Three major problems identified in the paper include the (i) lack of infrastructure and systems in place to facilitate effective monitoring as a result utilization of ICTs in Tanzanian education institutions are dismal due to low connectivity and teledensity (ii) insufficient numbers of qualified technical personnel to manage and maintain ICT resources, (iii) inadequate training and capacity development resulting in underutilization of ICT facilities.
