A new academic year begins with great news for the Adventist Educational Network. Times have changed, and the isolation and subsequent social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic have modified school dynamics, especially attendance in classrooms.
During the 2021 school year, Adventist educational institutions in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay will gradually join E-class School, an exclusive virtual educational platform for the Adventist Education Network. The official launch of E-class School will be on Monday, February 22.

The new E-class School system will allow teachers, pedagogical coordinators, principals, parents, and students to participate in classes, each from their own home or wherever they are, as long as they have a device connected to the internet.

E-class School will facilitate and mediate the interaction between educators and students, without loss of content, within the established technical and pedagogical criteria. The new platform will feature:

  • Live classes by private video conference between the teacher and students
  • Creative and interactive classes, programmed by the teacher through text files, audio, video, and images
  • Instant feedback, live and through a private chat for each class
  • Reports to help parents and teachers with pedagogical control

How to Enter

Access to the platform will be through the official website of each educational institution (see map), as well as eclass.educacionadventista.com. All students, teachers, coordinators, directors, and parents may enter with their respective username and password, which each educational institution would have previously provided.
