Horizon Report 2008

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 2008 are:

  1. Grassroots Video
  2. Collaboration Webs
  3. Mobile Broadband
  4. Data Mashups
  5. Collective Intelligence
  6. Social Operating Systems
