1. Why should we choose iLearningi to provide solutions for our science education and training programs?
iLearningi is different than other organizations because we have, for many years, actually created and run successful science education programs. As we work or consult with you on design, implementation, or assessmentóor full program turnkey solutions -- we will bring the critical value-added component of our years of experience, perspectives and expertise. With iLearningi on board, you can be assured that your program, even grant writing and annual reporting tasks, is in capable and experienced hands.

2. What is special about iLearningiís assessment solutions?
We are scientists who have vast experience assessing an array of programs. We have also had the experience of employing external evaluators for some of our programs. Based on these experiences, iLearningi understands the value of a clear, outcomes-based program assessment that provides both just-in-time program optimization and meets reporting requirements for funding agencies. Thus, iLearningi has created an approach that blends traditional assessment methods with our innovative research-based methods. This approach actively employs technology to make the assessment more cost-effective, thorough, analytical, efficient, and user-friendly. Importantly, with iLearningiís assessment solutions, you donít have to manage, maintain, or support the technology, or even analyze, perform statistics, graph, or write reports---iLearningi performs those tasks and more to allow you to focus on other programmatic areas.

3. What does iLearningi offer that is unique and will help make my NIH-supported science training program increase diversity in biomedical research, be more successful, and assure grant renewal?
Diversity in science careers has been a major area of program development, research, and accomplishments for us. It offers such programs a network of experts and practitioners established over many years, skill and insight at securing NIH grants to achieve diversity, innovative initiatives and processes, and evaluation that dynamically guides program development and success.

5. What is special about iLearningi, in terms of how it will interact with us during a project vs. the more distant level of interaction we have had in the past with similar businesses?
iLearningi is an organization that has its intellectual, social, and professional foundation firmly planted in scientific research, science education and training, seeing its relationship with customers as a collaboration built upon that foundation. This special perspective is manifest in the spectrum of mechanisms iLearningi uses to communicate, innovate, troubleshoot, and report to its client, which are determined by the project and funding. Because of this mindset, we are comfortable and successful at working with clients regardless of their physical proximity to iLearningiís offices.

6. We want to begin using technology and multimedia in our education initiatives to garner more student interest, increase adoption of curricular materials, ensure equal access to knowledge, track program accomplishments and evaluate program initiatives and overall success. Can iLearningi take on a project of this scope, thus enabling us to use one organization, save on cost, and have a top quality product?
What distinguishes iLearningi from similar organizations is our considerable experience and accomplishments integrating multimedia and technology into science learning at all levels of the education process. This expertise, coupled with our ďTailored TechnologyĒ approach to developing IT-rich programs, positions iLearningi, using our network of experts as needed, to provide you technology/multimedia solutions customized for success in your ecosystem.

7. Can iLearningi help us get funding, e.g., grants, local and state funding, that will enable us to achieve our science education and training goals?
We have secured over $53 million in grants, contracts and appropriations for science education, training, and research initiatives, including funding from NIH Institutes and Centers, NSF, state and federal governments, foundations, institutes, and corporations. Help with funding can be as basic as consulting on the development of an idea/concept, identifying funding agencies, or consulting on grant preparation. iLearningi can also help you write your grant, or we can write a grant on your behalf. End-to-end solutions are also available, starting at the point of project design to implementation and assessment.

8. Would iLearningi be interested in being a collaborator on my grant, and what added value would this bring to the application?
iLearningi is interested in collaborating on grants as long as our expertise will contribute to the proposal programmatically and increase the chances for funding. The value added that we bring to a proposal is our innovative integrated science learning methods, strategies and approaches, as well as our nationally recognized science education and scientific accomplishments.

9. What are iLearningiís rates and fees?
The nature of the project plays a key role in determining its cost. For example, iLearningi consults on an hourly basis, and delivers workshops for a fixed fee determined by the amount of preparation/customization needed and number of participants. We develop grants and manage programs and assessment on a project basis. Use of technology, amount of writing and reporting requested, number of contact hours, project deadlines, etc. are additional cost factors. Give us a call and we will work with you to develop a rate and delivery schedule customized to meet your needs.
