While Lincoln Land Community College recently celebrated its 50th anniversary as a college, another significant milestone anniversary is taking place this fall. This semester marks the 20th anniversary of online education at LLCC. English professor Lynn Pfannkuche (Faculty Emeriti) taught LLCC’s first online course, Introduction to Composition, during the fall 1997 semester. What started as a single faculty member with an innovative idea has grown into a robust program with offerings of nearly 500 online courses and over 90 faculty members teaching online each year. LLCC will be celebrating this pioneering milestone started by Professor Pfannkuche throughout the week of Nov. 12 with a series of videos available on the LLCC Facebook page. On Tuesday, Nov. 14, at noon, there will be a formal celebration in A. Lincoln Commons on the LLCC Springfield campus.
