The Horizon Project Navigator

 

The NMC newly launched a website (http://navigator.nmc.org/ ) called The Horizon Project Navigator. “The new website will allow users to fully exploit the Horizon Project’s extensive and expanding collection of relevant articles, research, and projects related to emerging technology and its applications worldwide, as well as the NMC’s expert analysis and extensive catalog of sharable rich media assets. Users will be able to manipulate and customize information in real time, contribute new information, add their own commentary and analysis, and rate the quality and usefulness of the ideas, models, and content shared by the community.” The new navigator website has a library that is searchable according to different categories. The website allows any institutions to share their projects by logging in at go.nmc.org/projects

Lynda.com – leading software training and tutorial video library (http://www.lynda.com/ ).

 

Lynda.com has became the leading online tutorial website. It is a licensed product that offers over a thousand video tutorials on leading software topics including Adobe products, Apple products, Microsoft products, video editing, audio editing, operating systems and much more. These high-quality tutorials are taught by industry experts and available 24/7 for convenient, self-paced learning. Many learning institutions have implemented online software training videos via Lynda.com as a supplement to in-class training, staff professional development, and a reference resource to patrons. Some of their libraries use Lynda for iPad training as well.

Aurasma is an app (http://www.aurasma.com/ ) created out of technology that is capable of recognizing images, symbols and objects in the real world and understanding them. It can then deliver relevant content in real time, including videos, animations, audio or webpages. One of the poster session winners used this technology for her poster to make it more interactive and to present more information.

Other info: Some of the institutions use Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud as their virtual computer servers. Some of university libraries are the members of Safari Online Books.
