Fundação Bradesco Escola Virtual
From Researching Virtual Initiatives in Education
Dedicated to offering distance learning courses - Internet-based and "semi-presential" segments of Basic Education, Training and Youth and Adult Education, this portal for e-learning is available to students and alumni, educators and staff of Bradesco Foundation, as well as people in the community and unemployed people who wish to obtain a new qualification or retraining for work.
The Virtual School portal has the capacity to serve up to 150,000 students. It was developed from a concept of mediation pedagogy that values the interaction and collaboration of students through synchronous and asynchronous tools, "virtual campus" conferences online, exercises online, chat room and forum.
