Private Rooms under Teams

By Barbara Bray      January 28, 2010 -- 10:11 AM
When you set up your team in My eCoach for your coaching program, you can now assign subteams, or "Private Rooms," for confidential conversations with one or more of your members. This unique, coaching feature helps extend the meaning of one-on-one virtual coaching or mentoring. The only people that can have a private room are members of your team. The eCoach is the only one that can set up and add members to the private rooms.

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.
