Aviation remote learning

Aviation remote learning classroomLLCC Aviation transitioned to remote learning when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released a Special Guidance for FAR part 147 AMTS Regarding Training Interruptions Related to Coronavirus (COVID-19) memo on Monday, March 23 that opened up the option for distance learning. To figure out how to best serve students through remote learning, program staff explored various technologies LLCC has available to students and staff. After exploring and testing various technologies, the solution included:

  • Microsoft Teams as a virtual classroom so instructors can still interact with students as if they were in regular classroom.
  • Microsoft OneNote as a way to deliver any written or supplemental materials and email.

Figuring out how to deliver the material was just the first step. Then a proposal had to be developed for the FAA to sign off on. The proposal needed to have the delivery methods that would be utilized, how student interaction time would be documented and what courses were going to be affected. The proposal was submitted Monday morning, and approval was received late Monday. In a matter of a day’s time, before the first official day started, LLCC Aviation was able to get students up and running with Teams and OneNote.

Program staff are grateful for the opportunity to continue students’ education remotely. They thank Information Technology, Academic Innovation and eLearning and LLCC for the technology they have made available to our students and staff college-wide.
