Temiskaming Interactive Circuits

Temiskaming Interactive Circuits

The Temiskaming Interactive Circuits are historical, cultural and discovery self guided community tours.  The project incorporates the key elements of community capacity development, community engagement and community assets with the use of the internet and mobile devices.  The TiC project was developed by Artem, a francophone cultural organisation from the Temiskaming region.  The goal of the TiC (Temiskaming Interactive Circuits) Project was to develop an innovative and affordable way to promote the touristic and cultural aspects of the area Temiskaming region.  The Presidents’ Suites was a collaborator on this project.

More About the Temiskaming Interactive Circuits (TiC) 

Interactive Community Tours showcase various interest points (sites, events, people, etc.) of a community. When these interest points are regrouped under a pertinent theme or geographic region, it then becomes a tour.  Users have the option of listening, reading or seeing the tours via smart phones or electronic tablets. In the context of this project, these tours are offered free of charge to its various users, whom could be pedestrians, motorists, motorcyclists or even cyclists.
