ISchools are highly interdisciplinary in nature - hence the direction and vision of iSchools have attracted researchers from various disciplines in recent times. In this paper, we analyzed the contents of the courses offered by 22 iSchools from different parts of the world. Our system extracts information from the course descriptions offered by different iSchools and visualizes the current trend of offering more courses with substantially more emphasis on computation than other paradigms. The architecture of our system is simple yet powerful - which may encourage others to implement similar techniques in different iSchool-related research.
