In response to recent societal trends and growing demand for online education, several higher education institutions are building online curriculums and teaching collaboration. There is an extensive body of literature of student experiences in online teaching, but more research is needed on teacher experiences, especially when courses are co-taught across universities. To examine the advantages and challenges of co-teaching on large-scale online courses we collected survey and interview data during 2017-2019 from 16 teachers who have been teaching on national “LITO - basic business studies” online module. Based on qualitative analysis the advantages and challenges were classified into three distinct categories: teacher, student and university levels. All in all, numerous important benefits were identified; peer-support, sharing and networking being among the most significant ones. Organizational support for co-teaching was identified as a critical factor enabling the benefits. Finally, suggestions for developing co-taught large-scale online courses across universities are given.
