Emerging technologies and scholarship
The Horizon Project is a collaboration between the New Media Center and the Educause Learning Initiative that studies the applications of emerging technologies likely to have a large impact on teaching, learning, and creative expression in higher education. The annual report, released last week, describes significant trends affecting higher education over the next 5 years. The section entitled New Scholarship and Emerging Forms of Publication discusses how the proliferation of audience- generated content combined with open-access content models is changing the way we think about scholarship and publication—and the way these activities are conducted.
