As universities prepare for a year of online classes (and explore possible hybrid setups wherein partial requirements are still fulfilled on-campus in compliance with social distancing guidelines), several campuses have already launched their online portals for upcoming digital courses. Students can already start familiarizing themselves with these platforms as enrollment begins for the upcoming academic year.

Lyceum of the Philippines University, for instance, "through a Learning Management System, or through a modular method wherin learning packets will be delivered to students, or a combination of both" will be adopting a "flexible learning" plan for their students. They've also already launched their myLPU e-Learning Portal. Meanwhile, University of Santo Tomas released a comprehensive list of FAQs on their website explaining their COVID-19 remote teaching and learning guidelines, as well as the steps they are taking to help students from different socio-economic standings continue to receive education.

They also clarified that "students WHO CANNOT participate in the teaching-learning activities (due to family concerns, connectivity problems, health, volunteer work, etc. ) can focus on their other pressing concerns and instead complete their academic requirements until December 2020."
