    Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti (ABUAD) is the first University in Nigeria that had introduced Information Communication Technology (ICT) facilities into teaching and learning. The purpose of this work was to examine the learning tools employed in the modern teaching and learning as practiced in Afe Babalola University (ABUAD), the problems and the challenges in the application and make recommendations to improve the effective application. The authors, who are teachers in various departments of the university and used the facilities to teach, collected data through personal observations, responses to structured questionnaires and personal interviews. ABUAD had a variety of ICT facilities which had improved teaching and learning in ABUAD. In spite of these facilities, the training programme, the technical support provided and the positive effect on teaching and learning, not all the lecturers have put them to effective usage for varied reasons. These were reviewed and recommendations were made to improve usage.
