The collaboration between the publishers and the academics is ongoing and the initial results and the benefits to each party will be discussed during the first part of the session (10min). In the second part (20min), we will share and invite reflections from participants on how such partnerships add value to our understanding of how students learn online. We will also involve participants in a discussion around the role that learner analytics can play in sharing expertise between universities and publishers (Johnson et al, 2012).
