The study was conducted in five (5) State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) in CARAGA Region. A Simple Random Sampling was employed both for faculty and student respondents. Frequency, percentage, and average were used to determine the descriptive interpretation of data collected in this study. This paper describes and identifies the common ICT tools used in the teaching and learning process.
