Co-founder Peter Laszlo's Message



Dear colleagues!

We hope that you found a lot of joy in using our materials in 2016! Now, please consider subscribing as a Supporting Member on iSLCollective. You name the price, and in return, you will see no ads on the site during your membership period.

As a Christmas present for our users, on December 13, 2016 we rolled out a new video lesson platform on iSLCollective. You can bring Youtube and Vimeo videos to the new iSLCollective video lesson editor and create interactive quizzes for them. Your quiz questions will show on top of the video, and pause it while students are answering the question. We made the editor super easy to use. Soon I hope we will have a huge library of superb video lessons that hundreds of thousands of colleagues will be using in their classes the world over. If you like our video lesson section, that's another reason to become a Supporting Member, because the incoming proceeds is what makes it possible to make our video lessons even more awesome!



We will use the incoming proceeds to maintain and continuously improve the site. We are giving you influence to shape the future of iSLCollective: you can decide where you'd like your money to go! During the payment process, you can select whether you want us to spend your money 1) on the development of the abovementioned new video lesson platform, 2) on the worksheets section or 3) "where most needed" (meaning you leave it for us to decide).

Our main expenditure elements are staff salaries and internet bills:

Technology:
Maintenance, data backup, servers, bandwidth, development, search engine optimization. We serve between 70-110,000 teachers every day so we have to maintain a powerful and reliable back-end infrastructure.

People:
8 iSLCollective staff members make sure that every aspect of the technological and administrative side of the operations is covered professionally.


Finally, let me tell you what our team has accomplished in 2016:

1) We gave a facelift to the site: the brand new design looks great on mobile phones and tablets, too. it took three months to finish this job, but it was worth it.
2) A new section for the main page showing the best uploads of the previous day.
3) We added a bunch of new servers for the site to run smoothly even when the site is seeing 100 thousand visits per day.
4) We provided technical support for our users throughout the year.
5) And finally, the brand new video lessons section!

Bless up,

Peter Laszlo

    "I believe it is only fair to support the work done by both the iSL crew and the thousands of teachers willing to share their materials with other colleagues. I felt the least I could do was to make a donation. After all, the web is superbly organized and very user-friendly, and the materials are brilliant most of the times. It really does save class preparation time. Keep it up!"

    "Me parece una página fantástica que llevo usando al menos tres años, se la recomiendo a cualquier profesor, maestro, alumno para que la utilicen, porque los recurso que se encuentran en ella son estupendos y muy útiles, no me decido a recomendar una actividad en concreto, porque todas son estupendas y desde aquí doy las gracias a todas aquellas personas que trabajan a diario para hacerme el trabajo mas fácil y a mis alumnos más ameno. Thanks a lot"

    "iSL Collective is the first website I visit when I need extra resources for my lessons. There's an amazing collection of projectables and worksheets, which cover a vast amount of topics and grammar issues. It saves me a lot of time and that's why I'm a sponsor (supporting member); it's my way of saying thank you to the people who run this website and the teachers that contribute their worksheets."
  • dwallnoefer dwallnoefer
    "Es ist wichtig, dass diese kollektive Seite bestehen bleibt... Danke für all das tolle Unterrichtsmaterial, das hier zur Verfügung gestellt wird!"
  • "I became a sponsor to show my appreciation for the uploading teachers and staff of iSLCollective. I find many relevant and useful handouts that my students enjoy using in class. Thank you, everyone."
  • "iSLCollective is very helpful and easy to use. I'm so happy that I found it and I wouldn't replace it with any other similar site! My students have fun and learn easily through the worksheets! I will be iSLCollective's sponsor until I stop teaching! I recommend you do the same.. :)"
  • "I decided to become a Sponsor because I have been very busy with various things and the work other teachers do and share has been invaluable to me, as I don't always have time to create material. I haven't shared any of my work yet (lack of time, need to build more confidence, etc), but I have noticed that some teachers are very generous with their work, and it makes sense to me to contribute financially when possible. I know how long it takes to prepare materials for a class, and I know that if there weren't websites such as this one, my life as a teacher would be a lot harder. ."
  • "I teach middle and high school German and have found ISLCollective to be an amazing and valuable resource when looking for worksheets, practice exercises and general teaching ideas. The fact that teachers from all over the world contribute adds a great international flair. I am repeatedly impressed with the quality of so many of the resources on the site. Donate a few dollars and you will be rewarded with time saved over and over again!"
  • "iSLCollective has helped me quite often with my lessons through easy and free access to other teachers' beautiful work. So I became a sponsor in order to give something back and to ensure this generous and fabulous site will continue to exist for teachers!"
  • "I think iSLCollective is the best place to find and share all type of resources we may need for any type of students,not only children but also teenagers and adults, at any level and ready to use with just a click.. It is really easy to find anything we need and to share activities with other teachers from all over the world, .Becoming a sponsor and supporting ISLCollective is the best way to keep on providing teachers with lots of resources to ease our daily work and to say "thank you very much; keep on working.

Our plans for 2017


We have big plans for 2017. We would like to further develop our new video lesson platform. For example, we'd like to improve class work with video lessons. We would like to replace paper answer sheets and enable you to let your students submit their answers via their mobile phone or tablet while you are showing them the video lesson on the big screen.

We also want to enable you to organize competitions between them, even pairing them up virtually, to motivate them even better.

Besides, we are planning to let you create virtual classes on iSLCollective and add your students to your class, so you can assign them video homework and check if they have done it, and how well they did in this or that video lesson.

FAQ


Q: How does paying work?


You can choose to select a monthly amount to pay every month or you can make a one-time payment. We are happiest for recurring payments, which means you authorize us to automatically charge your Paypal account or bank card every month - until you cancel it. So if you're thinking about whether to pay 15 euros once, or 3-5 euros every month, please choose a smaller, but monthly amount. Of course, we are immensely grateful for one-time payments, as well!

In either case, technically you pay in your national currency, and our bank will exchange it. The currencies indicated in the payment box are there to give you a better idea of how much you are going to pay.

We are glad to answer any questions at info [at] islcollective [dot] com or +36 30 638 7470.



Q: I am considering paying a small amount every month. How does this work?


Paying every month (monthly recurring payment)

If you select "PAY MONTHLY" in the pay box above, it means that you are going to make a payment every month, and with your authorization this amount will be debited (=charged) by iSLCollective automatically on the monthly anniversary of the first payment, until of course, you stop your payments.

You can easily stop your automatic monthly payments by going to the History/support sub menu in your MyPage (click on your avatar in the top right corner). There you will find a link that takes you directly to the page on PayPal.com where you can stop the payments. In case of CCBill (our bank card payment processor), you just have to reply to the payment confirmation email they have sent you, and they will cancel your recurring payment within a few hours.

Recurring payment works both with PayPal and your bank card. Your account will be upgraded to "iSLCollectve Sponsor" right after successful payment.

Q: I'd like to pay 15 dollars, but only once. Can I do that, too?


Paying just once

Sure. If you select "PAY ONCE" in the pay box above, you will be charged your selected amount only once. Your account will be upgraded to "iSLCollective Sponsor" immediately after successful payment.


Q: What payment methods can I choose from?


1. PayPal

In case of using Paypal, the actual payment takes place on PayPal's secure site. If you create a PayPal account, in most countries you can also pay with your debit or credit card.

Experiencing problems when trying with PayPal? Contact us at info [at] islcollective [dot] com, or try the next option.

2. Bank Card

You can also pay securely with your debit or credit card on CCbill.com, the site of our international payment gateway partner. We have chosen CCBill because it is well-known and trustworthy provider for processing electronic payments.

Experiencing problems when trying to donate with your bank card? You can try using your bank card with PayPal, too. For many people it works, as well. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at info [at] islcollective [dot] com.

Q: I need the invoice after my payment made out in the name of my school/company. Where can I give you the invoice details?


1. In case of Paypal payments

As a default, you will be issued an invoice using the name and address you provided in your PayPal account. If you would like us to make out the invoice to a different name and address, you can request that on the next page before you get to Paypa's page to finish the payment.

2. In case of debit/credit card payments

As a default, you will be issued an invoice using the name and address you provide on our payment form (Step 1 of payment: "Confirming your order").
