Online learning modalities.


Throughout the past few decades, the incidence of Chronic Energy Deficiency(CED) and Obesity have been steadily increasing worldwide. The situation has been further aggravated by Covid-19 pandemic which forced many schools, including De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute (DLSMHSI), to shift towards online learning modalities. This study assessed the perceptions of Grade 12 students of DLSMHSI on CED and Obesity in relation to online learning modalities. Majority of the respondents strongly agreed that increasing CED and obesity cases were related to online learning . No major difference was found between age, sex, and socioeconomic groups. However, the nonsignificance of socioeconomic status to CED and Obesity perception was found to be an outlier. The study revealed that most of the Grade 12 students of DLSMHSI believe that online learning aggravates the prevalence of both CED and Obesity. Additional studies may be considered in different institutions, age groups or within a completely different context of online modalities in relation to non-communicable diseases.
