Across the broader business of learning and education, if there’s an area that hasn’t been tapped to it’s full potential – or even to it’s partial potential – it’s educational data mining and learning analytics.

Dr. Ryan Baker, associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania and director of the Penn Center for Learning Analytics, is known for his role in establishing the educational data mining scientific community and also founded the world's first Masters program in learning analytics. His work focuses on finding student data related to learning, engagement, or emotion that can be used today as well as to predict – and hopefully improve – future student outcomes. He’s published a wide range of academic papers and articles and has also taught the popular MOOC, Big Data and Education multiple times.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa Steele talks with Ryan about his work in the areas of educational data mining and learning analytics, the importance of understanding student engagement and disengagement, as well as intelligent tutoring systems and their impact on lifelong learning.

Personalized lifelong learning for all. That’s the driving force behind the 9 Billion Schools movement, which was conceived with the recognition that every individual is uniquely different in their ability, interests, hopes and dreams. And all human beings on Earth – there’s projected to be about nine billion of us by 2050, in case you’re wondering what the significance of that number is – will flourish if they have access to lifelong learning opportunities that meet these diverse and ever-changing needs.

Lauren Della Bella and Dick Thomas are passionate leaders behind the 9 Billion Schools movement and co-authors of, 9 Billion Schools: Why the World Needs Personalized, Lifelong Learning for All.  They are also both leaders at SHP, a nationally recognized architecture firm focused on learning spaces of all kinds. Lauren serves as the organization’s president, and Dick as the vice president of architecture. Together they are reimagining the global approach towards education and learning while inspiring discussion, innovation and action around this critical issue.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Jeff talks with Lauren and Dick about the key concepts behind the 9 Billion Schools movement as well as how space and technology are impacting the learning landscape.

We recently told you about the major areas that all learning businesses should be thinking about as they consider how best to grow and improve their offerings – what we coined the 4 “Cs” of the current learning landscape. And that included concision, context, competency, and community.

But we quickly realized there was another area of equal importance that wasn’t originally included so we are unveiling a fifth "C" to add to this important list of trends impacting the learning business landscape – competition.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff discuss ways to help you get a handle on the competition in your market using Michael Porter’s Five Forces model as a framework for discussion.
