Course Offering Formats
LCC will hold all its classes online this summer. Classes will be held in two formats:
- Asynchronous virtual, which is a traditional online course that does not have set meeting times or days
- Real-time virtual, in which courses will have faculty instruction live on certain days and times. These sections will have specific meeting days/times listed. Students do not report to campus during those meeting times but are required to be engaged in the course online during those days/times.
The college expects fall course offerings to fit into five types.
- ON - Online: Traditional, asynchronous online courses.
- ORT - Partial Scheduled Lecture: An online real time (ORT) class that has some regularly scheduled online meeting day(s) and time(s) along with unscheduled online instruction and activities.
- ORT - Full Scheduled Lecture: An online real time (ORT) class where all instruction is delivered online during designated meeting day(s) and times.
- OH - Online Hybrid: A class that has some regularly scheduled classroom instruction along with online coursework and activities. Students will receive face-to-face instruction in the traditional classroom, lab, or worksite, and will also participate in online instruction/learning.
- Face-to-Face: A traditional, in-person class with on-campus instruction.
A majority of the course offerings will fit in the first three categories.
The fourth and fifth categories will be mostly limited to select courses that require hands-on components, such as welding, aviation, heavy equipment and EMS/paramedic. Limits on the fourth and fifth types of offering are critical to ensure the college community can continue to maintain physical distancing requirements even as we begin to offer face-to-face instruction.
Student and academic services will continue to be offered remotely during the fall.
LCC remains in close communication with our local health departments, and the college will continue to adjust its plans as needed to protect the health and safety of our students, employees and community.
Please note: All summer and fall 2020 course fees, approved by the LCC Board of Trustees, remain unchanged. In April 2020, the LCC Board of Trustees did approve permanently eliminating the $25 online virtual fee. You will not see that fee on your bill during fall 2020, or anytime thereafter.
