Peter Laszlo

Dear Colleague!

Thank you for doing your best working longer hours, trying out new digital tools like our interactive video quizzes, and making many sacrifices for your students. Don't give up! iSLCollective is here with you in this fight. We are working around the clock to keep the site running and make it useful for online teaching (try out our new "Fill" feature that makes our worksheets fillable online). Our team and servers are under a lot of pressure, but with your help we can keep things going. Please donate the price of a coffee to show your support!

Thank you!

    "I get a lot of inspiration and useful material for my German classes, so I think it's worth helping through sponsoring."
  • 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."

    I sponsored iSLCollective because it is a lifesaver. Sometimes, I have the idea in my mind and I need something to help me explain it to my students. When I go on iSL, I either find exactly what I need or something that I can modify to meet my needs. Thank you all for all your help and keep up the good work!

    "Hello, I have been a user of iSLCollective for a couple of years. I often find useful worksheets for my students. For me it is a huge help to be a member of iSLCollective and I think it is important to support Peter Laszlo and his colleagues, because it takes them a lot of work to operate the site and everybody can use this amazing resource for free. Thank you so much!!! ;-))"

    "I have been working with children from early learning up to 9th grade, teaching German as a second language. I became a sponsor because discovering islcollective really made a difference for my teaching prep and also allowed for more diversification in the classroom as I could make use of the great variety of teaching materials. In addition, I learned from the materials and became more creative in designing my own lesson plans. So, thanks a lot to the site and all the teachers who upload their worksheets. "
  • "For me, sponsoring iSLCollective was an opportunity to support a thriving community of engaged users and contributors. I personally found plenty of very useful materials and, in some cases, almost perfectly suited for my online classes. What I appreciate is the versatility of materials provided by experienced teachers and tutors of English. By becoming a sponsor I wanted to say 'Thank you' for their time, great ideas, creative approach to teaching and the will of sharing these with the rest of the community."
  • "iSL is a quick source for me whenever I want to download fun, quality materials created by fellow teachers, because I did not have the time to create my own materials. It is an endless source of worsheets and activities and I wouldn't want to miss it. Sponsoring iSL with a few euros means that the website can continue to support itself and I can continue to give my students meaninful and attractive handouts to enhance my teaching. =)"
  • "Es stehen da schnell und kostenlos viele tolle Materialien für den Unterricht zur Verfügung. Man findet da sowohl die Aktivitäten für ein paar Minuten als auch etwas "Gründliches" für Fortgeschrittene, ohne selbst immer neue Bücher zu kaufen oder immer zu "basteln". Aber alles kostet was. Wenn es geht, sollte man jährlich ein paar Euro spenden."
  • "I use this web site from time to time to give my students extra work. I profit from my colleague's effort and I hope someday they may profit from mine. But until this day comes, we have to take care of this site. There is a great team here making it possible that we can readily access loads of brilliant stuff for us and our students. As you know, all this is and will only be possible if all of us make an effort and contribute. Any help will be welcomed, and they need us to keep the web. So, won't we sacrifice a coffe or two and help them?"
  • "Just think: most of you are teachers or people who get a benefit from ISL Collective. You would probably ask your students the same thing: do the right thing! And we will be doing the right thing if we recognise the effort of those who make available this amazing collection of activities. they save us time and work. Isn't that worth anything? Would you work for free? Your help makes a whole lotta difference! Thanks!!"

Crisis relief

We took action right away when the COVID 19 crisis started unfolding. What we realized first was that our worksheets were not prepared for a global demand for online teaching. What can your student do with a Word document that has no type field to type or where the checkbox is just an embedded image? Of course, if there is a will, there is a way and your student can work around this in a word processor, but we decided that this was just too clumsy and unreasonable to ask from a student. So we had this idea of putting our worksheet thumbnails on a separate page and simply put a drawing tool next to it. Simple, but handy! We call it the Fill feature. Your student can send you the link of the filled document, then you can put your corrections on it online, and send it back to them. With more than 10 thousand worksheets filled online in a few weeks since its realise, it seems you've found this new feature useful! We keep improving the usability. Next up:  making it work on mobile devices, too.

Second, we responded to the new pandemic-induced remote teaching situation by reconfiguring our servers and optimizing them to take this heavier load that we started experiencing with masses of teachers flocking to the site who never used iSLCollective before, but now needed resources to use in a new world where there are fewer contact hours, and students more assignments that they can work on independently. Our servers are under a very hard pressure, but we monitor them constantly and keep adding extra server power when necessary.

Third, we increased our helpdesk capacity to be able to answer all your questions. Feel free to write to info [at] islcollective [dot] com if you encounter a software bug on iSLCollective, experience a site slowdown or have any other issues using the site.

We were happy to see so many of you try out our interactive video quizzes that we are very proud of. A lot of teachers are starting to realize how useful these Youtube-based popup quizzes are in distance education. In case you didn't know, you can also have our little robot generate your own grammar or vocab quiz in minutes or you can create a custom quiz from scratch. Just bring a Youtube video URL and let us do the work for you. You can then work with the finished popup quiz in class or you can assign it to your students as homework, and overview their scores and answers on iSLCollective.

Our teacher trainers, Anna and Jo, do webinars and roll out fresh video tutorials every couple of day to show you best practices about using popup video quizzes in your teaching and to give you general teaching methodology tips tha you can try out in your next class. Check out  our Youtube channelto watch past episodes. Also, let us know if there is any topic you want us to cover in forthcoming episodes.

So this sums up our pandemic relief efforts. If you are happy with how the iSLCollective Team's crisis response, we are asking you to donate the price of a coffee to show your support.


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").

Hello ISLCollective Team. I do wish to donate, but I'm not comfortable with using PayPal (plus I'd have to sign up for an account and figure out how to use it - too busy). I also don't feel comfortable using a bank card (I'm in Japan, doubt it would work anyway?). I'd be willing to use my prepaid credit card, since it allows me to use my real credit card without releasing its details - I take online security extremely seriously (my degree is in tech). Let me know if I can donate that way.
