Colibri – Collaboration Platform

Innovative response

Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT), through Unidade de Computação Científica Nacional (FCCN), reinforced the capacity of the main services provided to the research and higher education community and that ensure distance learning and remote working. The tools made available, namely Colibri Collaboration Platform, allow to set up remote classes, online meetings and information sharing. Since the beginning of march to April 15th, Colibri platform registered 3.7 million hits and more than 200 thousand lessons/meetings.
