The pace of innovation and introduction of new delivery models of teaching and learning are rapidly transforming the traditional education system and Brazil is no exception. This is a country with huge educational opportunities and at Blackboard we are fully committed to partnering with institutions to offer their learners innovative solutions that are based on meeting their needs and improving their experience.

With an impressive 100 percent growth in the country over the past year, Blackboard is showing a strong momentum in Brazil and it now supports more than 1 million students and faculty members at over 70 institutions. Moreover, with our extended presence in São Paulo, we are able to make our efforts here more effective and to provide world-class services with dedicated local support to leading Brazilian schools and universities such as Rede Pitagoras and Universidade Positivo.

In order to create, nurture and grow a community in local the education industry, at the beginning of August we brought together hundreds of institutions and education leaders at two events held at Insper University, one of the leading Brazilian business schools.

The first was The Leadership Forum: Challenges in Education (Fórum de Lideranças: Desafios da Educação) where attendees discussed about the future of learning in Brazil and the latest trends in education. The second one, The Blackboard Brazil Community Meeting, was a client-only event and focused on updating attendees on the latest news about Blackboard solutions and services.

A comment from Simone Bérgamo, Academic Director of Grupo Ser Educacional is the best testimonial of our event success: “Challenges in Education is an event that makes us stop and think about our actions, guaranteeing that we are on the right path and that we always get the best for our students.”
