Safe, Secure, and Personalized Online Environment

The My eCoach platform provides a safe venue for students, individuals and groups to work, communicate and collaborate. My eCoach:
  • is a closed environment
  • staff monitors the My eCoach community
  • eCoaches monitor public behavior
  • members can block mail recipients in message center
  • members can report abuse and/or inappropriate behaviors to eCoaches
  • class teams must have on file an Acceptable Use Policy for appropriate behavior
  • member pages are advertisement free so students stay within My eCoach
Proprietary and confidential information is safe and is secure in the My eCoach platform because:
  • unlike other websites, you own all of the information you put into your projects and can move them with you from team to team
  • you can store your resources and projects in your digital locker and will always maintain access to it
  • you have the option to make your projects and conversations secure, such as in chats, calendars, forums, surveys, quizzes, and other projects
The My eCoach platform is further customizable so you can personalize your projects and settings to suit your needs. This can be done in the settings option of your profile, message center, friends, and within your projects.

Here is an example of the preference options within the Universal Builder:


Here is an example of a list of safe, team blogs for a class team:


 
"I used My eCoach for a few years as my classroom website and for surveys and quizzes.

Two years ago, the district asked us to learn to use moodle because it is linked to student's grades, etc... At first, the moodle class page was separate, but needed to be accessed by student username and password. Many students forgot passwords or changed them or couldn't get on because of other reasons. This year there is a link within the students portal site to a moodle classroom page. (They still need their username and password.) This link was not to the webpage I had made earlier, but to a new one. I switched all the information over to the new because I was told the parents would be able to access it from their portal site, also. This was not true. I then switched back to My eCoach and found it so easy to use!

The parents and students both can keep up with assignments because they do not need to remember passwords! This past week, I put together an online test in portal-moodle because I was told it would grade the test and link the grade to my gradebook. What a disaster! The transferred grade was not correct and I am dealing with many e-mails from students who could not submit their finished tests. I believe I will try the on-line quiz in My eCoach next time and just copy over the grade.

I am still only using a small portion of what is available in ecoach, but am looking forward to trying all the new things that Barbara and her team have developed over the past year or so."
