What's Ahead in Technology for Higher Education in 2012?

While we wait for the annual Horizon report of the 6 most significant technologies to affect higher education in the next 5 years, Audrey Watters of Inside Higher Education has shared her predictions 

One significant difference in approach distinguish Watters'  predictions from most others:  her list includes policies and practices related to technology as well as fallout from tit.  

Among her predictions:
  • The impact of accreditation and recognition for participation in open courses.  
  • The impact of machine grading on work opportunities for graders, teaching assistants and even instructors.  
  • The impact of open source materials on publishing--and the openness of faculty to the new economics of publishing.
