Abstract

Social media is significantly paving its way in the classroom and it could be useful for effective instructional delivery of Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) programmes. This study was carried out in Enugu State , Nigeria to determine Social media as a platform for effective instructional delivery of TVET programmes in Public Universities in Enugu State.  Survey research design was employed for the study. The population consisted of 97 TVET lecturers teaching in the two public universities offering TVET programmes in Enugu State. The entire population was used. Therefore, no sample was drawn because of the manageable size of the population. Two research questions were answered by the study and two null hypotheses tested at .05 level of significance.  The result of the study revealed that social media is a useful platform for effective TVET delivery but TVET lecturers utilize social media to a low extent.  From the findings of the study, the researchers recommended among others that TVET lecturers should update their skills in the use of social media and also, TVET institutions should upgrade social media facilities in their various institutions for effective utilization in TVET delivery.
