My eCoach Facebook Share Place

By Barbara Bray      November 21, 2008 -- 03:13 PM
We set up a place in Facebook to promote projects, programs, or events that you may be doing in My eCoach. Why did we do this?

You are doing so many wonderful things in eCoach that people may not know about. We feature projects that have been reviewed and submitted to the eLibrary. We spotlight resources that have been shared in the eLibrary. We write about programs that eCoaches tell us about. The best way for us to share is if everyone shares. Facebook is a social networking program that encourages people to connect. We have some of these features but ours are different.

Class Teams in eCoach

By Barbara Bray      November 21, 2008 -- 10:47 AM
We are working tirelessly to meet your requests. The main request is to allow students into eCoach. We are setting up a program where teachers can become eTeachers and set up a class team with up to 40 spaces for your students. Students will have access to all of the features in eCoach as long as the class meets. Then students will become free members with limited access. We are reviewing costs, training, and coaching. We welcome your ideas and comments.
