The accepted concept of massification in most African Universities and in the face of deteriorating educational infrastructure poses enormous challenges to university education. Added to this is the vast and still growing chasm between the content and mode of knowledge dissemination and consumption between higher education institutions in the industrialized and developing countries. That there has been a change in approach to teaching and knowledge acquisition in most African universities is an understatement. However, in most situations the changes appear superficial because they do not help to maximize the use of information technologies in vogue in most advanced countries. The reasons for this sub-optimal utilization of ICT in teaching and knowledge acquisition are not far fetched.
