The objective of the present study is to determine whether there is a significant relationship between the students' readiness in online learning and their emotional intelligence levels. Correlational research method was used in the study. Online Learning Readiness Scale which was developed by Hung et al. (2010) has been used and Trait Emotional Intelligence Scale - Short Form (TEIS-SF) developed by K. Petrides and Furnham (2000, 2001) were used as data collection tools. The questionnaires were applied to 95 students who attend Computer II course, which is provided only through distance learning in Uludağ University. The conducted analyses demonstrated that there was a meaningful relationship between students' online learning readiness and the individual's emotional intelligence dimension. Individuals with a high social skills sub-dimension of emotional intelligence had high online learning readiness levels. Furthermore, it was determined that self-control emotional intelligence sub-dimension had a greater prediction power on learner control, one of the online learning readiness levels, when compared to other emotional intelligence sub-dimensions.
