Now Available: The 2018 NMC Horizon Report | EDUCAUSE

The 2018 NMC Horizon Report brought to you by EDUCAUSE is here! 

For years, the NMC and EDUCAUSE communities have come to expect future-focused thinking in the pages of the Horizon Report. continues this tradition of excellence as it explores the ways learning, teaching, and creative inquiry are affected by:
  • Key trends accelerating higher education technology adoption
  • Significant challenges impeding higher education technology adoption 
  • Important developments in technology for higher education 
Illustrating the educational technology developments, 109 project submissions were received and of these, 18 were selected for inclusion in the Horizon Report.

The selected projects illustrate the use of one or more of these six developments in educational technology:
  • Mixed reality
  • Makerspaces
  • Adaptive learning technologies
  • Analytics technologies
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Robotics
The majority of institutional responses reveal the growing use of hybrid spaces, such as mixed reality, opening up new dimensions and opportunities for learning. 

Makerspaces is another popular development that aims to reimagine and renovate classrooms into “idea workshops” of the future.
