Objectives: To investigate the perceptions of principals in integrating cloud computing in teaching-learning process. Specifically, to consider the perceptions of male and female principals in integrating cloud computing in teachinglearning process. Method: The researcher used the survey research method with the aid of well-structured Perception of Principals in Integrating Cloud Computing in Teaching-Learning Process Questionnaire (PPICCTLPQ). Two research questions and hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. The population of the study comprised of all principals in public secondary schools in Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State. The twenty-four (24) principals from the different public secondary schools in the study area made up the sample size. Reliability test using Crombach Alpha with coefficient of 0.81 proved that the instrument was reliable. Chi-Square analysis was used to test the stated hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. Findings: twentyone (21) questionnaires were returned completed which gave a response rate of 87.5%. The demographic distribution showed that majority of the principals encountered were male accounting for 13(61.90%) followed by female accounting for 8(38.10%). Based on the response obtained from research question one, 20(9.24%) strongly agreed while 8(38.10%) strongly disagreed. Novelty: The study showed that there was significant difference in the integration of cloud computing in teaching and learning process among principals in public secondary schools in the study area. The study recommends that government and stake holders in the education sector should ensure provision of necessary facilities and facilitate the orientation of principals and school teachers on the relevance of cloud computing.
