Rend Lake College resuming in-person classes for summer, fall semesters


(WSIL) -- Face-to-face classroom options will return to Rend Lake College this summer and fall, as Covid-19 vaccines continue to roll out.

While some classes have had face-to-face learning experiences for their labs up to this point, this shift will now allow for face-to-face lecture as appropriate.

Options for summer and fall classes will include the following formats. Not all formats will be available for every class.

  • Face-to-Face -- In-person, in-class learning.
  • Online -- Classes conducted online through Canvas. Students will work through course material independently with communication and direction of RLC faculty.
  • Remote -- Class meetings are held synchronously via Zoom on the day and time indicated on the student’s schedule. The percentage of time spent online vs. remote will vary by course.
  • Hybrid -- Classes meet partially on RLC’s campus and partially online/remote. The percentage of time spent on campus will vary by course. If needed, classes will be transitioned to fully online/remote.
  • HyFlex -- Class meetings will be a combination of traditional, online, and remote. Students are not required to attend traditional or remote class meetings. Students have the option to select how to receive instruction and may choose different modes throughout the semester.
  • Blended Flex -- Class meetings are a combination of instructional modalities and vary by course. Students are provided some flexibility in selecting how they receive instruction, but all three modes of instruction are not available throughout the semester like the hyflex model. Students are not required to attend traditional class meetings on campus but may be required to attend remotely using Zoom.
