DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - Eastern Iowa Community Colleges on Monday said fall face-to-face classes will begin Aug. 24 at its Clinton, Muscatine, and Scott campuses.

To provide students with even greater choices in planning their education, the college is offering:

  • Classroom Plus – Face-to-face classes with reduced class sizes to ensure proper distancing between students. Faculty also will have access to additional technologies to enrich the classroom experience for their students.
  • Live Online – Synchronous classes using Zoom technology and Canvas, the college’s online learning platform, allowing students the ability to study from home. This provides the structure of scheduled face-to-face classes with a live instructor and interaction with fellow classmates.
  • Online Anytime – Traditional online classes delivered through a long-standing partnership with other community colleges around the state. The college regularly enrolls more than 1,000 students in online classes each semester.

“Eastern Iowa Community Colleges has long been a critical resource in the education of area students and the economic vitality of the region.” The college said in a media release. “It will continue to fulfill that mission in the coming academic year while providing students with a safe and healthy environment. In addition to reduced class sizes to ensure social distancing, the college will require everyone to wear masks and regularly clean rooms and labs.”
