Abstract: In the past, especially in underdeveloped countries, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools in higher education institutions were underutilized. But the unanticipated Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) disaster, has forced everyone in the world to rely on ICT resources for education. This paper discusses the need to intensify the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools in higher education institutions by thoroughly exploiting the COVID-19 global state of emergency. The study assesses the value of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) resources in academic institutions. More so, the study goes into further detail about the contributions of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) resources in higher education institutions during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this study, a scoping review was chosen in selecting previous studies related to the field of current research. The findings of this study revealed that the applications of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools are essential for educational advancement; that it significantly accelerated education process during the pandemic. The study’s findings also revealed that there are several key factors that can help intensify the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools in higher education institutions.
