Safe, Secure, and Personalized Online Environment

The My eCoach platform provides a safe venue for students, individuals and groups to work, communicate and collaborate. My eCoach:
  • is a closed environment
  • staff monitors the My eCoach community
  • eCoaches monitor public behavior
  • members can block mail recipients in message center
  • members can report abuse and/or inappropriate behaviors to eCoaches
  • class teams must have on file an Acceptable Use Policy for appropriate behavior
  • member pages are advertisement free so students stay within My eCoach
Proprietary and confidential information is safe and is secure in the My eCoach platform because:
  • unlike other websites, you own all of the information you put into your projects and can move them with you from team to team
  • you can store your resources and projects in your digital locker and will always maintain access to it
  • you have the option to make your projects and conversations secure, such as in chats, calendars, forums, surveys, quizzes, and other projects
The My eCoach platform is further customizable so you can personalize your projects and settings to suit your needs. This can be done in the settings option of your profile, message center, friends, and within your projects.

Here is an example of the preference options within the Universal Builder:


Here is an example of a list of safe, team blogs for a class team:


 
"Research has borne out the potential for Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) as an aid to educators in support of each other, and, to improve the teaching and learning environment by modeling the self-organization and self-determination that are hallmarks of independent, lifelong learners. These characteristics help to reinforce the idea that everyone at school is both a teacher and a learner. My eCoach is the best tool of which I am aware that can support these self-organized, peer-learning groups.

Without question, My eCoach is a one-of-a-kind innovation that similar Open Source tools find difficult to approximate generally because there does not exist the same level of customer service. What My eCoach has made unique, no other has come close to creating the kind of safe, scaffolding environment of this system. Although a proprietary system, My eCoach is an "open environment" with the ability to integrate other school and district tools including Open Source tools."
