My eCoach Web 2.0 Tools and Embed other Web 2.0 Tools into My eCoach

Web 2.0 refers to the second generation of web development and design that facilitates collaboration, communication, user-centered design and information sharing through the Internet like on social networking and video-sharing sites. Currently there are many Web 2.0 tools available, but only My eCoach provides the tools, resources, community, coaching and support together.

Members can use My eCoach’s Web 2.0 tools to:
  • communicate with one another in both private and public venues
  • share video and audio files, documents, projects and resources
  • collaborate on projects
  • clone projects from one another
  • co-author projects
  • integrate and embed other Web 2.0 tools and programs
Many other Web 2.0 tools claim to be useful and free, but they have hidden monthly fees for basic usage, own all of your posted materials, do not offer any support, do not have private discussion areas, and do not integrate resources, projects, or builders. You can embed other Web 2.0 tools into the embed box in the Universal Builder and, if you are a team manager, in the team tools.

"I used My eCoach for a few years as my classroom website and for surveys and quizzes.

Two years ago, the district asked us to learn to use moodle because it is linked to student's grades, etc... At first, the moodle class page was separate, but needed to be accessed by student username and password. Many students forgot passwords or changed them or couldn't get on because of other reasons. This year there is a link within the students portal site to a moodle classroom page. (They still need their username and password.) This link was not to the webpage I had made earlier, but to a new one. I switched all the information over to the new because I was told the parents would be able to access it from their portal site, also. This was not true. I then switched back to My eCoach and found it so easy to use!

The parents and students both can keep up with assignments because they do not need to remember passwords! This past week, I put together an online test in portal-moodle because I was told it would grade the test and link the grade to my gradebook. What a disaster! The transferred grade was not correct and I am dealing with many e-mails from students who could not submit their finished tests. I believe I will try the on-line quiz in My eCoach next time and just copy over the grade.

I am still only using a small portion of what is available in ecoach, but am looking forward to trying all the new things that Barbara and her team have developed over the past year or so."
