Abstract

Creativity is the fuel of innovative businesses and innovative businesses are powered by digitalization. Hence, the study determines the extent to which creative digital skills are taught by Office Technology and Management (OTM) educators in polytechnics in Delta State. Three research questions and three null hypotheses guided the study. A descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. The entire population of 26 OTM educators in Delta State was studied without sampling. A four point rating scale questionnaire containing 22 items was used for data collection. Cronbach Alpha was used to establish the reliability of the instrument which yielded coefficients of 0.71, 0.79 and 0.86 for the different clusters with an overall coefficient of 0.79. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while t-test was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance using SPSS 23.0. Findings of the study revealed that computer animation, mobile app development and online content creation skills were poorly taught by OTM educators in polytechnics in Delta State. The study also disclosed that the male and female OTM educators did not differ significantly in their mean ratings on the extent of teaching of computer animation, mobile app development and online content creation skills. The study concluded that OTM educators do not have the requisite instructional experience to teach computer animation, mobile app development and online content creation skills among students in polytechnics in Delta State. Among others, it was recommended that OTM educators should develop a collaborative synergy with app developers to enable them help their students acquire advanced computer animation, mobile app development and online content creation skills to start-up digital oriented businesses in Delta State and Nigeria at large.
