In view of this, this study set to evaluate the use of e-learning facilities as well as information and communication technology (ICT) on the management of Distance Learning Institute, University of Lagos.A descriptive survey research method was used for the study. Using a multi-stage sampling procedure, 240 students in the programme were seleted from four existing departments in the institution. For the purpose of this study 20 lecturers and 10 administrators were also included.Data were gathered through a researcher's constructed questionnaire titled “Use ofE-learning Facilities and (ICT) on the Management of DistanceLearning Questionnaire”.

Description: This impact of ICT on education has resulted in technological usage in education. Desktop computers are used in E-Learning while portable enabled-Wi-Fi devices such as Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), Mobile Phones and Smartphones are used in M-Learning which allow learning/education to take place anywhere and anytime provided there is wireless network coverage in that particular area . Face-to-Face (F2F) education usually occurs in a classroom in which a teacher/tutor/instructor/lecturer imparts educational knowledge to students in an interactive manner. The location is solely the lecture hall or classroom and almost all activities pertaining to learning is done in the classroom. In Nigeria and other developing countries, population increase and mismatch of available educational infrastructure and resources has made tertiary institutions adopt and implement other educational modes such as distance learning and e-learning to act as a supplement for the large number of people who qualify for an educational opportunity but cannot gain access to tertiary education. In recent times, some Universities in Nigeria have adopted a Distance Learning strategy by locating lecture halls and classrooms at different locations and sites that are away from their main campuses through various business models.
