The Covid-19 pandemic turned educational institutions from face-to-face to modular learning modality. Through the implementation of distance learning scheme in the Philippines, Eastern Samar State University (ESSU) also adapted this new normal learning strategy through development of mobile-based course modules for distance learning as an alternative to its present modular distance learning approach. Paper-based modules seemed to be expensive and sometimes texts are not clear and readable. Thus, students get bored and perform low at school. As a response, a mobile-based course learning module is developed for offline learners. This study employs Waterfall model in the development of the application. This model follows several phases from designing, developing and testing the application to ensure its quality. The findings of the study show that the application is highly usable and functional after series of tests conducted. Moreover, it gained 88.75 overall score in the System Usability test conducted. This implies that the application is usable, user-friendly, functional, and portable. A further study may be conducted on the effectiveness of the mobile application in the instruction.
