2008-Horizon-Report.pdf (application/pdf Object)

The Horizon Report 2008 edition has been released! It is available for download and the Horizon Project wiki is also online. Soon the report will be coming to FDI to be distributed among all faculty enrolled in the spring/summer tracks.

The Horizon Report is a collaboration between the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative. As stated in the Horizon Report itself, "[t]he project uses qualitative research methods to identify the technologies selected for inclusion in each report, beginning with a survey of the work of other organizations and a review of the literature with an eye to spotting interesting emerging technologies" (2008, p. 8). It covers the key emerging technologies, the critical challenges we will face, significant trends (on the rise and in the past), and an analysis of the past five years of trends found in the recent evolution of emerging technologies.
