Abstract: Some teaching methods adopted for disseminating Information Communication Technology Related Courses (ICTRC) in institutions of learning have been observed to be inadequate in bringing about the right perception and performance in students. In order to qualitatively establish the efficiency of tutoring ICTRC, this study investigates the effect of ICT resources on students’ perception and performance in ICTRC. Two hundred and forty-eight (248) students in the Department of Computer Science/ICT from two universities: a Federal and a Private University from the South-South region of Nigeria were used. A pre-test, post-test control group and quasi experimental design were utilized. Findings revealed that teaching ICTRC without using ICT resources are not effective at empowering the students with the right perception and the students are not enabled to perform to the best of their ability. Some recommendations are proffered encouraging ICT aided teaching strategies in Nigeria.
