B. Okike

University of Abuja (NIGERIA)
Today, the Internet has made the world a global village in which one can in a blink of an eye reach out to someone in any other part of the world. Some of us from the third world countries have not fully deployed Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in our education system for the purpose of teaching and learning. In cases where ICT facilities are available, high cost of these facilities are always problem. Even though, University of Abuja is located in Nigeria, which of course is a developing country, teaching and learning are often carried out using Internet facilities. This study seeks to find out the role the Internet has played in improving the academic performance of Nigerian students. Questionnaires were administered to collect data from students of University of Abuja, which is the case study. The result of the study shows that the Internet has imparted positively to better academic performance of University of Abuja students.
