The study assessed the impact of ICT on quality education delivery in tertiary institutions in Nigeria using Federal College of Education, Asaba as case Study. Four research questions and two hypotheses were adopted for the study. The study adopted a survey research design. The target population of the study was 379 respondents (lecturers) in the College. Taro Yamene’s formula was used to derive 195 respondents that served as sample of the study. One hundred and twenty 120 copies of the instrument (representing 62%) were retrieved and used for the study. Data were collected from respondents using structured questionnaire and analyzed using frequencies, percentages, mean and standard deviation. Pearson product moment correlation was used to test the hypotheses. The result revealed that most ICT equipment required for teaching and learning in the College were not available in the school. ICT equipment available in the College was rarely utilized by lecturers. However, few ICT equipment available in the College reasonably enhanced quality educational process. Problems confronting the ICT usage in the school were insufficient ICT facilities and unsophisticated accessories, lecturers’ lack of ICT knowledge/skills, poor attitude of management towards ICT attitudes, not enough simultaneous access to ICT facility, and not enough supervision staff and lack of technical assistance. The study recommended among others that ICT facilities should be made adequately available by administration of higher institutions such that lecturers can utilize them in their offices and classroom. This is necessary because ICTs are regarded as integral parts of teaching and research in universities. Training programme should be organized by school management for lecturers in the College who are not competent in operating ICT equipment. This training will enhance the use of ICT in teaching and learning process.
