The study aimed at finding the extent of availability and utilization of ICT facilities in teaching OTM courses. Four research questions were used to guide the study while three null hypotheses were tested. Descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. A sample of 88 OTM lecturers from south eastern polytechnic in Nigeria was used for the study. Data were collected for the study by means of a 50- item validated questionnaire. Split half method was used to determine the reliability of the instrument. The reliability co-efficient of the instrument of the study was found to be 0.75, 0.82, 0.82, 0.76 and 0.88 respectively. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer research questions while the null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance using t-test. The findings of the study revealed that ICT facilities for teaching OTM courses in polytechnics of south eastern state in Nigeria were available at low extent. It was also revealed that polytechnic OTM lecturers utilize computer, telecommunication, multimedia and internet facilities at low extent in teaching OTM courses. However, gender does not affect OTM lecturer utilization of computer facilities in teaching while location of institution tended to affect their response on the extent of telecommunication facilities utilization in teaching. Based on the findings of the study, relevant recommendations were made towards improving the level of availability and utilization of ICT facilities in teaching which include putting up modalities like Ari-Hub to ensure easy access to ICT facilities by lecturers and students and frequent training and retraining of OTM lecturers to ensure effective utilization of these facilities. The implications of the findings were discussed and conclusion was drawn.
