What the Participants and Media are saying about eCOACH Online Learning:
“I just wanted to thank you for a great webinar. I was so impressed with your expertise and your ease in conducting the course (and you were so gracious to me, as well). I look forward to the advanced Prezi course. Have a great summer!” ~ Gianna Russo, Instructor of English, University Campus.
“I truly loved the presenter and presentation! I thought I would walk away feeling overwhelmed because the amount of content that would be provided and because the presenter would just touch on each section not allowing for note taking…boy was I wrong! The presenter did an amazing job of covering the content at an appropriate speed and provided just the right amount of information to keep you interested. I also thought I would have an enormous amount of note taking to do, but I was wrong again. All of the slides that were covered in the presentation was provided to us along with other content that was covered. The content being supplied to us after the presentation allowed me to truly focus and listen to every word that was being said instead of trying to do some fast note taking (which is awesome because I do not know shorthand!)” ~ Staci Brooks, Junior, Psychology, Center for Online Learning.
