The study accessed availability and degree of utilization of ICT tools for effective instructional delivery in tertiary institutions in Cross River State. Lecturers selected for the study 300 using simple random sampling. Four research questions were formulated to guide the study. A questionnaire titled Availability and Utilization of ICT tools for effective instructional delivery in tertiary institutions in Cross River State was the only instrument used for data collection (ICTTEIDQ). The questions were statistically analysed using simple percentage. The results obtained revealed that availability and utilization of ICT tools for effective instructional delivery is significantly low. Cyber Cafes, internet connectivity and use of lap tops is a common phenomenon among institutions and lecturers. Competence in the use of ICT tools among lecturers is discouraging. However, lecturers from University of Calabar differed significantly with their counterparts from Nuga Poly and COE (A) in terms of utilization and competence of ICT tools. Recommendations were made to enhance the provision and utilization of ICT tools in tertiary institutions in Cross River State.
