The study investigated the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as a tool to
support teaching and learning in the Wisconsin International University College. It specifically
identifies existing facilities and how they are being used and the inherent problems and the
perceptions of lecturers and students on integration of ICT in teaching and learning in the
The survey research methodology was used for the study. The survey size was 205, made up of
150 undergraduate students and 55 lecturers. Questionnaire was the main data collection
instrument complemented with observation.
The findings indicate that both lecturers and students had a positive perception towards ICT
integrated teaching and learning, but only few lecturers applied existing ICT facilities during their
teaching. Online communication between lectures and students was poor, with students and
lectures using only e-mail to communicate online instead of using Learning Management System
such as Blackboard, WebCT or Moodle, which creates online community portal that connects
lecturers and students and provides an avenue for classroom materials or activities to be shared
Lack of constant electricity supply, limited internet bandwidth, system breakdown and
unavailability of ICT integration support staff were some of the main problems encountered in the
use of ICT for teaching and learning. All the lecturers had personal computers, which was not the
same in the case of students even though most of the student do have their own computers. The
study recommended ICT training for lecturers and students, constant supply of electricity,
expansion and improvement of internet bandwidth, provision of Learning Management System
and Virtual Reality supported teaching.
