Furthermore, in cases where user behavior or actions are reported by other users or come to the attention of administrators, and such behavior or actions contravene the rules governing the proper use of the "e-me, European Edition" service (e.g., engaging in threatening or offensive behavior towards other users, attempting deception, misusing storage space, creating fraudulent accounts, etc.), the user's account will be deactivated, and the posted material will be deleted without prior notice.

Terms for proper use of student Hives on "e-me, European Edition"

Each student is required to accept the following terms of use when creating a Hive within the "e-me, European Edition":

  • I have informed my parent/guardian or a school educator about the Hive I am creating.
  • The title and description of my Hive do not contain inappropriate, unsuitable, or offensive words.
  • I will not send invitations to join my Hive to individuals I do not know personally.
  • If I wish to send invitations to individuals I do not know personally, I will first consider whether the invitation may bother them. If in doubt, I will seek the consent of my parent/guardian or a school educator.
  • I will respect other members! I will not share on the Hive’s wall or in the Hive’s shared files any photos or videos with inappropriate or offensive content.
  • I am responsible for the Hive I create! Therefore:
    • I will regularly check the Hive’s shared files, wall posts, and comments for any offensive or inappropriate content.
    • If I come across posts or comments with offensive content, I will delete them immediately or politely request the member who made the post or comment to delete it.
    • If a member consistently offends other members, I will remove them, delete the material they uploaded to the Hive’s shared files, and delete comments from the Hive’s wall.
  • I will convey these rules of good behavior to the Hive members to ensure mutual respect.
  • I understand that if I fail to comply with one or more of the above rules or if my behavior offends other members, the service administrators may, after informing me first, deactivate my Hive, thereby denying me access.

What is e-me?

Digital Educational Platform e-me is a collaborative, social and extendable Digital Educational Platform, a digital working and collaboration space for pupils and teachers.

e-me is a personal learning environment which supports:

  • creation of private and public collaboration spaces (hives) by teachers and pupils,
  • communication and social networking among pupils and teachers,
  • organization, storage and exchange of files on the cloud,
  • easy creation of digital interactive educational objects,
  • assigning and monitoring of tasks,
  • creation of e-portfolio for keeping selected personal achievements,
  • display of work via collaborative and personal blogs,
  • use of open educational resources from digital repositories,
  • while it further provides digital “tools” to support teaching and learning.

    e-me was initiated in Greece. It was designed and developed by “CTI DIOPHANTUS", the technical body of the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs (MoE). e-me is one of the two official platforms that is provided by the Greek Ministry of Education to all schools, teachers and pupils in Greece, as a national asynchronous learning platform.

    In Greece, e-me is available in two installations (editions): the official e-me (e-me.edu.gr), which is a closed system provided only to teachers and pupils with the use of their school accounts, and "e-me for all" edition (4all.e-me.edu.gr), which is open and free to everyone via registration.

    The current installation of e-me (e-me4all.eu) is the European edition of "e-me for all".

    European edition of "e-me" is open and free to anyone interested in Europe, schools, teachers, pupils, parents, academics, institutions, etc.

    It was customized in the context of the PAFSE project (PArtnerships For Science Education).

    The European edition of "e-me" expands use of Digital Educational Platform e-me in Europe.

News & Announcements

08/05/2023
  • e-me has been upgraded to version 3.2!

    The new version 3.2 of e-me incorporates a new hive app, as well as improvements and extensions to the functionality of the platform!

    Specifically:

    1. A new app, "e-me Library", has been developed and added to e-me.

    "e-me Library" is a hive app for storing and organizing reference material (e.g. books, study guides, course documents, multimedia reference materials, etc.) and making it available (read-only) to its members. The Hive Admin and Helpers are the ones eligible to post, edit, delete and organize the material.

    2. The hive wall now supports:

    • - "Likes" on posts and comments. Thus, you can express your appreciation to a post or comment by clicking/tapping on the "heart".
    • - copying and pasting posts to other hive walls, so you can easily share posts (repost) from one hive wall to another.
    • - drafts of posts or comments, ensuring that your content is temporarily saved and retrievable even if you leave the hive wall before publishing it.
    • - limited "pinned" posts, leading to improved performance (loading without delay)

    3. The "e-me assignment app" now supports:

    • - advance time-scheduling options, allowing you to define when the description of an assignment will become visible to students. You can now hide your exam questions until the day and time of the exam.

    4. The "e-me content app" now supports:

    • - additional types of interactive learning resources (Structure Strip, AR Scavenger, Cornell Notes, Information Wall) offering a wider range of options for digital educational content development.

    5. The landing and infographic pages currently offer improved presentation of information.

    We hope that these improvements and additions will facilitate your educational work, and we look forward to receiving your comments and insights for future versions of e-me!

12/09/2022
  • e-me has been upgraded to version 3.1!

    The new version 3.1 of e-me incorporates significant improvements and extensions to its functionality, as well as new applications!

    Specifically, in e-me assignments:

    • - the Hive Leader can assign to Hive Assistants the right to assign tasks to members of the hive. This extension facilitates the assignment management process and will be particularly useful in cases where the Hive is used for class/school collaboration (e.g. in projects) and co-teaching of courses by two or more teachers.

    In e-me blogs:

    • - videos which are hosted on the Panhellenic School Network video service (https://video.sch.gr) can be embedded in blog posts and pages.

    • - files of the Glossomatheia software (.psc) can be uploaded on blogs, as well as on the Hive Wall, Files, e-portfolio and e-me assignments.

    • - protection against spam content is enhanced via an advanced anti-spam control mechanism that detects and clears spam comments from blogs.

    The new version 3.1 of e-me is also enriched with two user-friendly design tools:

    • - the new e-me draw app, which enables you to create, format and share various types of diagrams (flow charts, organizational charts, sequence diagrams, graphs and more). Take advantage of the app’s multiple features and rich library of diagrams and images to organize and visualize information and processes.

    • - the new e-me mindmaps app, which allows you to easily design, format and share your own mind maps, presenting information either verbally, visually or as a word-image combination in a hierarchically structured way.

    We hope that the improvements, extensions and new apps in version 3.1 will enhance your daily educational practices, and we look forward to receiving your feedback and suggestions for future versions of e-me!

    We wish you a happy and creative school year!
