The New Media Consortium (NMC) and EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) recently released the NMC Horizon Report: 2012 Higher Education Edition. Like previous NMC Horizon Reports, six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, as well as key trends and challenges expected to continue over the same period, giving campus leaders and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning.

  1. Mobile Apps (One Year or Less)
