Abstract: Quality learning has become a key focus in Brazil in recent years, both for innovation in the education system and for efforts to open up greater opportunities for disadvantaged groups. To achieve this, the Brazilian Ministry of Education proposes a set of initiatives, one of them is the construction of an international repository. This project intent is to offer teachers and students free and open access to quality educational resources. The repository will support the Teacher’s Portal, where teachers will find a variety of tools and examples of best practices to improve the teaching/learning process. Hopefully the easy access to quality educational content integrated with the other government programs will improve learning in Brazil.
