The Unizin Data Platform will also combine the digital footprints generated  across the entire consortium, enabling research across institutions of varying sizes, economies, and cultures. While these footprints will be removed from the original context for privacy purposes, they will be invaluable resources for studying learning behavior.


ManyClasses, led by a team of researchers at Indiana University, is a collaborative research project investigating the generalizability of educational interventions in real classrooms. ManyClasses “will examine the same research question in dozens of contexts, spanning a range of courses, institutions, formats, and student populations,” as enabled by the collaborative network of institutions in the Unizin consortium.
