One important thing to keep in mind when scheduling a virtual field trip is TIME ZONES!! Remember that some of the content providers might be in another time zone. Here is a handy time zone chart to help you figure out what time it is where (thanks, Dave Davidson!).


To facilitate schools in accessing learning opportunities via video conferencing, the Learning Network of Vermont banks funds with the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC).  These funds are accessible to schools either on or neighbored to the LNV system.  Schools are awarded an alottment of programs to to use during a specific timeframe, any unused funds are then redistributed across the LNV sites for use. It is a use it or lose it distribution system.  Educational contacts for the LNV cameras -- as per information provided by schools to the VT Dept of Education -- are notified of the credit allotments.  The CILC allocations are typically made 3 times a year (in Sept for use by late Dec, in Jan for use by mid April, and in late April for use by end of June).


See the CILC site to search for instructionally appropriate content. 

See LNV_CILC_Instructions.pdf for a guide on how to book programs so that they are charged to the LNV Content Dollar Bank.



Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration




The Learning Network of Vermont – VT’s in-school video conferencing network -- has set-up a content dollar bank with the nonprofit Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC) . The CILC dollar bank allows LNV sites to access fee-based content from a variety of providers, including NASA, Smithsonian museums, Baseball Hall of Fame, Library of Congress, Mote Marine Laboratory, Manhattan School of Music, Cincinnati Art Museum and many more.
