Education has been significantly disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide. The instructional delivery has shifted from the face-to-face modality to flexible learning modalities. Using descriptive research design, this study determined the flexible learning experiences in terms of the learning context, learning modalities, learning materials, and tasks and assessment tasks; determined the attitudes towards flexible learning, and developed a self-regulated learning model. Data were gathered using an online survey, virtual focus group discussion, and informal interviews. Respondents consisted of 434 students from different levels in the Bicol Region, the Philippines, who responded to the validated researcher-made questionnaire, which was posted for six weeks using a Google Form. Results reveal that most students use a common area in the house as a venue for learning at home during the specific official schedule and at an alternative schedule. Both synchronous and asynchronous modalities were utilized using both individual and group learning tasks, different teaching strategies, and learning resources such as presentations, videos, handouts/pdfs, activity/worksheets, and modules prepared by teachers. Among the device used, the phone was always used while the laptop was sometimes used. Assessment tasks included written assessment, performance assessment, and individual or group assessments. The students generally have a positive attitude towards the teacher, the learning resources, the teaching methods and learning tasks, the technology tools, and have an ambivalent attitude towards flexible learning in general. A self-regulated learning model was proposed based on the students’ experiences and narratives.
