Abstract:
The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly disrupted educational systems worldwide, including Nigeria. In response, tertiary institutions in Nigeria have increasingly adopted Information and Communications Technology (ICT) tools to facilitate teaching and learning processes. This study aims to investigate the effect of using ICT in teaching and learning the English language in Nigerian tertiary institutions during the COVID-19 pandemic era.

The research methodology employed in this study involves a mixed-methods approach, combining qualitative and quantitative data collection methods. The study utilizes surveys, interviews, and classroom observations to gather data from students, teachers, and educational administrators. The participants consist of English language teachers and undergraduate students in tertiary institutions across Nigeria.

The findings indicate that the integration of ICT tools in teaching and learning the English language during the pandemic era has had both positive and negative effects. On the positive side, the use of ICT has facilitated the continuity of education, enabling students to access learning materials remotely and engage in online discussions. The availability of digital resources, such as e-books, online dictionaries, and language learning platforms, has enhanced students’ independent learning and self-paced progress.

Furthermore, ICT tools have provided opportunities for interactive and collaborative learning experiences, enabling students to engage in virtual group projects, peer assessments, and online language practice. These activities have enhanced students’ language skills, including listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

However, several challenges have emerged as well. Limited access to internet connectivity, lack of devices, and inadequate digital literacy skills among students and teachers have hindered the effective implementation of ICT tools. Additionally, the absence of face-to-face interaction and physical classroom environments has affected students’ motivation and engagement levels, leading to potential gaps in their language development.

To address these challenges, the study recommends the provision of equitable access to ICT infrastructure, including internet connectivity and devices, particularly in rural areas. It also emphasizes the need for comprehensive training programs to enhance digital literacy skills among both students and teachers. Additionally, strategies should be implemented to foster student engagement and motivation in virtual learning environments.

In conclusion, the integration of ICT in teaching and learning the English language in Nigerian tertiary institutions during the COVID-19 pandemic era has presented both opportunities and challenges. By addressing the identified challenges and leveraging the benefits of ICT, tertiary institutions can enhance the quality of English language education and ensure the continuity of learning during similar crises in the future
