In 1994, CSHE began its consideration of the impact of internet technology on higher education. Now, 15 yeas later, online education has become a permanent fixture of higher education world-wide. However, dramatic as the technology-induced changes have been, the pace and impact of technology will intensify over the next 15 years. Jumping off from current observable, documented, and quantifiable episodes and trends, this presentation will make predictions about the transformations in higher education that are on the horizon. The implications of social networking technology, open educational resources (OER), Open CourseWare (OCW) and continuous improvement imperatives and techniques, will, among other examples, be logically extended to the future. Current University of California (UC) initiatives including the efforts around a proposed UC cyber-university, wide-spread video capture of lectures, and the Academic Senate call for increased use of low cost OER, will be placed in the broader context of these predictions.
