Today we began with a visit to an e-learning training centre. We discovered that Moodle has been introduced to enable students to access material from home. It’s something used across Irish 3rd level education systems, but perhaps could be introduced to second level and further education courses.
This was followed by a visit to the local town markets in Barcelos. We were highly impressed with the degree of entrepreneurship displayed and indeed, had a number of impulse buys.
Finally, This afternoon we went on a cultural visit to nearby city called Braga. Got to see a picturesque church and park overlooking the city. Also got to use a 100 year old tram/elevator – 100% powered by water!
