Africa is on the lower side of the widening digital divide. International organizations and governments have of recent concerted efforts to bridge the digital gap due to the difficulties of transaction at political, economic and social levels between countries with high ITC accessibility and those with limited connectivity, and the enormous benefits ICT. The Nigerian government and its regulatory agencies in the ICT sector have taken positive measures to enhance the spread and utilization of ICTs in the country. This paper analyses the impact of the measures with reference to the discipline of language and literary studies because of the wide spread notion that ICT, which by origin, falls within the domain of science and technology has relatively limited utilitarian value to the liberal sector of the school system. Using the analytical and functional methods, it was observed that ICT has been enthusiastically embraced and utilized by liberal scholars in Nigeria because of the added advantage it has given to academic discourse, knowledge generation and circulation among scholars.
