Effectiveness of flexible learning in teaching college subjects amidst Covid 19 pandemic at CTE, Sultan Kudarat State University,Philippines
Effectiveness of flexible learning
This descriptive action research determines the effectiveness of three(3) online teaching platforms namely; (i) the newly installed and official online platform called the SKSU Electronic Learning Delivery System(ELEADS) (ii)Facebook Group and (iii) Google meet as major accessories in flexible learning using mean, Standard Deviation(SD), t-test and Analysis of Variance(ANOVA) as statistical analysis. Google meet online learning modality ranked first with its weighted mean of 3.68 in terms of the perception relative to content, instructional and technical categories by the one hundred thirty eight (138) respondents, a Bachelor of Elementary Educations(BEED) students enrolled at College of Teacher Education(CTE) at Sultan Kudarat State University(SKSU), academic year 2020-2021. There were five sections among respondents namely BEED 2A,BEED 2B,BEED 2C, BEED 2D and BEED 2E in their subject code name as EDDMATH 2 which have a subject description of teaching intermediate mathematics. Positive skewedness from the normal curve of frequency distributions among the achievement scores of eighty six percent (86%) of respondents, illustrated in the figures below, signifies that flexible learning is very effective without face-to-face actual class discussion. It’s only shows that flexible learning without face-to-face instructions, incurs higher learning achievements among the respondents. Effectiveness of flexible learning in terms of the three(3) online learning modalities is very much acceptable and enjoyable in terms of the teaching and learning process between the researcher and the respondents. The location of flexible learning is not really obstacle if the modality pushes serves as the most convenient, accessible and less expensive in terms of online learning. Respondents, mostly coming from the remote areas, preferred a Facebook group as shown in the analysis of variance (Anova),therefore during this time of covid 19 pandemic, flexible learning facilities most of the knowledge learned by the respondents.
