university: creating, preserving, integrating, transmitting, and applying knowledge.

More fundamentally, because information technology changes the relationship between people and knowledge, it is likely to reshape in profound ways the roles and activities of knowledge-based institutions such as the university (Duderstadt, 2001).

Moreover, digital revolution is providing a dizzying array of tools that offer opportunities for learning institutions all over the world to become more vibrant and accessible.
