NMC Horizon Report :: 2013 Higher Education Edition

The NMC Horizon Report :: 2013 Higher Education Edition is a collaborative effort between the NMC and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI), an EDUCAUSE Program.

The tenth edition describes the annual findings from the NMC Horizon Project, a decade-long research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in higher education. Six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, as well as key trends and challenges expected to continue over the same period, giving campus leaders and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning.

HEA publishes first research into learning and teaching of Massive Open Online courses (MOOCS)

The first research into the learning and teaching of MOOCs is published today by the HEA, and finds that ‘the teacher persists’.

The Pedagogy of the MOOC: the UK View by Sian Bayne and Jen Ross from the University of Edinburgh, which also contains snapshots of five current UK MOOCs with an emphasis on the detail of teacher practice, concludes that although teaching functions are sometimes delegated to automated processes and community-based social learning in MOOCs, the place and visibility of the teacher remain of central importance.
