Emeodu, Elijah Nwabueze | Obuzor, Mezewo Emerinwe "Covid-19 Pandemic and Educational Innovations and Development of Nigerian Tertiary Institutions in the 21st Century" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-5 | Issue-5, August 2021, pp.1989-1996, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd46278.pdf

Covid-19 is a social problem with both positive and negative implications on the people. A lot of studies were conducted on the negative implications of covid-19 on nation’s educational development, regrettably, there were paucity of scholarsly studies on the posivtive implication of this pandemic on the educational development in Nigeria. Therefore, this study seeks to fill this gap in scholarship by examining the positive implications of Covid-19 pandemic on educational development of tertiary institutions in the 21st century in Nigeria. Thus, the study was guided with three objectives and three corresponding research questions. The social change theory (evolutionary perspectives) and functionalist theory were used as the theoretical approaches to the study.. The study adopted a quantitative method, whereby, the survey design was adopted. The questionnaire instrument was used for data collection. The instrument was titled Covid-19 Pandemic Questionnaire (CPQ) and Educational Innovations, Improvement and Development Questionnaire (EIIDQ). The four Likert scale (SA, A, D and SD) were also used. The sample size for the study was 400 derived through convenience sampling technique. The study equally used quota, purposive and accidental sampling techniques. Simple percentage, mean and standard deviation were used for data analysis. The paper reveals that apart from the negative outcome, the outbreak of covid-19 in Rivers State brought about positive outcome in the tertiary institutions, as there were perceived improvement, innovations and development in the system, through the use of online or e-learning medium. Therefore, the study recommends that teachers who are the pioneer of teaching or education, should even at this period of time when there is ease of the pandemic, utilize or subject the students with e-learning so as to avoid shock in case of future occurrence, and also, that teachers and students should do the needful to ensure they improve on ICT skills in case there is need for e-learning.
