Freedman Center in EDUCAUSE & New Media Consortium Horizon Report
The EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) and New Media Consortium (NMC) Horizon Project has released their research "Six Key Emerging Technologies for Higher Ed" (January 30, 2008). Describing six areas of emerging technologies that are expected to have impact on teaching, learning, and creative expression in higher education within 3-5 years, the report notes a project by the Freedman Center.
The report uses the example of Pocket Virtual Worlds, a collaborative effort between the College of Technology, Bowling Green State University and the Kelvin Smith Library Freedman Center. Using the project's technological applications, you can take a virtual field trip to a medieval ruin or an African safari... create images and recreate/explore locations in history, and take the experience to a game playing level.
Try it out now: 'walk' in a campus building you may never have been in before, and see it 360-degrees:
