This paper investigated the utilization of e-resources for teaching and learning of physical and health education courses in colleges of education Oyo. The instrument for data collection was a self-developed questionnaire with the modified five points Likert scale. The instrument has three scales with reliability value obtained through Cronbach alpha of 0.82 for Awareness of E-Resources Utilization Scale (AWERUS), 0.80 for Accessibility of E-Resources Scale (AERUS), and 0.69 for Usability of E-Resources Utilization Scale (UERS) through Cronbach alpha statistical tool while the instrument has six (6) items each. The demographic data of the respondents were analyzed with frequency counts and percentages while an inferential statistic of chi-square was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 alpha level. The finding revealed that awareness, accessibility and usability of electronic resources significantly influence their utilization. Based on the findings the following recommendations were made; That the College management should embark on sensitization and publicity drives by giving more education to both staff and students on the available electronic information resources within the College. That both Academic staff and students be trained with ICT knowledge so as to be ICT compliant and utilize more e-resources.
