New Text Editor in My eCoach

You probably will notice that we have a new text editor.

The old editor does not work with the latest version software that we use in My eCoach.

 

New Editor Tutorial

 

This new editor offers many of the same features that are in the current editor.

Use this quick guide  of new features to get a head start using our new editor.

For more detailed instructions refer to the New Editor Tutorial.

 

TYPING TEXT

Notice that text will appear with a space between the lines. It will become single spaced after you SAVE and then VIEW your project. If you want single spacing press RETURN while holdiing down the shift key.

 

INSERTING A URL

You can drag a URL to the editor and it will link it for you. (Highlight the entire URL first and then drag and drop into the editor.)

CREATING ANCHORS

Use the anchor icon to create a list of shortcuts at the top of a long page which link to areas of text.

 

ADDING QUOTES

Using the Add a Block Quote tool allows you to click on a paragraph,  indent it and make it a quote.

CUT AND PASTE tools now allow you to select text to cut, copy and paste. You can also paste as code or pasts from Word to remove the bad code.

FIND, REPLACE AND SPELL CHECK is now possible with the new editor tools.

DRAG AND DROP AN IMAGE

You can now drag and drop any image, (Just make sure you have rights to the that image.)

UPLOADING AN IMAGE

After clicking on the image icon you will need to go to the Upload tab, browse to find the image, THEN SEND IT TO THE SERVER. The info tab then opens and click Insert.

INSERT A VIDEO

Simply copy the link on the Internet and paste it into the editor. The video will automatically appear.

REMOVE FORMATTING


When you copy and paste text and it doesn't look correct, you can select the text and click the Remove Formatting icon.

ATTACHING A FILE

In your text, type the name you wish to give your file then highlight it. Select the LINK icon. SEARCH and locate your file. UPLOAD it to the server. Click OK. Your file will be linked/attached.

"I love to use My eCoach because it allows me to produce a very professional lesson plan. I share my work with other teachers at conferences and in my district. I work hard to develop strong lesson plans tied to Michigan content standards and it is important to me that my finished work looks good and reflects the amount of time and energy I have invested it. My eCoach tools are easy to use and I am proud of the results they produce.

In addition, My eCoach makes it easy to encourage other teachers trying to create lesson plans tied to their content standards. I am able to give them feedback through each step of the process. Even though they may be creating their first lesson plan, they are delighted with the resulting product. It empowers them to try other technology tools that are new to them.

I have used My eCoach for the past ten years. I have created lesson plans for a state level organization, as well as for the State Department of Education. In all that time, I have never seen another tool that can compare to the tools on My eCoach. In ease of use and in the product it produces, My eCoach provides the best tools available."
