2010 Horizon Report

The annual Horizon Report describes the continuing work of the NMC’s Horizon Project, a research-oriented effort that seeks to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have considerable impact on teaching, learning, and creative expression within higher education. The 2010 Horizon Report was released in January 2010.  The annual Horizon Report is a collaborative effort between the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the ELI.  Each year, the report identifies six emerging technologies that are likely to have a significant impact on higher education in the next one to five years.  In addition, the report presents an overview accompanied by examples and suggested readings for each technology.
