- There will be more and more interest in popular culture and multimedia artistic products.
- Research has become easier due to electronic libraries and books. Electronic books are already popular and it remains to see how they will affect the reading habits of our students. And of course, whatever new technology appears, science fiction writers will be exploring it.
