Our organization has been working with CILC since the fall of 2019 as we launched virtual field trips from our museum. From setting up our Distance Learning Studio to training our educators on best practices in online learning, CILC has been there every step of the way to help us conceive, create, and deliver virtual programming we are proud of. Moreover, their customer service is outstanding and response time is lightning quick. It's been a pleasure working with CILC and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them far into the future.

I have had the privilege to offer my virtual educational programs through the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration for over 20 years. The site is very easy to navigate. Listing, editing, and updating my programs is intuitive and NOT time consuming. Also, the staff at CILC is extremely helpful and very responsive. They are constantly coming up with innovative ways for us (content providers) to reach more educators and classrooms. It has been a pleasure to be a content provider for CILC. It has allowed me to connect with students from all over the world!

Their team is the very best. The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio has worked with the CILC for over 15 year and we can say our programs have benefited from their expertise and the niche they fill. When we first started video conferencing back in 2005 they were their to help us launch and connect us to schools. We have also been able to reach schools from all over the country because of the CILC's network of schools. Schools that are seeking rich content from the Hall of Fame and other cultural institutions across the globe to supplement their classroom teaching. The CILC has been the one stop shop for institutions like the Hall of Fame to advertise our programs but also give teachers a searchable database of content (video conference programs) that educators can search by subject, grade and so much more. Our programs wouldn't be where they are at today without the CILC.

I have been working with CILC for over 10 years and they have been a joy to work with. Over the years, their service has grown, with more options, more colorful, and more ways to connect to the virtual audience. Offering programs from Alaska, it was always difficult to explain the time changes to East Coast schools. But their website does all the calculations and I have never missed the timing since. Even though they have grown, they still remain personal connections to their clientele. Should I need assistance, I only have to pick up the phone and call. They know me and can quickly explain things. Lately, CILC has provided Teacher workshops, a way for Long Distance Providers to share their programs with teachers, so they can better understand this new venue for educating students. With every passing year, CILC has expanded services and seem to be on the cutting edge of ideas. Our programming at Glacier Bay National Park has grown because of the service that CILC provides.

We consider CILC the Craig's List of virtual field trips. It is simple to navigate and locate the opportunities you are looking for. I work with school districts and all I have to pass on is cilc.org and the teachers can pick it up and run from there. More then not I don't even know of all of the exciting places and events that are taking place and that's my goal. I want a tool that others can easily use without my having to micromanage the use.

I am a distance learning coordinator in western Nebraska. Our schools do not have many opportunities to visit and see many cultural and educational sites in person. They rely on the many resources provided in CILC to provide their students with enrichment opportunities without leaving the classroom. They are invaluable.

Excellent and ground-breaking services in virtual education. I have worked with CILC for close to a decade as a provider of video conferencing for schools and lifelong learners. The advancements in technology has kept this nonprofit vital and easy to navigate in bringing educational resources to students and learners in locations that could have never been reached in person. They provide a key to unlock doors of knowledge that would otherwise have not been available.

I got involved with CILC through my supervisor and the National Park's Foundation. We are Indiana Dunes National Park and have started presenting virtual programs due to Covid. We had never done this type of programming before the pandemic.

This is a GREAT tool. We have been able to touch classes on the other side of the world through this. I've been able to present programs in Poland, Canada, Equador, India as well as over a dozen states in the U.S.. I love CILC.

I've worked with The Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration for almost two decades now. They are pioneers in the field of interactive video learning and each year they bring more and more to their network. In addition to providing an invaluable service to thousands of learners, they also support and celebrate many other nonprofits by building a community of practice for IVL content providers. It's easy to get lost and lonely while learning behind a screen. CILC is a guiding beacon that brings light and vitality to online learning and they are a pinnacle example of a great nonprofit.

The CILC has helped us succeed in our distance learning mission since 2005. The organization has been an invaluable resource for our program development and an essential gathering point for videoconference content providers to share tips and improve our profession. We simply wouldn't be where we are without them!

I had never heard of the CILC before beginning of 2021. Nothing but rave reviews.

As a parent, their programming is full of choices and levels. I am excited there is a choice like this for classrooms to bring in variety especially in this day and age of online everything.

As a provider, the results have been amazing. We are growing and getting exposure to classrooms and help make a difference. Jan and Tami are awesome! Very professional and super responsive to any requests we have of them. They were patient and supportive during their onboarding process.

Our schools in AZ have never heard of them. I am working with my sons IEP team at school, teachers and parents to share their FREE programs. An awesome organization.....

Proud to be a Provider
Excited as a Parent (and sharing EVERYWHERE I can)

Kudos to the CILC team! Tremendous job thanks for being a bright light for educators and parents like me whose kids benefit from your amazing program!!!

I have been a member of CILC in two different jobs: once at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia and now at the San Diego Model Railroad Museum in San Diego. They are top notch, efficient, friendly and reasonably priced. They provide excellent service and help us make our virtual programs available to a national, sometimes even international audience. Their systems is easy to use and they provide excellent marketing.
