Today’s technology oriented environment has led to the emergence of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The appropriate utilization of ICT helps in providing access to education, to strengthen the relevance of education to the increasingly digital workplace, and to raise educational quality. India has faced drastic changes and challenges in higher education in 21st century. One of the most important challenges is the use of ICT in teaching English language as well as English literature. Though ICT has opened windows to the vast virtual world, the students and teachers are in a fix to use the exhaustive techniques provided by ICT. Thus the main focus of this paper will be the use of ICT in teaching-learning process in colleges, with special reference to teach English language, literature, grammar and composition. The introduction of computer has facilitated in the promotion of better education. It is observed that Indian higher education has been facing tough challenges like the need for better institutes, trained faculty, more research intensive institutes and employability even in the presence of ICT. There are various reasons behind such environment and one of the key challenges is to utilise the technology. The teachers need to be aware of the use of various multimedia technologies, internet and also the mobile usage. Pursuing Refreshers’ courses is not sufficient. The teachers need to have practical knowledge of using new methodologies while teaching. The modern young students are armed with new technologies. They need to be guided on the usage and benefits of those technologies and digital devices, otherwise either they would not use it or they would simply misuse the powerful vast world of ICT. It has been observed that knowledge which is not applicable is as useless as the bath of an elephant, which soon after showering itself with good water proceeds to shower itself with mud and sand.
