WINGsReality EDU is now bringing distance students into the live Private Pilot Ground School classroom via the internet. Starting Sept. 8, both online and local students can work together in the same classroom.
Students attend live weekly classes, and continue working throughout the week on assignments, quizzes, mid-term exams, and projects in the WINGsReality EDU Learning Management System-based website.
Local and distance students also have opportunities to collaborate on group projects, and report results back to the class.
All WINGsReality EDU courses are Learning Management System (LMS) based, so students have access to admissions functions, gradebooks, transcripts, and more.
The class is taught by Michael Lessard (CFII/MEI), who uses scenario-based examples to explain real world flying. He teaches about the aeronautical decision making process, and explains practical strategies to avoid getting into hazardous situations.
The Hangar Hangout is a social network built into the site so students and alumni can communicate, contribute interesting resources, work through challenging academic aspects, or just chat.
