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:
