"I use My eCoach for one of my main sources of communication for my students and families. Pinellas County, FL is required to use Moodle. This is a tool that is primarily meant for the students as a teaching tool, and a way to gather grades. Ultimately, these results are intended to transfer into our on-line grading system (Portal). I have taken the on-line training provided to do this; however, I do not have the time in the day or the confidence to try this without having a core group of teachers to reflect and share results with.

At this point, the combination of Moodle and Portal are so new that there is a minimal amount of teachers that can & do use Moodle/Portal effectively. My eCoach provides this support system for me. I am confident that I can inquire with anyone on my team, or Barbara Bray & I know I will get the support I need."
