Definitions and tasks

For each country participating in Inspire there are between one to three National Coordinators (NCs). National Coordinators will act as points of contact for the pilot schools and provide help and support during the implementation of the activities for the Inspire project.

National Coordinators' tasks include:

  • Assisting the pilot schools
  • Encouraging the pilot schools to use, test and evaluate as many learning objects as possible
  • Controlling pilot schools' reporting
  • Collecting the reports provided by the pilot schools
  • Uploading comments from teachers to the "discussion pages" of the learning objects in the English language website
  • Monitoring comments from teachers in the "discussion pages" of the websites in other languages

The list of National Coordinators is available in the Inspire Contacts section.

All National Coordinators will be given a user account for the Mediawiki, and will be able to modify the "non-protected" pages of the Inspire websites.

How to use MediaWiki?

To modify the Inspire website, you need to log in using your username and password. When you log in for the first time, the program will ask you to change your password.

Creating pages

To create new pages, search a page you want to create (write the name of the new page in the "search" box in the menu on the left-hand side). Select edit page when it says that the page doesn't exist yet.

Editing pages

To edit an existing page, select edit in the upper or right side menu, and modify the text. You can see your changes by selecting show preview from the bottom of the page. To save and publish your changes, select save page.
