We analyse engagement and performance data arising from participants’ interactions with an in-house LMS at Imperial College London while a cohort of students follow two courses on a new online postgraduate degree in Management. We identify and investigate two main questions relating to the relationships between engagement and performance, drawing recommendations for improved guidelines to inform the design of such courses.
