University X, a learning institution in the Philippines that envisions to be a model of learning where relevant knowledge is acquired and skills are developed in response to the needs of the global community initiated e- learning class called the “Live” sessions. This paper examined the experiences of Doctor of Education students on “Live” sessions of University X. It determined the experiences of the participants on these sessions; identified the problems encountered by the participants; and determined the interventions suggested to improve the “Live” sessions. Through purposive sampling, a total of eight (8) Doctor of Education students enrolled under two (2) EdD subjects were identified as participants of this research. Utilizing Quantitative Content Analysis as the research design, written text in the form of feedback gathered thru the FB Messenger were analyzed in the study. The process also considered the steps in Quantitative Content Analysis. Findings of the study revealed that the respondents experienced the “Live” online sessions as convenient, interactive and natural as the normal classroom settings. On the other hand, availability of equipment such as computer and internet remain to be the problem during the “Live” online sessions. Hence, the respondents suggested that University X should establish an e-classroom that can support e-learning activities.
