As the centerpiece of NMC's Horizon Project, the NMC Horizon Report series charts the landscape of emerging technologies for teaching, learning and creative inquiry around the globe. Since the launch of the Horizon Project in March 2002, the NMC has held an ongoing series of conversations and dialogs with more than 1,200 technology professionals, campus technologists, faculty leaders from colleges and universities, and representatives of leading corporations.

Each year, a Panel of Experts considers the results of these dialogs and also looks at a wide range of articles, published and unpublished research, papers, and websites to generate a list of technologies, trends, challenges, and issues that knowledgeable people in technology industries, higher education, and museums are thinking about.

This project continues in 2016-17 again with cooperation from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative. The 2017 Horizon Project Expert Panel was convened in July 2016 and conducted its research and discussion in this wikispace. The NMC Horizon Report > 2017 Higher Education Edition will be released in February, 2017.

Members of the education community are encouraged to follow the Panel of Expert's progress as the discussion unfolded and to use the wiki as a resource and reference tool. It is the record of the processes used, materials referenced, research methods, and decisions that are part of creating the NMC Horizon Report > 2017 Higher Education Edition. It is meant to provide a deep resource of materials that underpin the Report.

Any interested party is encouraged to participate in the Horizon Project, as users of and contributors to the wiki, or by using the project's hashtag on Twitter: #NMChz.
