Abstract

Education has always been said to be the bedrock of development. However, for education to take place in its true sense knowledge must be acquired and the acquired knowledge must have resulted in positive change in the life of those who acquired it. The introduction and proliferation of Information and Communication technology (ICT) has greatly affected the availability, distribution and accessibility to knowledge. The twenty first century more than any other century in human history has witnessed tremendous and radical change in information transmission and dissemination. Information is now available anywhere, any place and at any time. This access to information has revolutionized the traditional methods of knowledge acquisition. This paper seeks to examine how web-based learning resources have impacted/impacting on how students acquire knowledge with a view to encouraging or discouraging it.
