Information Communication Technology (ICT) on Implementation of Higher Education

Amos Otieno Wanjara, Paul Okeyo Ogembo


Information Communication and Technology (ICT) has taken center stage in educational delivery globally. However, its implementation remains scanty in Kenya. The purpose of this paper was to establish the impact of ICT in the implementation of Higher Education in Kenya. The specific objectives of the study were to determine the level of ICT integration into the implementation of higher education in Kenya’s Public Universities, the impact of ICT on students’ access to academic programs, and the impact of ICT on Public university students’ academic performance. The study adopted a critical literature review and meta-analyses of the relevant information. The study established that there is a strong positive correlation between ICT use in universities and student performance in academic programs, that ICT enhances students’ access to academic programs across diverse geographic spaces, and that there are varied levels of adoption of ICT in running the universities’ academic programs.
