Introduction
Knowledge integration and management models are enormously vital to guarantee successful national development of any economy and society. The approaches involve the process of including novel information into an existing body of knowledge applying several approaches. The processes entail the determination of how new information and the existing knowledge interrelate with each other, how existing body of knowledge should be made to other to accommodate new information, and how new information should be structured to reflect existing knowledge. ICT scholars (e.g., Agabi, Agbor & Ololube, 2015) beliefs that ICT has a lot to offer towards knowledge integration and creation. However, most governments worldwide have failed to deliver on that front in line with international best practices, because a great deal of time and efforts has been and is still endowed in developing policy guidelines, instead of effective implementation of ICT programmes aimed at elevating and positioning nations in the global academic community.

Objective Of The Special Issue

Objective of the special issue is understanding the role of ICT in knowledge integration and management that underlie modern day teaching and learning. Furthermore, understanding how to move ICT forward with a focus on quality, accessibility, design and development, implementation, effectiveness as well as support would potentially enhance knowledge integration in higher education, which is core to the advancement of teaching and learning processes.

Therefore, this special issue elicits lucid articles based on the following recommended topics. Any other related topics will be considered:

1. Blended learning systems, resources and ITs for knowledge integration and management
2. Curriculum resources relating to knowledge integration and management
3. Digital resources and knowledge integration and management
4. History of instructional/educational technology in knowledge integration and management
