Thorsteinsson, G.; Page, Tom

One of the aims of the Socrates Comenius 2.1 action is to prepare programmes, courses, strategies or teaching material for training the staff involved in education. In this respect, in the frame of the "FISTE--A Future Way For In-Service Teacher Training Across Europe" (118766-2004-RO-COMENIUS-C21) the on-line curse "Integrating ICT in Traditional Training" was produced, the main product of the project that presents methods for integrating face to face and web-based learning tools. The first version of the course was designed in English, followed by 5 national versions in Romanian, Spanish, Finnish, Icelandic and Latvian. The on-line course was offered to the initial and in-service teachers by using an e-learning environment--BSCW (Basic Support for Cooperative Work)--a platform which supports asynchronous and synchronous cooperation between different partners over the Internet. Having in view that the project partnership is coming from countries with different levels of ICT introduction in their educational systems, the initial evaluation of the group offered interesting aspects which could lead to drawing a specific profile. The paper tries to summarize part of the teachers' main answers and offer an image of the teachers who are interested in participating in on-line courses related to introduction of ICT in training.
