Abstract:
This study ascertained students’ opinions on whether integration of game-based instruction into teaching/learning processes can serve any significance towards 21st century education for self-reliant efforts in Nigerian universities. A descriptive survey method was utilized for the study.

A convenient sampling frame was applied to draw 76 respondents for the study. A 15-item questionnaire tagged “Learners’ Perceptions of Integrating Game-Based Instruction and Enhancement of 21st Century Education for Self-Reliant Efforts Questionnaire” (LPIGIECESREQ) was utilized to collect data. Cronbach Alpha was used to estimate the reliability of the instrument. Data analysis was achieved using frequencies and percentages.
