ILC Brasil constantly seeks the top of the line technology available so students around the world will have access to the best Portuguese learning experience. As verbal interaction and the exchange of experiences are the most important elements in language learning; we rely on the best distance learning tools to achieve this goal.
Currently, we are fortunate to have technologies that will support those aspects, and allow us to teach a class online that offers much of experience one would have in a traditional classroom setting.

This tool is used but higher education institutions around the world a delivers video-conferencing abilities to allow full interaction among students, teachers and class materials. The virtual learning environment offered by Adobe Connect is one most advanced tools in the market for synchronous distance learning.

Self-instruction and Special Courses
In courses such as the Celpe-Bras Prep and the Free Basic Portuguese for Travelers, ILC Brasil makes use of Learning Management Systems (LMS) that give students access to their desired courses. Not only the LMS contains all the courses’ learning materials but also serve as the main contact point between students and faculty.
Today, ILC Brasil uses the OpenEdX as its main LMS platform. Developed by a consortium lead by the MIT and Harvard University, this tool is used by major universities and educational institutions around the world.
