PLANNING YOUR SPACE
Facility design is crucial to a successful distance learning initiative. CILC’s staff of museum professionals assists cultural organizations with design issues regarding placement of IVC equipment. Issues such as lighting, sound, and crowd management all play a role in determining the best scenario for delivering interactive video programming.
DEVELOPING YOUR PLAN
A clear implementation plan is essential to a successful initiative. Working with key staff of the cultural organization, CILC designs a plan which guides staff through the necessary components of launching the distance learning initiative.

Our Content Providers Say It Best....
"My goal was to learn from an expert what I needed to know to have a successful IVC program here at the museum. CILC was perfect. Tami at CILC was knowledgeable, had personal experience in a museum setting, and was realistic in terms of equipment needs, spatial requirements, technology, and time commitment. Her interaction with my staff helped them gain a better understanding of what we are embarking on as well. It was the best money I could have invested in our future success.”
