Since COVID-19 outbreak has come leading the face-to-face classes to be suspended, online learning has started to become a learning modality for students to pursue their education. The research design used in this study is phenomenological design, which is a qualitative research method used to understand the lived experiences in online learning. The interview was done with ten participants who are currently studying at private and public schools in Metro Manila, to gather the lived experiences in online learning focusing on the benefits, challenges and lived experiences. Students were able to adjust their schedules, study lessons at their own pace and perform tasks online with the help of the internet. Aside from it, they were no longer needed to come to school to take assessments and submit requirements to the teacher in a face-to-face setting. However, the common challenge they had encountered consisted of internet connection problems. With the help of online learning, students were able to be more independent, flexible focused and organized. They were also able to spend more time with their families and at home since online learning could be done anywhere if they have gadgets needed. Moreover, they were able to learn more technological skills via various online platforms and applications. After the pandemic, hybrid learning can be implemented instead of pure online learning to mold the perspectives of students in learning modalities.
