The Department of Education (DepEd) has distributed more than 533 million self-learning modules that will be used for blended learning this coming school year, according to Education Undersecretary Tonisito Umali in a report by GMA News.

Interviewed on Super Radyo dzBB on Thursday, Umali said students will use a set of modules for the first two weeks of the classes starting October 5.

“We have already distributed 533,209,023 self-learning modules nationwide as of September 27 po ito. We're good to go,” Umali said.

According to Umali, around 24.72 million students both in public and private schools have already enrolled. The number is around 90% of the total enrollment recorded last year, he added.

“Alam naman po ng ating mga guro na napakahirap po talaga ng kanilang hinaharap ngayon sa ganitong uri ng sitwasyon,” Umali said.

“Nakikita po namin 'yan. Kami po ay humihingi ng pang-unawa sa lahat dahil wala naman pong may gusto na ganito ang pasukin nating sitwasyon pero kailangan may gawin tayo,” he added.

DepEd earlier said it would encourage students with smartphones to access the modules online instead of availing the printed documents to ease printing requirements. 

DepEd Undersecretary Diosdado Antonio said that 59% of the 22 million students enrolled in public schools or almost 13 million learners preferred the use of the printed lessons.

“Sa first quarter, sinubok natin na tugunan 'yung mga preferences ng mga pamilya kaya popular 'yung printed self-learning modules,” San Antonio said.

“Pero, ang pinu-push din natin sa mga susunod na quarters, susubukin natin na kung ‘yung mga pamilya ay may mga gadgets, ay idi-discourage natin na kumuha ng printed self-learning modules,” he added.

With this, San Antonio said the number of students who will be provided with the printed copy of the self-learning modules will be reduced to six million from 13 million.
