From their website a few days ago: "The New Media Consortium and EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) have jointly released the NMC Horizon Report > 2013 Higher Education Edition." In the 1-year (ie., the 'blatantly obvious') list:

  • Flipped Classroom
  • Massively Open Online Course
  • Mobile Apps
  • Tablet Computing

I will make one remark: it's Massive Open Online Courses, not 'Massively'. The 'ly' got added on by a blog somewhere and it has propagated through the blogosphere and researchosphere as a marker indicating the author did not check primary sources (it's liek the way a person uses the term 'blog' to refer to a single post, as in "I wrote a blog", when the meaning of 'blog' is a series or collection of posts. Again, it's a mususe of a term serving as a marker indicating the writer did not check his or her sources.
