THE IMPACT OF APPLICATION OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY (ICT) IN THE ADMINISTRATION OF POLYTECHNICS


THE IMPACT OF APPLICATION OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY (ICT) IN THE ADMINISTRATION OF POLYTECHNICS IN OGUN STATE, NIGERIA

                                                          ABSTRACT:          

The study was on the Impact of Application of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the administration of Polytechnic in Ogun State, Nigeria. The study population comprised 5 polytechnics in Ogun State, Nigeria. These polytechnic were one Federal Polytechnic, one State owned Polytechnic, one Private owned Polytechnic and two ICT Polytechnics. Sixty subjects were randomly selected from the population. However, related literatures were reviewed from textbooks, journals and past researches. The research instruments were questionnaire which was statically analyzed with contingency tables while the hypotheses were both tested at 0.05 level of significance using the mean statistic. It was discovered that there is a significant relationship between Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and the administration of polytechnic. Therefore, the finding revealed that the proprietors of polytechnics (Federal Government, State Government and private individuals) should procure more ICT facilities and equipment to enhance efficiency and effectiveness in polytechnic administration of polytechnic.  This study suggested that administrators of polytechnics should place greater emphasis on ICT in their respective institutions to foster capacity building of human resources, material resources and financial resources.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1    INTRODUCTION

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is technology that supports activities involving the creation, storage manipulation and communication of information, together with the related methods, management and application.

In other words, ICT enables us to record, store, process, and retriever and transmit information. It encompasses modern technology technologies such as computer, telecommunication, facsimile and micro-electronics. Older technologies such as document filling systems, mechanical accenting machines, printing and care drawings are also included in the term information technology. Information and communication technology in today’s world refers to those technologies that determine the efficiency and effectiveness with which we communication and the devices that allow us to handle information.

Information and communication Technology (ICT) has becomes a key tool in acquiring, processing and disengaging knowledge.

It has becomes an imperative tool for investing developing of a nation in the 21st century the revolutionary impact of ICT on all sphere of the society has not spared the educational sector.

Education is a pre- requisite of today knowledge-based economy the production and use of new knowledge required a more educated population, ICT is playing a major role the acquisition and diffusion of knowledge which are fundamental aspects of the education process. It is offerings increasing possibilities absent teaching and for invocation in teaching activities through being able  to deliver learning cognitive activities any where at anytime. The availability of the internet has giving rise to an electronics approach to the educational system called e-leering

Tertiary educational institutions have always being at the fore front of new scientific discoveries and innovation brought about by the activities of teaching learning and research.  E-learning is becoming increase singly primmest in tertiary education, e-learning is being delivered  on the platforms of ICT infrastructure promise to widen access to education and at reduced cost, Apart from electronics learning ICT infrastructure are being widely use to support teaching, learning, administration and research activities in tertiary instillation, such infrastructure  include personal computers, specialized software, handheld devices, interactive volute board, intranet and visual literary.

1.2    RATIONALE / THEORETICAL FRAME WORK

The internet is now widely used as a medium of communications arrange administration researchers and student in higher institutions. There are many desirable attributes of information communication of information and technology (ICT). Each of them concerns the effective prevision of information to the recipient. These include purpose accuracy factorial, volume of information volume of detail and presentation of information

The term Administration is regarded as the process of utilizing human and imperial resources in accomplishing designating objectives; this could be done by organization, direction co-coordinating and evaluating programmer in a bid to actives goals or objectives. In a such social process, there is always a structure inerrably comprising the subordinates and super ordinals

As such, the primary function of management is to take decisions facture leaching to the achievement of organizational objectives. The types of decisions management malies will determine it information needs, however the numerous crises in they are higher instatement could have been prevents if information and communication Technology will promote issues on student admission student records and transcript examination records and transcript, examination records, teaching, research and community services it has also been observed that the monitoring and evaluation of staff, physical plant planning curriculum development, financial management and information dissemination will increase the efficiency of the polytechnic administration, if information and communication Technology facilities are adequately and properly initialized.

1.3     STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM            

The basic problem of this study is to examine the relational between information (ICT) and administration of polytechnics

i.    ICT can be applied directly to provide solution to specific administration problems

ii.    ICT enhances qualitative and quantitative decision-molding and information management

iii.    ICT encourages skill acquisition and competency of administrating

iv.    ICT guarantees effective administrative practices in record keeping, information management, personal administrant and resource allocation.

v.    ICT here capacity to hurdle quality of date, process them, solve them, process them, store them and release them when needed even at the fastest speed.           

1.4    PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
