STEM education in the Philippines compels essential changes amidst the pandemic. The pedagogical modifications must adapt towards the ease of return to a face-to-face and hybrid learning environment. Underperforming students have been a continuing issue among learners, as displayed in the quarterly mean percentage score in general chemistry. Utilizing Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), this paper investigates the improvement of learning among grade 12 STEM students. The study was conducted during the 3rd Quarterly Period in General Chemistry 2 with learning delivery modification employing a flipped classroom method in teaching thermochemistry, chemical kinetics, and intermolecular forces. Using the pretest-posttest method (PPM) treated with the Hake g factor of normalized gain to measure students' cognitive learning gains and a two-tailed t-test to determine the significant difference in the PPM result, the study investigates the students' perception of using the MOOC and flipped classroom method as a pedagogical approach. As supported by the t-test result, the Hake g result of 0.112 (low gain) shows insignificant changes in cognitive improvements. Students perceive this as a result of the following factors: internet connectivity and technological availability. However, students have elaborated that the intervention has improved the lesson delivery by providing them with self-learning options, flexible time, and increased learning vigor and appreciation towards laboratory experiments. Furthermore, the researcher recommends profound planning and execution during the implementation of the intervention. In conclusion, STEM education in the Philippines needs to be more flexible and accessible to meet the needs of learners by determining optimal implementation strategies.
