This study determined the extent to which ICT resources are adequately provided and utilized by computer science lecturers for instructional delivery in Nigerian tertiary institutions. Thirty science educators were randomly selected from the faculties of science and science and technology education in two universities in Lagos state. Teacher’ utilization of ICT resources questionnaire was used for data collection. Data were analyzed using bar chart and percentage. The finding shows that ICT resources are not adequate and many of the educators rarely use the available ICT resources for relevant instructional delivery. Suggestions were made for improvement.
