Another alternative learning modality for the new normal is Modular Distance Learning.
Modular Distance Learning features individualized instruction that allows learners to use self-learning modules (SLMs) in print or digital format/electronic copy, whichever is applicable to the learner. Learners under Modular Distance Learning can also use other resources such as Learner’s Materials, textbooks, activity sheets, study guides, and other study materials.
Usually, teachers will have to deliver appropriate learning materials. However, students can also access these materials by downloading electronic copies through their computer, tablet PC, or smartphone.
The teacher takes the responsibility of monitoring the progress of the learners. If possible, they will conduct home visits to check on each student’s progress and performance.
