Millions of students in Nigeria cannot fully benefit from a traditional education program because they are handicap or in have disabilities that hinder their ability to participate in typical classroom environment. Technology can be used to improve teaching and learning processes in this age of rapid technological advancement. Integrating technology in learning, particularly in higher education, can empower both instructors and learners to improve the quality of education as well as the expected learning goals. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the current educational technologies used in some tertiary institutions in Nigeria and their impact on the learning of students through the following aspects: the adoption of educational technologies in teaching and learning processes by tertiary institutions affects students with the impact of educational technologies. The teaching of academic staff also faces challenges in the adoption of teaching and learning educational technologies. Computer-based technologies can play a particularly important role for these students. Computer technology can not only facilitate a wider range of educational activities to meet a variety of needs for students with mild learning disorders, but there is now adaptive technology that can enable even students with severe disabilities to become active learners in the classroom with their peers without disabilities. The result shows that technology has a positive impact on learning process.

In my paper research I will be talking briefly about the significant development in programming language during the period of technology evolution and internet time, I will classify this period into two main milestones the first milestone will cover the period 1990s (1990-1999) and the second will cover the last 15 years (2000 – 2015), I will be more focusing on the second milestone and specially the main changes and development tolls in most popular languages this days and make comparison between the mostly used programming language in this year along with the market share for each one.
