While all summer classes were held online, Lewis & Clark Community College is announcing its hybrid class strategy for the upcoming fall semester.

Many fall courses will still be taught in a virtual environment to limit on campus traffic, a full array of options will be made available, including Virtual Class Meetings, Virtual Blended, Traditional, Web, and Web Blended.

Students, faculty, and staff who return to campus must abide by Illinois Department of Public Health requirements, which include wearing a mask or cloth face covering, maintaining social distancing, and not gathering in groups.

For further details regarding these options, visit this story at AltonDailyNews.com or call (618) 468-2222 to make an appointment with a Lewis & Clark advisor.

Fall courses will be offered through five different modes of instruction:

  • Virtual Class Meetings (VCM) – Classes meet during regularly scheduled class times through a virtual meeting platform such as Collaborate or Zoom.
  • Virtual Blended Classes (VBC) – Classes meet during regularly scheduled class times through a virtual meeting platform such as Collaborate or Zoom and meet on an L&C campus to complete any mandatory course work that cannot be completed virtually (i.e. labs/studio/clinicals/field experience or work).
  • Traditional, Face-to-Face (TF) – Classes meet on the Godfrey Campus and/or other campus locations.
  • Online (WW) – Classes are fully online with no on-campus or virtual class meetings. Some online courses may require in-person proctored tests.
  • Web Blended (WB) – Classes where most of the work is completed online with some on-campus requirements. Classes meet on the Godfrey Campus and/or other campus locations.
