Brief outline of the project
The Askoi tou Aiolou Project was
designed to set up and support the operation of a panhellenic network of school computer
labs (from the Mnistires and
Odysseas Projects) linking 379 schools
(selected by the Ministry of Education) in 29 prefectures.
The Panhellenic School Network created hubs in 29 prefectures.
These are installed in premises operated by the Hellenic Telecommunications Organization,
which provides the necessary circuits for linking the hubs. Internet access is supplied
through the National Research and Technology Network.
|The Panhellenic School Network
is providing network services to every work station in the Odysseia school computer labs,
examples of which include:
- "User-friendly" multimedia e-mail
- Bulletin boards, discussion lists
- Thematic libraries hosted by the hubs and shared by all the schools
- Access to educational software, for shared use by students in remote schools
- Possibility for students to create their own presentations on subjects they are
interested in and publish them for all to share.
- Encouragement of on-line participation in distance seminars, discussions and lectures
though audio-visual media.
- Exploration of mechanisms for filtering access to undesirable Internet sites.
In addition to the Odysseia schools, the Panhellenic School Network
is providing Internet access to all schools in every prefecture.
