The Horizon Report 2010 edition describes emerging technologies. Included in this year’s list is mobile computing, open content, electronic books, visual data analysis, simple augmented reality, and gesture-based computing. The following quote comes from the introductory remarks to the section on Open Content:
“The movement toward open content reflects a growing shift in the way academics in many parts of the world are conceptualizing education to a view that is more about the process of learning than the information conveyed in their courses. Information is everywhere; the challenge is to make effective use of it”.
