Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has obviously become an important part of our everyday life, ICT has changed the nature of work, skills required and qualifications for today's workers in most fields and professions due to its diffusion in our daily lives. For the quality of learning to be at its optimum, higher educational institution in most developing countries cannot continue to deliver traditional methods of education, without the involvement of ICT in its learning and teaching processes as tools to help merge them into the rapidly evolving information age. In this paper, a higher institution in the South West region of Nigeria which is one of the leading Universities in the African continent was used in this study to analyze how ICT can transform the learning and teaching environment of the Higher Institution and if introduced to the institution, learning and teaching context will be sustainable. The study was achieved by carrying out a survey that included lecturers of the University and students presently studying in various higher institutions in the UK who at one time had prior educational experience at the University.
