    "Wow! I'm so impressed with the eCoach set-up. It made our 3 day principal training so much easier. The interface for the participants demonstrated how members of an online community could collaborate in a seamless fashion. All the participants are very excited about the continual support they will receive through their membership in eCoach. "
