Cost-Effective Professional Development On-site and Online

My eCoach provides professional development on-site and online. Successful professional development needs to be ongoing, sustainable, and cost-effective. One shot workshops do not work. The best way to do be effective is to create an online community with eCoaching that supports organization’s goals. eCoaching helps you get better at whatever you do and guides individuals and organizations towards realizing specific goals and shared visions:
  • through online training, facilitation and support
  • using My eCoach and/or outside programs
  • in an effective and sustainable, train-the-trainer model
We help organizations determine their goals, refine expectations, find strengths of each member, choose the appropriate people from their organization to be eCoaches, design an effective and sustainable program to reach those goals, and train and support the eCoaches in implementing their program. Every person and program is unique. Our Certificated eCoaches provide training for coaches and mentors at your site or ours and supports them virtually while they facilitate their teams.

Here is an example of a team page as the starting point for team members to get information and resources.


eCoaches have multiple eCoaching and reporting tools. Here is an example of the individual learning plan where eCoaches can provide input using eCoach comments:


"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."
