This project will support the next stage in the collaborative research arrangement between the University of Adelaide and Google Australia to support the design and development of effective online learning environments for teacher professional development.

This project will support the analysis of data collected over two years of our collaborative MOOC projects to better understand and explore the relationship between social community formation and course engagement, activity and progression. This analysis will explore a detailed dataset of 1,800 teachers including community interactions (contributions, comments, likes) and teacher participation (lesson participation, lesson completion, video engagement, overall completion) along with the related timing of such interactions.
