Horizon Report: 2017 Higher Education Edition
The 2017 Horizon Report: Higher Education Edition is a collaborative effort between the NMC and the EDUCAUSE Learning initiative (ELI). This edition describes annual findings from the NMC Horizon Project, an ongoing research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in education. Six key trends, six significant challenges, and six important developments in educational technology are placed directly in the context of their likely impact on the core missions of universities and colleges, and detailed in succinct, non-technical, and unbiased presentations. Each has been tied to essential questions of relevance, policy, leadership, and practice. The three key sections of this reports constitute a reference and straightforward technology-planning guide for educators, higher education leaders, administrators, policymakers, and technologists.
