Check out Some eCoaching Tools
By Barbara Bray May 20, 2010 -- 08:59 AM
My eCoach offers lots of tools and many of them are not as conspicuous
for members. If you are on a team and have an eCoach, your eCoach can
provide you ongoing feedback and support to help you meet your learning
Plans (ILPs) Members can create an ILP about a specific goal.
The power of the ILPs are how they are interactive and allow feedback. ILPs were created to put in one goal with
where you are currently and where you want to be by a specific time. You
can add 5 steps and concerns. To know if you are doing this right, you
can request for feedback from your eCoach. The comments and replies are private
between you and your eCoach. You receive an email notification when you
receive a new comment or reply. You can also create a private ILP
reflection as a blog and invite your eCoach to participate. You can
upload files, images, videos and more to share with your eCoach. We
created this interactive feature because so many members had questions
about their goals and how to meet them. Just printing out an ILP was not
Feedback The same feature is on each page in the edit view of
the Universal Builder. When you create a project, you can get feedback
from your eCoach and then reply to the comments. Same as the ILP, all
comments and replies are private and you receive an email notification.
You also have a notification on your recent activities that a comment is
waiting for you. Another eCoaching feature are the Author
Notes. If you have more than one author, you can keep notes on each page
and they only appear in the edit view.
Invite your eCoach or
other members to review your project. In edit mode, go to Submit to
eLibrary. Click Invite eCoach or others to review
Your eCoach or others will receive an
email notification and notice on their home page that they are invited
to provide a review, approve, or provide some suggestions.
are just a few of the eCoaching tools in My eCoach. The most important
piece is that you donít have to be alone and can get the support you
need if you are part of a team with an eCoach you trust.
