Despite its challenges, the year 2021 has been a mark for the internationalization of Eduix’s operations. The fact that I am writing this post in Brazil, right now, is one of its milestones. If we make a timeline of what has happened during this year, we should notice that:
I am in my home country, after 2 years of a long wait in between a pandemic, not only to visit my dear family and friends, but also to talk with education stakeholders about Eduix and our vast experience in digitizing education processes. We believe we can support Brazilian education institutions in promoting high quality hybrid and online education with our edtech solutions!Continue reading “Eduix wishes”
