Co-founder Peter Laszlo's Message



Dear colleagues!

This is the time of our traditional Christmas fundraiser. We like to be independent - we don't take government or corporate subsidies. This is why donations really matter. We are asking you now to make a small donation. If all of our users would send us the price of a coffee - or 3 dollars - we would stop this fundraiser today. Your help - no matter the amount - makes a huge difference!

As every year, we will use the incoming proceeds to maintain and continuously improve the site. And we will do so with stunning efficiency that is comparable to that of Wikipedia. The majority of our expenditure is comprised of staff salaries and internet bills:

Technology:
Maintenance, data backup, servers, bandwidth, development, search engine optimization. We serve between 100-150,000 teachers every day so we have to maintain a powerful and reliable back-end infrastructure.

People:
7 iSLCollective staff members and various outside service providers make sure that every aspect of the technological and administrative side of the operations is covered professionally.

Donating is loving, so please show your love by making a donation - whatever you can afford - to keep iSLCollective alive and strong in 2019.

Bless up,

Peter Laszlo
iSLCollective Co-founder

P.S.
As a special thank you, we will remove all ads from the site for one year following your donation.

    "I think the activities uploaded to iSLCollective are wonderful. They're so diverse, so many of them, so good... I decided to become a Sponsor because I consider this website really useful. Since I haven't got either the time or the creativity to prepare such great activities, I wanted to contribute somehow to keep this page going. I encourage everybody to follow my example."

    "I'm teaching German in a primary schools in France - children from 5 to 11 years. Until now I didn't find books and workbooks for this age. On iSLCollective I can find cute worksheets for every theme. I also found many ideas about how to explain things in many different ways. Often I used worksheets in English and translated them into German, because the way of explaining things was so good."
  • MIRNAMORA MIRNAMORA
    "I chose to be a sponsor, because when I was searching very good materials for my students, I found many high quality different worksheets. These are categorized and colourful worksheets. Then, it is easy to find them and funny to work with my students. And the collaboration is accessible for our economies in South America. That's why you should also consider becoming a sponsor."
  • JugeKo JugeKo
    I sponsored iSLCollective because it offers many options for teachers in a variety of languages. I found interesting ideas and saved much time, because the website is logically structured and I can quickly find what I need. I would like to thank the whole iSLcollective team for sharing so many ideas.

Our accomplishments in 2018


1) We launched a new Teaching jobs platform as part of our service for you.

2) We rewrote the code of the Worksheet download pages so now they load much faster. Have you noticed?

3) We tweaked the search results generation logic a bit on worksheet pages. Formerly, you had to select an item from the search filter, then you had to click on the magnifier icon to generate results. You no longer have to click on the magnifier icon, as the results will be generated instantly after you select an item from a search filter.

4) We introduced a Fix for Broken Videos: Sometimes videos are removed from Youtube, either by Youtube itself - on copyright grounds - or by the uploader. Then the video will become “broken” (unavailable) on Youtube, and in turn, as a logical consequence, on iSLCollective, as well.

5) We made it possible to assign Video Quizzes as homework.

6) We added two new task types in video quizzes.

7) We refreshed the design of video quizzes.

8) We added new servers for the site to run smoothly even when the site is seeing 150 thousand visits per day.

9) We provided technical support for our users throughout the year.

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.



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").

You've only posted one worksheet!!!! Our aim is to help those who do not have the time or the skills to prepare worksheets etc. We are not on this site to make money, so perhaps you should post elsewhere.

Dear ChrisHob,

I checked our donation page and could not recreate the problem you mentioned neither in Firefox, nor in Chrome. Does this problem still exist? If so, could you shoot a quick video with your phone and send it to us to [email protected]? Also, it would be useful if you could send us your browser information by going to this website and then copying the link on top of the page and sending it to us, along with the video: https://www.whatismybrowser.com/.

Best,

Good afternoon,
I would like to make a donation, but when I click on "give once", my choice isn't taken into account ("give monthly" remains underlined in green). What should I do ?
Looking forward to your reply,

reply to Kisdobos's post #159

Dear Kisdobos,

I have just payed 10 euros by bankcard. The transaction has been refused by ccbil , but my account has been charged with 10 euros! Besides this I chose to pay ONCE, absolutely not monthly...despite this in the transaction it is written "10 euros for 30 days". I have already contacted ccbill about this.

Please cancel my credit card number as soon as you receive 10 euros, in order to avoid repeated unrequested payments.

Best regards

Cristina

reply to Atwin80days's post #158

I am so sorry about this nuisance. First, let me assure you that you only paid ONCE. We had a technical bug for one day that affected only our invoicing system, so the system made out a bunch of stupid invoices. So it generated a lot of invoices, which made it seem like there were several payments, but there was only one payment on your part. Also, we do not have any bank details of yours. It's either Paypal or our bank card partner, CCBill, which has your information, and their site is very secure.

Thanks ever so much for supporting out mission, and sorry again!

We wish you a happy new year!

Bless up,Peter

My problem seems the same as others. I have received 6 invoices, all different invoice numbers, for $15 USD each. What gives?
