Due to the COVID 19 pandemic that held the whole world in suspense and in crisis, the consequential lockdown resulted into unparalleled education disruption. This invariably reduced available opportunities for many people, both young and old. In another perspective, this crisis has inspired technology innovation in individuals, group and governments within the education sector to aid teaching and learning during the lockdown period. It is as a result of this that this study aims at providing an insight into the effective use of electronic information resources in teaching and learning in secondary schools in Nsukka town of Enugu state during the COVID 19 pandemic. The study made use of descriptive design with quantitative method. The study purposively selected two schools that conducted teaching and learning during COVID19 pandemic. Out of the 87 population, the study sampled 30 teachers that were involved in teaching in the both schools during COVID19 era. Questionnaire was used as instruments of data collection. The data from questionnaire was analyzed using percentage. The result revealed that the schools under study possessed EIRs such as phone, computer, television, internet facilities, however the use of some of these resources were not at a very high extent because of some challenges such as power outage, lack of skill by teachers and students, lack of android phones, low bandwidth.
