Project Body:


INTRODUCTION

Imo state university teaches around 24,000 students undertaking degrees, Masters, research, professional programmes and short courses making IMSU one of the top 15 most popular universities in Nigeria. Since its foundation in 1984, the University is very much associated with courses that are taught face to face which has become clear that within the context academic staff is finding it very difficult to determine the best ways to make use a model of teaching where the teacher controls and is at the centre of the process in order to reduce falling standard of education.  The predicament on the falling standard of education in Nigeria had always been a matter of concern to the participants in the education industry. The missions of formal education is to broaden one’s mental horizons, develop the child’s talent, physical and mental intellectual skills, help to acquire vocational training and then develop healthy attitude and sense of belonging and to participate actively in family and community affairs (Duru 2011), but environment in which that mission exists is changing dramatically, because the world is today celebrating the improvements in communication technology which has broadened the scope of communication through Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). Modern Technology in communication no doubt has turned the entire world into a “Global village’’. Social networking tools are rapidly changing the communications landscape. Social networking   helps people to be better informed, enlightened, and keeping abreast with world developments. In today higher education settings, instructors, students, and others collaborate make use of social networks. The influence of social networking on learning and teaching environments is growing more each year. Social networking applications can reinforce class material and positively influence discussions, and collaborative work. Social network technologies offer the capability to both receive and create content with the hope that a collective intelligence emerges.
