LLCC celebrates 20th anniversary of offering online classes
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WRSP) —
Lincoln Land Community College (LLCC) is celebrating the 20th anniversary of their first online class.
The first class to be available online was back in 1997 and was a composition class.
Lincoln Land hopes to evolve and add more online course throughout the years.
Online classes are beneficial to older working adult students.
“Getting out to campus isn't always an option,” Dean of Academic Innovation and Learning, Rebeca Parton said. “Online education allows them to continue their education or begin and start their education when they would have otherwise because of their life."
Over the last 20 years, the college has enrolled more than 85,000 students in online classes.
