Computer-assisted Instruction :: Programs
Computers are an integral part of the curriculum in the IEP. All writing classes include computer-assisted writing instruction in university computer laboratories. Since computer competence is important in universities in the United States, our students receive training in word-processing and e-mail.
Indiana University is consistently ranked among the most "wired" campuses in the U.S.

- All IEP students have access to extensive computing facilities
- All dormitories have computer access, and all of the rooms have dedicated network ports for student computers;
