ICT has a range of potential impact on students’ learning outcome such as substantial increase in student enrollment, improved attendance, increased knowledge of school subjects, improved attitudes about learning, and the acquisition of new skills. Moreover, it supports classroom outcome by making class more interactive and learning enjoyable.
