East Central Ohio Educational Service Center (ECOESC), one of just five K-12 Confucius Institutes within the United States, is well-versed in sharing academic courses through Interactive Video Distance Learning. Director of Distance Education, Michele Carlisle, has been facilitating shared courses through IVDL technology since 1999, when Ohio received its first large distance learning grants. During the ensuing years, Michele and the ESOESC have worked tirelessly to ensure that course delivery is seamless, reliable, effective and effortless each day, allowing schools and students to focus on instruction, not the delivery model. Currently the ECOESC employees a total of 18 world language instructors, each sharing live daily language instruction through distance learning.

World languages through East Central Ohio Educational Service Center focus on the targets of language instruction set forth by ACTFL standards; Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities. We strive for teaching a 2nd language through native, real-world practices and experiences; most class periods spend a target of 90% or more of the instructional time in the target language. Unlike world language classrooms of old, where grammar and vocabulary drills dominated instruction, our world language program focuses on language for proficiency. In our language programs, students and teachers are engaged in the target language through authentic learning experiences, producing proficient speakers in the language. Below are the courses that East Central Ohio Educational Service Center is offering for the 2016-2017 Academic school year.
