Amassoma Ditimi, Dauda Ayanda


This paper presents a study conducted to investigate the impact of e-readiness on educational development among undergraduate students of the selected private universities in Nigeria using a comparative analysis. The Universities surveyed includes: JABU, LCU, ACU and OUI. The study employed both descriptive and parametric statistical analysis through the use of cross tabulation, bivariate analysis and chi square respectively to establish the above relationship. It also used Cronbach’s alpha coefficient to test for validity and reliability of the instrument employed. The results revealed that not all the undergraduates had easy access to computer and internet facilities. This is as a result of infrastructural deficiencies prevalence in the universities under consideration and as such depicts a negative impact on educational development among the undergraduates surveyed and Nigerian higher institution students at large. The result also showed that gender has a significant positive effect (r = 0.352; p< 0.001) on accessibility to internet. From the foregoing the study recommends that there is need for gender balance which can be achieved by gender sensitivity strategies so as to promote pedagogical use of internet. The study further recommends that stake holders like; government, proprietors, and non-governmental organizations(NGO) should invest more on the provision of infrastructural facilities and capacities in order to create opportunity for educational development and enhance the e-readiness of the private universities at large for sustainable development in Nigeria.
