Background/Objectives: The investment in e-learning platforms is a major determinant among educational institutions, given the challenge brought by Covid-19 in order to continually support remote studies of students. This study aimed to evaluate large secondary schools' preparedness to implement e-Learning in Social Studies subjects in the Schools Division of Zambales. Methods/Statistical analysis: The research design is descriptive and quantitative. The study used Google Forms to obtain information related to the topic. Data collection from 133 teachers from large secondary schools in the Schools Division of Zambales was voluntary and based on informed consent and anonymity. Findings: The result revealed that the respondents were very prepared while large secondary schools were prepared for implementing e-Learning. There was a significant difference in the preparedness of teachers as to technology access as to their age and sex, while no statistically detected difference in institutional preparedness of large secondary schools in terms of administrative and resource support when respondents are grouped according to profile. An Information System action plan has been developed to further improve large secondary schools' preparedness in implementing e-Learning. Improvements/Applications: These findings imply the need for community and stakeholders’ partnership among schools to ensure effective use of e-Learning platforms, among others.

We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized.

The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
