The company was founded as part of an R&D program begun at the UTC Engineering School in Compiègne (France, 1995), which led in 2003 to the creation in Brazil of Digital SK, a company dedicated to offering open-source and integrated e-learning solutions in order to encourage remote knowledge transfer. With over 370 projects implemented in the area of training and education for companies, schools, the public sector and tertiary institutions, Digital SK has made its mark by developing customized solutions that, once finalized, remain the sole property of its clients. With more than 180,000 students connected thanks to a network of servers set up in France, Brazil and the United States, Digital SK conducts medium to large-scale projects that enable clients to transform their knowledge into assets and thereby manage their human capital in innovative ways. Digital SK is seeking to become the leader in the education technology market, by emphasizing quality, client outcomes and open-source software, in serving to promote innovation in the truly critical field of education for Brazilians.
In 2004, the Hospitality Institute, benefiting from the support of Brazil's federal government through the Ministry of Tourism, contacted Digital SK to rollout the project "Tourism and CSR" in an effort to train and accompany young Brazilian students through their eventual recruitment.
