Self-Regulated Learning is a method of learning in which a learner sets goals, controls and manages his learning as well as evaluating himself. Despite numerous benefits of utilization of technology-oriented strategies for learning, studies have shown that the adoptions are often poorly adopted for use. The objectives of this study therefore were to investigate undergraduate students’ utilization of technologies for SRL; and influence of gender, academic level; and school proprietorship on the utilization of technologies for SRL. This study adopted the descriptive design of quantitative survey type. The sample comprised 389 respondents across federal, state and private universities in Kwara state. Researcher-designed questionnaire was used to collect data. The instrument was validated by three lecturers and was tested for reliability. The value using crombach alpha was 0.85 on Utilization. Data collected were analyzed and tested using frequency count, mean, t-test and ANOVA while Scheffe’s post-hoc was used to indicate the direction of significant differences at 0.05significant level. The findings established that undergraduate students utilize blog, Facebook, bookmark, google calendar and wiki technologies for SRL.
