The purpose of this study was to develop and validate study e-content in teaching and learning of automobile lighting system in technical colleges in Niger State, Nigeria. The study adopted Research and Development (R & D) design. The researchers modified the 10 steps of R & D model to 5 steps cycle which fits the present study. The five modified phases include the development of e-content: phase I: determination of the contents of e-content teaching and learning package, determination of the important e-content skills, knowledge and attitude needed by students in automobile lighting system, development of a draft e-content teaching and learning package based on the findings from phase II, validation of e-content and revision of the draft e-content teaching and learning package based on feedback from phase IV. The e-content package was produced on HTML5. The development and validation of the package was conducted using requirement specification as the basis of reference. The validation activities involved Alpha and Beta tests. The reliability coefficient of the instrument yielded 0.86 using Cronbach alpha technique; two research questions were analyzed using mean values and standard deviation. At the end of the validation, e-content teaching and learning package was found to perform all the tasks listed in the requirement specification.
