Education is the process of transmitting, enlightening, imparting, and acquiring systematic instruction/knowledge on a profession/topic. United Nations Goal 4 of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) talks about “Inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all”. Learning could be formal, informal and nonformal. Higher institution system of education is formal with majority done through physical traditional style. The sudden advent of COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 distorted academic calendar all over the world and over a year down the line, most institutions in Nigeria especially government-owned are still struggling to maintain balance. The need to switch from traditional style of learning to virtual or combination of both as the need arises brought about different challenges and the pace of migration differs. Most private institutions were recorded to have migrated almost immediately thus exhibiting levels of ICT readiness. This research investigated into 15 selected institutions in the Southwest, Nigeria comprising of 10 public and 5 private institutions with a view to determine the pace of migration and effectiveness of the new style. Mixed methods of qualitative (interviews) and quantitative (questionnaires) were adopted to extract, verify and analyze the data generated from the study. Findings revealed 65% of students were of the opinion that virtual classes was mildly effective as knowledge were not well communicated while 19% believed that it was effective with only 15% disagreeing totally. However, given the revolution that have occurred in the educational sector, institutions and government need to arise and chart the new path forward to remove the country from the primitive system and place into a global classroom in which information is available and accessible to all from anywhere.
