This paper describes a test and case study of self-evaluation of online courses during the pandemic time. Due to the Covid-19, the whole world needs to sit on lockdown in different periods. Many things need to be done in all kinds of business including education sector of countries. To sustain the education development, teaching methods had to switch from traditional face-to-face teaching to online courses. The government made decisions quickly, and educational institutions had no time to prepare the materials for online education. All classes of the Mongolian University of Pharmaceutical Sciences switched to online lessons. Challenges were raised before professors and tutors during online teaching. Our university did not have a specific learning management system for online education and e-learning. Therefore, professors used different platforms for their online instructions, such as Zoom and Google meet.

Moreover, different social networking platforms played an active role in communication between students and professors. The situation is challenging for professors and students. To measure the quality of online courses and figure out the positive and weak points of online teaching, we need to evaluate e-learning.
