We created the first online ground school for pilots in Malawi. Our aim is that students can access the theoretical training from the comfort of their home, on the go and at their convenience. The Eastrise online ground school can be taken separately on in conjunction with the on-campus ground school based on a student’s subscription. To access the Eastrise Aviation online ground school, you must login to your student account first. Here is how: Click the login avatar on the Eastrise Aviation website to reveal the login form.
Once the login form splashes, enter your credentials (either your username or email) and click the LOGIN button. You will be redirected to your profile page when successful.
Here is how your profile page looks like. You can see that there are tabs that you can click to among others see the courses that you have enrolled, the certificates that you have been awarded, your online order details, results, and your wishlist. You will also find the Settings tab which you can click to change your password, change your display name and to add your avatar – your profile (display) picture.
You may then click the anchor links for the course that you want to access. The system will then redirect you to the learning interface.
UPLOADING A PROFILE PICTURE
We recommend you upload a high-resolution profile picture so that your student account is complete. Here is how you can do just that: On your profile page, first click the Settings tab and then the Avatar tab.
When the window opens, click the upload button to select and upload your profile picture. Once done, you can reposition it accordingly by dragging it with your mouse. When you are satisfied, click the SAVE CHANGES button. You will see a notification when the action is successful.
ACCESSING THE ONLINE LEARNING PORTAL
We discussed in brief in the preceding paragraphs how you can access the Eastrise online learning portal — the classes. Let us have a quick recap on how to access the online courses:
- Login to your Eastrise Account
- From the MY PROFILE page where you are redirected, click your course
- Click the Curriculum tab to access the lessons (as shown in the image below)
You can also click the COURSES menu link on the main website and you will be able to access the courses — of course you must be logged in. Below is the window that opens when you click the Lecture link to access the learning Units in a course.
When you reach the end of a page, you will see two button links: COMPLETE and FINISH COURSE respectively. To mark the course as complete, click the COMPLETE button. You will be redirected to the next unit in the same course. When you click FINISH COURSE, you will exit and the system will mark that you have completed the course. Do not click the Finish Course button unless you have completed the whole module in that course. A green tick will appear next to the units (lecures) to show that you have completed that particular unit. See the image below.
DOWNLOADING YOUR CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION
We incorporated a feature that enables students to download certificates when they complete a course. This was a suggestion from students during the testing phase of the online ground school. Please note that these are not academic certificates and cannot be used to apply for a job or to indicate proficiency in any area. They are just for fun if you like. Just for personal records. A student must complete a course and pass the end of module quiz to be able to download the certificate of completion. The button link is available after a student completes a course and looks like the one in the image above.
