Belo Horizonte City Hall opens applications for free online courses, focused on topics such as digital entrepreneurship, new technologies, programming and home office tools – a practice that has become increasingly common due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During virtual classes, students receive guidance, via chat, e-mail or WhatsApp, from teachers at Prodabel's (Belo Horizonte’s Computer and Information Company) Digital Inclusion Board. The purpose of the courses is to help merchants and entrepreneurs in the economic recovery process and adapt to the new digital trends brought about by the health crisis.
