"My eCoach sets the standard for online teacher communities. In addition to having tools and tutorials to help teachers create web-based, standards aligned-lessons and activities, there are forum's surveys and libraries.

Being able to quickly embed content such as videos in a lesson is extremely helpful. Teachers don't have a lot of time so having all of these high quality tools integrated in one place is the way to go."
