Also, the result showed that the most perception among the teachers was that textbook materials in the tablet were relevant and appropriate (X = 2.9840, S.D = 0.87338). Again, the result revealed a significant influence of levels of acceptability of e-learning tablet on teaching-learning activities in senior secondary schools (F = 23.865, p < 0.05). Finally, the result showed a significant influence of students’ knowledge on use of e-learning tablet on their academic performance (F= 58.472, p < 0.05). The study concluded that most teachers perceived that their students welcomed the integration of the e-learning tablet into teaching-learning and that the learning materials in the tablet were relevant and appropriate.
