"My eCoach has proved to be a simple and easy to use resource for designing websites for various lesson topics. Before I was introduced to My eCoach, I had no prior knowledge on how to design a website. Now that I have a membership to it, I know that I can quickly log-on to design a website where I can post resources, weblinks, documents, images, video/audio samples, etc.

My students have greatly enjoyed working on the websites that I’ve created (little do they know how easily I was able to make them because of the "Clone this" feature). They especially appreciate the fact that they can leave comments on the pages. And what’s great is that I can monitor each of the comments before I allow them to be published."
