TIME FOR CHANGE 2020

iSLCollected turned 10! Yaaay! But our website grew outdated and needs a rebirth! We need your help for the next 10 successful years!

We're a small team dedicated to helping you teach better. Hover over our photos to see who we are.

My name's Istvan Jaromi, and I am a backend developer. I code new features and fix bugs.

I am Szelina Szigeti, and I am a frontend developer for iSLCollective. That means I am working on how things look on the site.

I am Benedek Princz, co-founder of iSLCollective and Chief Technical Officer (CTO) who manages our developer team.

I am Peter Laszlo, co-founder of iSLCollective and head of product development. I am in charge of coming up with new feature ideas, designing them and overseeing their production, like our new video lessons platform.

I am Adam Laszlo, also a co-founder of iSLCollective. I am the CFO, and my main job is to manage our legal, financial and human resources matters.

My name's Zsuzsa Kiss. I am your helpdesk assistant. If you have any questions or problems, you can reach me at info [at] islcollective [dot] com, and I'll be glad to help.

I am Szabolcs Simonyi, backend developer. Just like Istvan, I code new features and do bug fixes.

 

Co-founder Peter Laszlo's Message

 

TIME FOR CHANGE - WE NEED YOUR HELP! 

 

 

 

This is our Christmas Fundraiser and we need you more than ever! We turned 10 years old. Yaay! Our community grew very big, almost 150,000 teachers daily, but we have big problems. The code of the site is totally outdated, very hard to work with and it's sometimes crumbling under pressure. :( We keep patching the code year after year, but this can't go on like this anymore. 

We must begin a new era! 

So we've started rebuilding the website from zero. The new site will be much more reliable and user-friendly in 2020. This is a scary HUGE UNDERTAKING - the biggest and most expensive we've ever dared - and we need your help to finish this work. 

Let's lay the foundations together for the next 10 years. Your help, no matter the amount, makes a huge difference. If everyone reading this message would donate $3, this fundraiser would be over in an hour. Please take a minute to send us the price of a coffee. As an immediate benefit, you will see NO ADS as a supporter. 

Thank you! 

Peter Laszlo, iSLCollective co-founder

    "iSLCollective provides incredible resources for anyone working with EAL/EFL learners. The quality of the products on offer is second to none and, as an EAL teacher, I always use their invaluable services whenever I need to find that special worksheet or other resource that I can't seem to find elsewhere. Become a sponsor now and you won't regret it!"

    "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."

    "Of all the different sites I have explored and used, iSLCollective is the only one I can completely depend on for finding exactly what I need, every time. The topics are varied and all levels are available. The choice is outstanding and the quality of the worksheets are unsurpassed. Furthermore they are a wonderful source of inspiration for planning my classes. I am extremely grateful for this site. I think that the privilege of having such a site available to us teachers warrants our sponsorship. It is a constructive way to share our work with others as well as helping each other out. I highly recommend that every one considers sponsoring this excellent site. "

    "I sponsor iSLCollective because I really love the worksheets, they are colourful, challenging and offer many opportunities to teach mixed ability classes. Thank you so much, I think your website is one of the most valuable tools I know!"
  • "iSLCollective is like a coursebook to me. But it's even better, because it's made by real teachers who know what works in class and what doesn't. And it gets bigger all the time. So if it helps me to be a good teacher and prepare nice and varied lessons - why not pay for it? Compared to books it's cheap, because I can pay as much as I want. I think it is important to have websites like this and pay a little bit for it."
  • "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. =)"
  • "I decided to be a sponsor of iSLCollective because it is very useful website. Actually, I used a lot of your ideas to help my ESL students. I used your handouts as wel. Thanks!!"
  • "ISLCollective has been an asset in getting teaching materials for my private school here in Mexico. Consider iSLCollective and give them an opportunity to keep up the good work. Benoit Simard"
  • "iSLCOLLECTIVE ist eine super Sache! Ich nutze die Seite öfter und ich unterstütze sie auch gerne. Für wenig Geld bekommt man hier viel Leistung!"
  • "Nowadays, being a teacher is difficult because of the different sources children use such as iPad, PC, Tablet, Mobile Phone, but in my opinion they don't have to forget writing and have to improve it so, if besides we give them work sheets they'll improve their knowledge seeing what they write and noticing when they make a mistake. Of course they can do exercises online, but when they will have to rubbered the same word two or three times they finally will have learn it. Moreover ISL COLLECTIVE worksheets are funny and include every grammar and vocabulary so you can always found one which fit with your class."

Time for Change in 2020

 

iSLCollective  is seeing 150,000 users at peak times, which is enormous traffic! At least for a website that was coded in 2009 with no expectations of growing so wildly popular. We simply didn't design it for this kind of traffic. The site is sometimes crumbling under the heavy load, and every attempt at optimization seems like a drop in the ocean. 

The code has been patched zillion times over the past ten years, and things got a bit chaotic by now. Any new development takes too much money, and we generate a lot of software bugs along the way, that we fix over the course of months. This makes your life difficult, and makes us want to give you a real professional service next year.

This is why we started rebuilding the website from scratch. Quite a scary undertaking. We need your support to finish the work. We are positive that together we can create a much better website, which is more reliable and more user-friendly. 

This community deserves a website like any other professional community. Let's make it happen together!

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").

It would be a good idea to have "Coronavirus" or "Covid-19" as a vocabulary topic when uploading, wouldn't it? There are many worksheets on this topic and it would be easier for downloaders. :)

I can't see the previews nor the comments of my worksheets and I can't edit, delete them either. It is not possible to use the upvote or downvote button and I'd like to red-flag a couple of ads. on the front page but it's again impossible. I sent a message to [email protected] two days ago.
