AbstractDifferent Education Reform Acts and Policies have been promulgated in Nigeria. These include the National Policy on education (FRN) as revised in 1998 and 2004, the national policy for Information Technology (IT) of 2001, Federal Ministry of Education (FME, 2004) and the education reform act of 2007etc.These acts/policies show that the Nigerian education sector is abreast of modern technology development. However, this paper examines the NITDA act of 2007 with a view to ascertaining how it has catered for the e-learning needs of those with language problems. The examination reveals that people with language problems have not been taken into consideration. On the basis of this analysis, the paper not only recommends the recognition of such people but also indicates the means of catering for their e-learning needs.
