"The subject matter in this report was identified through a qualitative research process designed and conducted by the NMC that engages an international body of experts in education, technology, business, and other fields around a set of research questions designed to surface significant trends and challenges and to identify emerging technologies with a strong likelihood of adoption in higher education. The NMC Horizon Report > 2013 Higher Education Edition details the areas in which these experts were in strong agreement.
'Campus leaders and practitioners across the world use the report as a springboard for discussion around significant trends and challenges,' says Larry Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of the NMC. 'The biggest trend identified by the advisory this year reflects the increasing adoption of openness on and beyond campuses, be it in the form of open content or easy access to data. This transition is promising, but there is now a major need for content curation.'"
