What is e-me?

The e-me Digital Educational Platform for pupils and teachers, implements a safe integrated digital environment for learning, collaboration, communication and networking of all members of the school community.

e-me was created to become:

  • the personal working environment for every pupil and teacher
  • a safe place for collaboration, communication, sharing of files and utilization of digital content
  • a space for the social networking of pupils and teachers
  • a framework for the integration and operation of external apps
  • a space where the work of pupils, teachers and schools can be made public and showcased

e-me editions

The main, official edition of e-me Digital Educational Platform, which is directed to all students and teachers and - compared to the other editions - has the most recent and complete functionality of e-me.
ONLY users with a Greek School Network (GSN) account can access the official edition of e-me, assuring this way that all the users are certified.
In the official edition of e-me we also provide user support as well as other services that have been referred previously.
By using the official edition of e-me you find yourself in a safe environment where you can cooperate with other certified users from the educational community.

https://e-me.edu.gr

"e-me for all" is directed to everyone who wishes to use the e-me Digital Educational Platform but doesn't have or wants to use a Greek School Network (GSN) account.
It is free and open to everyone: students, teachers, researchers, educators, public and private sector personnel, and others. Access to the platform is given through user registration. "e-me for all" has the same functionality as the official e-me, but it doesn't provide the same level of security as its users are not certified. Moreover, it doesn't provide equivalent services and user support, like the ones offered by the official edition of e-me.

Questions about the use of e-me platform

Hives

1. What is a Hive and what is it for?

A Hive is the main co-working environment of students and teachers. It has members, a main channel of communication among its members ("Wall"), a working space, shared files, apps and an admin.

A Hive is created by/ addresses a "team" of e-me members who cooperate around a certain topic. Such "teams" could be:

- A class (e.g. B2 class)

- A class for a specific course (e.g. B2 Physics class)

- A club of particular interest (e.g. Photography club)

- A group of students of the same or different classes who cooperate on a project

- A group of students on a neighborhood who cooperate on a local activity (e.g. Recycling in the neighborhood)

- An entire school grade (e.g. Third grade of Middle School consisting of many classes)

- A cooperative project between two schools

2. How can I become Hive member?

To become Hive member do the following:

- Look for a public Hive and send a participation request to its admin (as long as this Hive's settings permit it). As soon as admin approves your request, you become a member.

- Accept the invitation request a Hive admin sends you.

3. How can I leave a Hive?

To leave a Hive, go to public Hives list, select "Edit" and then "Leave".

4. How can I invite members to a Hive that I created?

Select "Members" and then "Members Invitation" (tab) and invite:

- A contact of yours

- Any e-me user that you can find by their username

- Members of other Hives for which you're admin. To do so, select "Hive's Members" (tab) to see the list of Hives. Then, choose a Hive and select members.

5. I am a student. Can I create a Hive and invite my classmates to become members?

Yes, students can create Hives and become Hive admins. For your classmates to become Hive members, they will have to accept your invitation.

6. I am a student. Can I invite my friends from another school to become members of the Hive I created?

Yes, you can, as long as they have an e-me account. Additionally, you need to know their usernames in e-me to invite them.

7. I am a teacher and want to create a Hive for one of my classes. Are there any ready - made class student lists so as to send massive invitations?

No. This service is not available for now.

However, you can adjust your own, already used member lists (e.g. students of a class) to send invitations for the Hives you create.

For example, once you create a Hive for a class, you need to send invitation to every student separately so that they become Hive members. In every other Hive you create, you can insert the member list from the Hive mentioned above or any other Hive you have created, adjust this member list by adding or deleting members and then send invitations.

8. Is there a way for a Hive, I create, not to appear in the search engine results?

Yes, you can choose to create a private Hive.

9. What do Hive assistants do?

Hive assistants support Hive admins in managing wall posts (and blog posts). Hive admins can set as many members as they choose to be assistants. To become assistant Hive member has to accept the request.

10. A Hive member has made an insulting Hive wall post. What can I do?

You can report an insulting Hive wall post or comment. The report goes to Hive admin and assistants, who are in charge to deal with it. Once a post or comment is reported three times, it gets immediately withdrawn from Hive wall and remains visible only to admin and assistants.

11. Can I share files with Hive members?

In every Hive there is a folder "{Hive name}_shared", which is accessible by all Hive members who can edit and delete it. In this folder you can upload the file you want to share with other Hive members. Keep, though, in mind that other Hive members can edit or even delete the file you uploaded. Tip: When sharing file, which you don't want to lose, you'd better keep copy of it in your personal e-me file storage.

Customization of e-me environment

12. Can I customize the platform's appearance and my profile?

In your profile page you can choose your profile photo, type your 'moto' and a short description about you. Also, if you go to "Settings", you can choose e-me main theme, background image, fonts.

13. Can I rearrange the apps' order in e-me home page?

Yes, you can. Choose "Edit" and rearrange apps' order. Also, you can create a new apps folder by dragging one app on top of the other and by renaming the new folder. Later on you can add more apps in this folder or withdraw apps from the folder. If a folder gets empty it is immediately deleted.

To add an e-me member to your contacts go to their public profile page (see next question) and send an "Add Request" (the member will have to accept it).

15. How can I see the public profile of an e-me member?

To be able to see an e-me member's public profile go to "Contacts".

e-me blogs

18. Can I change name and URL of a Hive blog for which I am admin?

When a Hive blog is created, it’s name is given automatically by Hive (Hive’s blog name = Hive’s name). Hive’s blog URL is created by the Hive’s slug with the prefix "hive-" added. For example, Hive’s blog URL for Hive with slug "test" will be: https://blogs.e-me.edu.gr/hive-test.

According to e-me security specifications only Hive’s name (and not Hive’s slug) is allowed to be changed. Subsequently only Hive’s blog name (and not Hive’s blog URL) is allowed to be changed.

20. Can I move another WordPress blog I created to e-me blogs?

Yes, you can import a copy of any blog either to your personal blog or to any of Hive blogs for which you’re admin. First you need to enable the "WordPress Importer" plugin from the "Add-ons" page.

22. How much personal storage space do teachers and students have available?

Each teacher or student can use an up to 2 GB storage space. This storage capacity includes the Hive files created by each e-me member.

23. How can I sync my files between my devices (desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet)?

You can use the sync file apps. You can easily access the corresponding setup files through "Files" app (“INSTALLATION OF SYNC FILE APPS” option at the bottom left side of your screen).
