just launched our new team tools, making team management and navigation
so much simpler for the both the team member and team manager. Click on the play button below watch a short video on how this team tool can work for you (you may need to turn up your speakers).
Teams will soon be able to co-author, share, communicate and collaborate with other teams in a new feature in My eCoach: Lounges!
instance, this would allow an elementary class in North Dakota to
compare data with a class in Hawaii on the different effects of climate
change. Teams will also be able to use the lounge to work on lesson
plans together, co-author projects, and optimize their communication
between one or more teams. Stay tuned!!! more...

We’ve been busy updating and streamlining our inside member pages. Once you login as a member, you will notice:
We have new icons for our home page and our left hand navigation bar.
There are new color choices for your "look and feel" under your settings.
We also changed our navigation bar on top to have more links and information. Some of these links will take you to a new window to the outside non-member pages where you can view examples, read updated FAQs, and learn more about the numerous features and tools of My eCoach.
