Porto Editora is the biggest Portuguese educational publisher.
With an extremely diverse catalog, covering areas such as Education, Reference and Literature (fiction, non-fiction, children's), Porto Editora is also a leading publisher of digital contents, in the areas of education, edutainment and reference.
Since its foundation in 1944, Porto Editora has distinguished itself by the excellence of its work through its editorial quality, innovation, dynamism, rigour and sustainability.
The emergence of new technologies has highlighted one of Porto Editora's most distinguished features: its innovative spirit. It was the first Portuguese company to implement technological solutions in its editorial process and, more importantly, it soon became the leading player in multimedia publishing.
In 2005, Porto Editora launched Escola Virtual, the first e-learning Portuguese website providing primary and secondary school contents to students based on Young Digital Planet educational platform and solutions.
Since then, Escola Virtual has grown exponentially as a result of the investment made in new features, particularly in educational offers oriented towards teachers and towards the presentation of solutions to institutional clients: schools and colleges.
With only 6 years of existence, Escola Virtual has an outstanding performance: it’s subscribed by over 200 000 users and approximately 50% of colleges and public schools nationwide use it.
The success of Escola Virtual is a clear example of the remarkable work of Porto Editora in digital learning and its perseverance to maintain its role as the Portuguese educational leading publisher.
