This year, a survey by the Brazilian Association for Training and Development (ABTD), in partnership with Integração Escola de Negócios, indicated that three of all training courses in the country are already online (69%). . Two years earlier, pre-covid, that number was only 29%. O The market for online education, or e-learning, continues to grow and, according to Global Marketing Insights, it is expected to double in size by 2027, reaching $ 500 billion, coming primarily from functional empowerment.

The market already has specialized educational solutions in the pipeline. Edtechs, initiatives that use technology to create differentiated teaching solutions, have grown 26% in two years, according to the Centro de Innovação para a Educação Brasileira and the Associação Brasileira de Startups do Brasil. Of every 20 national startups that receive more resources or gain prominence, one is already specifically in this area.

The student can participate from home, lying on the bed, when transported to the classroom. There, he walks, talks, claps his hands and interacts with his colleagues, while I write on the board, I make a presentation and I can ask questions, ”he explained to the Stay Alessandra Montini, director of the Labdata core of the FIA.

China, the USA, Mexico and parts of Europe have invested in training and courses taught only in virtual reality. This year USP became the first public college to “buy land” in this online space.

For many, the metaverse will help to exploit the concept of ESG. NRF Retail’s Big Show 2022, the world’s largest retail event, put the two words at the beginning of the year as central to the future.
