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 2007 are:
- User-Created Content
- Social Networking
- Mobile Phones
- Virtual Worlds
- New Scholarship and Emerging Forms of Publication
- Massively Multiplayer Educational Gaming<
