Horizon Report 2005

The annual Horizon Report is a collaborative effort between the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI). Each year, the report identifies and describes six areas of emerging technology likely to have a significant impact on teaching, learning, or creative expression in higher education within three adoption horizons: a year or less, two to three years, and four to five years.

The areas of emerging technology cited for 2005 are:

  1. Extended Learning
  2. Ubiquitous Wireless
  3. Intelligent Searching
  4. Educational Gaming
  5. Social Networks and Knowledge Webs
  6. Context-Aware Computing/Augmented Reality
