ABSTRACT
This study assessed the availability and use of ICT-based Instructional tools in selected colleges in Ogun State, Nigeria. This study adopted a descriptive survey research design. Simple random sampling technique was used to select 248 respondents for the study. Data was collected with the use of questionnaires titled (ICT-bIPIMC) and a checklist during their faculty meetings/seminars, and the data collected were analysed uisng simple frequency and percentage techniques. It was revealed that Computer Aided Instruction (CAI), Social Media, Human Patient Simulation (HPS), PowerPoint Slides (Microsoft): PP slides, and Medical videos (MV), Multimedia Classrooms (Audio Visual Centre), Projectors, E-Medical journals and animation clips were the only available ICT-based tools for Instructional tools in Ogun State medical colleges. Based on the findings, Internet connected laptops (34%), E-medical journals (40%), Computer-aided instructions (39%), social media (45%) and online educational forum (37%) were the major ICT-based tools used at least twice daily. The study recommended that ICT-based instructional tools should be compulsory for Instructional practices among lecturers, laboratory technologists and clinical instructors, medical colleges and should be motivated to use ICT-based tools for Instructional tools through training and workshop on how to effectively use the available tools.
