The premier one-stop website for live, interactive learning experiences. Live, interactive learning experiences.

Expanding boundaries, igniting inspiration…the world at your fingertips!

At the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC) we are passionate about carrying out our mission to support, advance and enhance lifelong learning through the use of collaborative technologies and innovations.

CILC places great value on its Content Providers, nearly 200 of the very best cultural organizations and talent from around the world. They make it all possible by connecting students to unique subject matter, artifacts, and experiences. Representing museums, science centers, art galleries, zoos, aquariums, musicians, authors, and more,  many of our providers play important roles in collecting and preserving histories and cultures and in helping to advance critical scientific research and innovation.

Members—teachers and administrators, program and activity directors, and parents—have opened their doors to the world. Through interactive learning and collaboration, they help to expand opportunities for students of all ages to learn through engagement with over 1,900 professionally-delivered programs, evaluated by teachers for teachers.

The CILC team and its Board of Directors adopted four Core Values to meet its mission. These Core Values are:

  • To provide specific opportunities to meet the needs of LIFELONG learners

  • To encourage GLOBAL learning opportunities to foster empathy and cultural awareness

  • To promote learning opportunities that are RELEVANT and engaging for learners

  • To create an inclusive, DIVERSE and equitable learning environment through CILC programs and collaborations
