the search for options //
Some trainers build their own materials and share it under an open license Some materials are outdated, but useful Brazilians share a lot of open materials, but the language is a bit different Other trainers build their own materials but close them or don't share

motivation //
The last government approved a law for open standards Portuguese government nevertheless spends too much of our money in Microsoft Licenses (do we really need them?)
