NMC Horizon Report

Where Does Ohio State Stand?

The New Media Consortium (NMC) is an Educational Technology group that has tracked the roles and trends of technology use in higher education since 1993. I first became familiar with their work during research of a Flash generating template for websites called Pachyderm when I first began work at the Digital Union in 2005.
