Campbell, Omolara A.; Emunemu, Benedict O.
African Higher Education Review, v3 p4-27 Dec 2010
The inability of the public sector to satisfy the growing demand for University education necessitated the entry of the private sector operators into the Nigerian University System, to expand educational access. In as much as higher education is crucial to economic growth, it is thus expedient to consider the place of maintenance of quality assurance in the teaching and learning activities in these private universities. This is in order to generate a relevant theoretical and practical base for adoption by the management of private universities. This paper adopted a case study research design as a source of generation of lessons on the role of new Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) on educational outcomes. Evidences were drawn on the extent to which mobile phone facilitated learning has contributed immensely to improving educational outcomes in Asia.
