Information Technologist (IT) Instructional Designer
My eCoach was first introduced to me by my Instructional Technology professor, Dr. Peggy Benton at San Francisco State University. It provided a simple interface to make web pages, ideal for quick projects/workshops. I found that I had more time to concentrate on content rather than fiddling with web development software.
I was able to include some advanced features into the project using Web 2.0 services such as VoiceThread, Weebly, embedded flash videos, and custom html without issues. One particular feature of the project that I enjoyed making was the flowchart. The graphic was created in Lucidcharts, imported into Adobe Fireworks to create a HTML Hotspot Map, make it click-able and then integrate the html into My eCoach effortlessly without any coding or headache in probably less than 20 minutes.
With the extra time my classmate, Becky Wong, and I were able to create more meaningful instructional content, graphics, and an overall well structured curriculum for the workshop. The results were a success, and we all felt that the students benefited from the interactive elements and resourcefulness of a web-based instruction over paper instruction.
