The two parts of this Project, “Medousa” and
“Ta Ftera tou Ermi”, have been designed to create on-line support services for the
Greek School Network.
Within the framework of the Odysseia Programme, the Medousa Sub-Project
focuses on the development of a Greek Network with teaching/education-oriented content,
and on facilitating the promotion, through the World Wide Web, of projects and activities
originating in the schools that are part of the Odysseia schools to be set up under
Projects like Odysseas, Tilemahos II, the Askoi tou Aiolou, etc. In addition, it has been
designed to be used by all Greek schools, and to facilitate the substantive use of the
World Wide Web.

methodology for both classroom and distance learning through the use of computer and
network technologies in the framework of the activities of the Pedagogical Institute’s Center for Distance Learning. It develops and supports processes for tele-training of teachers, it assembles and
