Modular learning is a form of distance learning that uses Self-Learning Modules (SLM) based on the most essential learning competencies (MELCS) provided by DepEd. The modules include sections on motivation and assessment that serve as a complete guide of both teachers' and students' desired competencies. Flexible. Students can set their own schedule in finishing the tasks in the module.
Student-centered. Students have their own way of learning that would work for them. Since the accomplishment of tasks is self-paced, students learn to have a sense of responsibility Accessibility. Resources within the locality are available not always in the form of online resources, but the help from the community. In this way, they become inquisitive and creative in looking for answers to their questions prior to the activities.
The contents of the module are easier to grasps than those in the books. Key points are included as supplements to the books as reference.
Cost-efficient. Parents and guardians can save a lot of transportation and accommodation. The only expense is in the printing of modules which are shouldered by schools.
