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 three types.
- Online (ON): Traditional, asynchronous online courses
- Online Real-Time (ORT): Synchronous, virtual live class sessions, with scheduled days and times for lecture
- Online hybrid hands-on lab courses: Some courses include hands-on components that cannot be completed in a virtual world. For these courses, the college is looking at two possibilities. The first is 16-week hybrid courses that begin online in August and move to face-to-face when possible. The second is 8- or 10-week accelerated, face-to-face courses that begin in October. If we cannot teach on campus this fall, these courses will be canceled.
A majority of the course offerings will fit in the first two categories. The third, hybrid category will be limited to select courses that require hands-on components, such as welding, aviation, heavy equipment and EMS/paramedic.
Limits on the third type of offering are critical to ensure the college community can continue to maintain social distancing requirements even as we begin to offer face-to-face instruction. In addition, when employees and students are allowed back on campus, we need to prioritize finishing the 130 sections that were paused during the spring semester.
If we deem it safe for the health and welfare of our students and employees to come back to campus, we will adjust the fall schedule accordingly.
