Authors(2) :-Andrew Obida Yoila, Emeka Joshua Chukwuemeka

Online learning is taking the place of class room teaching by creating the availability of open course materials for learners to access via different platforms. This paper seeks to evaluate Eastern Mediterranean University Open Courses (EMU OCs) base on the first principle of instruction. Data collection was carried out using an inventory to evaluate various EMU Open Courses. The total of 12 courses was chosen from EMU OCs. Data analysis was done using descriptive quantitative methods with Statistical Package for the Socials Sciences (SPSS). It was observed that, most of the EMU OCs score low points when evaluated with the principles of instruction.
