International Studies In Schools (ISIS) is an innovative and award-winning distance learning program which uses interactive video technology to connect K-12 schools and community groups across the U.S. with Indiana University international students, scholars, and specialists. With no expensive travel abroad needed, the world is brought right into the classroom. In 1995, ISIS was created jointly by the Indiana University Office of International Programs and the School of Education's Center for Research on Learning and Teaching. This innovative outreach program is cooperatively organized by the Global Center and other world area studies centers across campus. ISIS received initial funding from the Indiana Humanities Council through the National Endowment for the Humanities and continues through support from the U.S. Department of Education under Title VI of the Higher Education Act and the Office of the Vice President for International Affairs at Indiana University.
