Horizon Report 2010
On January 19, 2010, the Horizon Report was officially released. Each year, New Media Consortium (NMC) and Educause releases its technology trends report for Higher Education. Last year, apparently it overlooked a big trend: open (free) content!
This year, top trends are:
Mobile computing - YR 1 or less
Open Content - " " "
Electronic BOoks - 2-3 YR Horizon
Simple augmented reality - " " "
Gesture-based computing - 4-5 YRS
Visual Data Analysis - " " "
This is "must" reading and sharing. It is ideal for strategic planning and technology planning committees. Share it widely and discuss how the higher education tech trends will impact your institution.
