The Horizon Project | JISC Observatory Wiki

Welcome to the workspace for Horizon.JISC, a collaboration between the New Media Consortium's Horizon Project and the JISC Innovation Support Centres (CETIS and UKOLN). This space is a place for the members of the Horizon.jisc Project Advisory Board to manage the process of reviewing and ranking emerging technologies for a special report to be issued in fall 2011.

Horizon.jisc applies the process developed for the New Media Consortium's Horizon Project with a focus on emerging technologies for higher education in the United Kingdom. Members of the higher education community are encouraged to follow the Advisory Board's progress as the discussion unfolds and to use the wiki as a resource and reference tool.

Introduction to the Horizon Project Wiki

The Sandbox is our primary work area, where you will find links to the areas in which we are actively engaged. You will see it change as we move through the various processes involved in sorting through the technologies and issues we will deal with as we make our way to the final list that we'll feature in the Technology Trends in UK Tertiary Education 2011-2016: An NMC Horizon Report Analysis.
