Access to education in Nigeria, especially at the tertiary level has become a major challenge. The quality of education being provided in schools is another issue begging for attention. Coupled with this is the problem of teaching which has become very uninteresting and boring, students are not motivated as active participants in the learning process. This paper looks at the issue of teaching and learning in cyberspace, which provides a synchronous forum for discussing, sharing, reviewing and collaboration among peers and teachers. Despite the challenges of sporadic electricity supply, unreliable telephone facilities, high rates paid for poor internet connections, inadequate and poor ICT infrastructure, teaching and learning in cyberspace offers several advantages which includes ease and cost of access to education, flexibility for learners in terms of study time and pace. A proper implementation of teaching and learning in cyberspace will enable many Institutions to tap and utilize the expertise and skills of experts across the globe.
