Guide to the Platform – User’s Roadmap


Welcome to the Cyberbullying Peer Ambassadors Network Platform, where we strive to foster a supportive community dedicated to combating cyberbullying and promoting positive change worldwide. If you’re new here, allow us to illuminate the workings and offerings of this platform.

Our Platform serves as a dynamic hub for addressing pressing issues like cyberbullying, bullying, and an array of other topics spanning Education, Sustainability, Health, and more. We’re thrilled to introduce you to this digital space and encourage your participation in our mission for a better world.

The Ambassadors Network Platform offers a wealth of resources and functionalities designed to empower its users. From the Network, Services, Forum, to Resources sections, we provide a comprehensive suite of features tailored to meet diverse needs and interests. Whether you’re seeking support, information, or opportunities for advocacy, our platform aims to be your go-to destination. One of the distinguishing features of our Platform is its inclusivity. With support for multiple languages including English, Romanian, Italian, Croatian, Macedonian, and Albanian, we strive to ensure accessibility for users worldwide. So, let’s embark on a journey through the platform together, exploring its offerings and uncovering how it operates. Join us as we navigate this digital landscape with a shared vision for positive change.

Home Page – also known as the First or Main Page, you’ll find a comprehensive array of information options, features, menus, and everything you need to navigate the platform. This is your starting point for exploring all that the platform has to offer.

At the top of the page, you’ll find the Header, housing the Menu, which contains all the pages and categories available on the platform. Each button in the Menu directs you to a different page, option, or category. Additionally, on the right side of the Header, you’ll find the Search and Log In button. Clicking the Log In button allows you to either log in to the platform or register as a new user, conveniently accessible from the same button.

Just above the Header, you’ll notice a row of Flags, representing the six languages in which the platform is translated. These flags not only signify language options but also symbolize the countries involved in CPAN Project which is an Erasmus + project. By clicking on one of the flags, the platform automatically translates into the language corresponding to the selected flag or country.

Moving on to the main body of the Home Page, you’ll find general information, various categories to explore, and the latest profiles of ambassadors (more about them later in this guide).

Towards the bottom of the Home Page, you’ll discover quick links, contact information, and social media links. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to subscribe to the Newsletter, ensuring you stay updated on platform news and events.

Before proceeding to the next page or menu, let’s explore the option to register on the platform. Registering is a simple process that can be accessed through the person icon located near the search circle on a computer or via the header on a mobile device.

As mentioned earlier, clicking the button with the person icon will redirect you to the Log In page. Here, you’ll find fields for entering your Username or Email Address and Password. If you’re not already registered, below these fields you’ll see the word “Register,” which provides the option to register for the platform. The registration process is straightforward: simply click on “Register,” enter your desired username and email address, and then click on “Register” again.

If you prefer to view the content in a language that you’re more comfortable with, you can easily switch to it. Simply navigate to the language options in the drop-down menu, select your preferred language, and then click on the ‘Change’ button. The website will automatically update and display the content in the language you’ve chosen.

After completing this step, you’ll receive an email from the server containing instructions for setting up your password. It’s important to remember your password, as you’ll need it each time you wish to log in to the platform.

Once you’re logged in, you’ll gain access to various features that allow you to contribute to the platform, which will be elaborated on later in this guide.

Navigating through the blog page, visitors will notice several helpful tools situated on the right side of the screen. The search box allows users to easily locate a specific post by entering keywords or phrases. Additionally, the Archives box enables users to filter posts based on the month of publication. For instance, if a user recall reading a post in November and wishes to revisit it, they can simply select November from the Archives filter to view all posts published during that month.

Below these tools, users will find a list of categories encompassing a wide range of topics. Presently, the available categories include Articles, Bullying, Cyberbullying, Education, Environment, Health, Helping, Project activities, and Sustainability. Each category contains posts and articles that delve into pertinent issues and discussions relevant to its respective theme.

Whether you’re seeking insights on education, health, sustainability, or other pressing matters, the Services section provides a space for users to engage with informative and thought-provoking content.

This dedicated page is designed for individuals who aspire to become Ambassadors and enact positive change within society. Currently, there are four distinct options or topics available for aspiring Ambassadors to choose from. These options are presented within four distinct boxes, each containing detailed explanations of the respective topic and the role an Ambassador would undertake.

Upon clicking on one of these boxes, users are seamlessly redirected to the specific topic they have chosen. Here, they can explore comprehensive details outlining the purpose, objectives, and responsibilities associated with their selected topic. The same user-friendly navigation applies to the remaining topics, ensuring that users can thoroughly acquaint themselves with all available options before deciding to apply for Ambassadorship.

This allows prospective Ambassadors to gain a deeper understanding of the commitments involved and make an informed decision that aligns with their interests and passions.

Directly beneath the boxes containing the topic options, users will find a simple form awaiting completion. This form serves as the initial step in the Ambassador application process. Once submitted, our team will carefully review the form. If all necessary information is provided and meets our criteria, your profile will be promptly published.

Once your profile is created and published, it will be prominently displayed within the “Ambassadors Network” section, as mentioned earlier. This ensures that your contributions and dedication to positive change are recognized and accessible to the broader community.

The Forum serves as an invaluable avenue for active engagement within the platform. Its primary objective is to foster meaningful discussions among users, particularly focusing on pertinent topics such as cyberbullying and bullying. However, the Forum isn’t limited to these subjects; users are encouraged to initiate discussions on a wide range of topics, thereby enriching the platform with diverse perspectives and insights.

To fully participate and contribute to the Forum, users are required to complete the registration process, as mentioned earlier. However, even without registration, users still have the ability to view posts and comments, allowing them to benefit from the wealth of knowledge and discourse shared within the Forum.

The Forum provides a space where young people can voice their opinions, share experiences, and engage in constructive dialogue on issues that matter to them. It serves as a platform for mutual support, empowerment, and advocacy, empowering users to make a positive impact within their communities and beyond. Whether you’re seeking advice, sharing stories, or simply connecting with like-minded individuals, the Forum offers a welcoming environment for meaningful interaction and collaboration.

If you’re a teacher, youth worker, or educator seeking a wealth of non-formal tools and activities, you’ve come to the right place.

Within this virtual library, users can explore a diverse range of materials, meticulously organized to facilitate easy navigation and access. Each resource is accompanied by detailed information, providing insights into its content, format, and author. Additionally, users have the opportunity to download any additional external files associated with the resource, enhancing their learning experience.

Furthermore, the Resources section encourages active participation and collaboration from users. Whether you’re looking to share your own resources or contribute additional files, you’re welcome to do so.

Overall, the Resources section serves as a hub of learning and collaboration, providing valuable resources and fostering a community of educators dedicated to enhancing educational experiences for all.

Within this page, users will find essential contact information for both the project coordinator and the platform administrators. Whether you have questions, concerns, or simply wish to reach out, this section provides the means to do so conveniently.
