ABEL engages in beneficial collaborations that allow its business, government and non-profit partners to innovate, collaborate and transform their practices. Our partners are organizations in the public and private sector as well as institutions involved in research and in the community.

Why Partner with ABEL? 

ABEL’s partnerships support successful market engagement in the education sector as well as in other sectors focused on training and learning. One of the ways our partners benefit is through lower costs by reducing the amount of time it takes to market online services or products. ABEL partners are also able to test research ideas in the classroom or workplace, define product features, validating product benefits and their return on investment.

Partners in the ABEL program receive access to:

  • A community of practice that is inter-institutional and inter-jurisdictional
  • Lower costs for trials and faster time to market, test and validate products and services in real classroom/education situations
  • An established open learning platform and an award winning community of practice
  • Maximized product exposure without the need to invest in extra cost infrastructure
  • Leveraged products with proven best practice broadband teaching tools and content
  • A research and evaluation program focused on the impact and benefit of digital technologies on professional development and student achievement
  • A program that enables partners to beta test and modify product features prior to product launch
  • Established product value proposition pricing prior to formal marketing and sales.
