Internet 2, also known as “I2,” is an important educational and research tool that was designed originally as a way to allow users to share important amounts of data in a more efficient way. It can be effectively used to internationalize curriculum for students unable to participate in mobility programs. The presenter will review initiatives developed at Mexican institutions to offer academic programs and courses in partnership with universities and colleges abroad, including the US and Canada. He will also discuss the development of collaborative international academic networks. He will talk about the scope and limitations of the technology, as well as lessons learned. His presentation will include recommendations for the appropriate use of I2 as a tool for internationalization at home.
