Since it believes that in order to learn it is not necessary to be inside a classroom, the Catraca Livre is inspired by formal and non-formal education  models to create a “Web Education ” publishing together with the ABH Foundation.

Catraca Livre has an average of 25 million views per month; due to this reaching power ABH Foundation believed that the partnership would be a key mean to disseminate education content to the society .

Web Educação is a virtual space where the user has the opportunity to meet and learn online, and for free , on various subjects . This digital platform offers free content oriented to education , already existing in many web spaces, in one single portal and with qualified professionals’ curator.

There are options of classic subjects such as Portuguese , history , mathematics and geography ; courses and lectures , MBA, but we believe that as important as these subjects, it is also interesting and pleasant to see people learning subjects on  a day to day basis. Additional topics such as gardening , decoration , mechanics , download of books , virtual tour to museums , or even ” how to tie a knot”, are part of the list of information .
