Abstract: As a result of the mandatory to follow the regulations of the Ministry of Education in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia regarding online teaching responding to Pandemic situation, and to maintain the quality of the teaching process, it was necessary to develop clear, direct, and relevant guidelines for evaluating online teaching to keep teaching at a level in which it promotes the best practices and maintains educational quality. Objectives: Developing an evaluation system for online education and increasing the orientation of the faculty members regarding the global standards in online education, and aligning them with the key performance indicators of the Ministry of Education in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the purpose of monitoring and improving the teaching skills on the Internet for each faculty member to further improve the educational process. Methods: The search strategy began with electronic databases (such as CINAHL and Medline). These searches provided us evaluation tools for review and analysis as blackboard's exemplary course program rubric (2020), California Community Colleges? Online Education Initiative (OEI) Course Design Rubric (2018), The Open SUNY Course Quality Review Rubric (OSCQR) (2016), Quality Matters (QM) Higher Education Rubric (2018), California State University Quality Online Learning and Teaching (QOLT) (2015b), Park University Online Instructor Evaluation System (OIES) (2005), and A Peer Review Guide for Online Courses at Penn State (2017). Results and conclusion: As there is no generic model that may match each institution's online course assessment and evaluation needs, the nursing program specifically tailored the Park University Online Instructor Evaluation System to our online courses, faculty, students, culture, and resources at our institution. Further modification was carried to the tool to be completely compatible with the university's education and learning policies, taking the key performance indicators of our University Learning Management System (LMS) into consideration.
