GODFREY – Lewis and Clark Community College students can now attend classes online or in-person – or a little bit of both – with nearly 40 Blendflex sections being offered this spring.
Blendflex courses offer the flexibility of face-to-face and virtual synchronous learning options within the same course, so a student can choose to attend in person one week and learn from home in their pajamas the next.
“We believe Blendflex classes will be very appealing to students, allow them a great deal of flexibility, and improve overall success,” said Dean of Liberal Arts, Business and Information Technology Michael Sundblad. “Accessibility and success are top priorities for the college. The introduction of this mode is a step in that direction.”

The college first debuted Blendflex in Spring 2021.
L&C President Ken Trzaska had positive experiences with Blendflex courses at his former institution, Seward County Community College in Liberal, Kansas, and was instrumental in adapting the model at Lewis and Clark.
“This mode provides equity and accessibility for students dealing with technology, transportation, childcare, employment and other issues based on immediate needs,” Trzaska said.
