Do You Use Your Dashboard?

STARLINK has a valuable tool that you could be using; it is your own personal dashboard. The dashboard provides valuable feedback in the simplest of form. It is easy to access and consequently, is available for your benefit.

As a participant, your dashboard collects your performance and monitors your status. Look for it after logging into your account. It's on the front page of the "member area". It is also found within every STARLINK 

course you are enrolled in. 


Sounds interesting! Let's get started. Log into your STARLINK account and visit the member area. Click on the icon that looks like a speedometer.
