SPRING FUNDRAISER 2018

Even the smallest contribution counts! Please make a donation to keep iSLCollective strong in 2018.

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

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 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.

Co-founder Peter Laszlo's Message



Dear colleagues!

We hope that you found a lot of joy in using our materials in 2018 so far! With the help of our current Spring Fundraiser we plan to introduce several exciting features to our Video Section. We are asking you to consider becoming a Supporting Member on iSLCollective. Your help - no matter the amount - makes a huge difference!

We will use the incoming proceeds to maintain and continuously improve the site. 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:
10 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 2018 so far:

1) We rewrote the code of the Worksheet download pages

2) We rewrote the code of the Login/Registration section

3) We tweaked the search results generation logic a bit on the video quiz page. Formerly, you had to select an item from the search filter, then you had to click on the magnifier icon to generate results.From now on, you don’t 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 possible to assign Video Quizes as homework

6) We released several Bug Fixes on both Video and Worksheet sites

7) We provided technical support for our users throughout the first part of the year.

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

Donating is loving, so please show your love by making a donation - whatever you can afford - to keep iSLCollective alive and strong in the rest of 2018.

Bless up,

Peter Laszlo
iSLCollective Co-founder

P.S.
As a special thank you, we will remove all ads from the site for you during your Supporting Membership period.

    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.

    "It is easy to get caught up in how busy we all are and just upload a few resources in return for using the brilliant resources others provide, but then I thought that if we all did this and nothing else? This fantastic website would disappear. So I decided to donate in recognition of the time people have invested and in appreciation of the time it has saved me."
  • nadjamur nadjamur
    "Hi! I chose to sponsor iSLCollective because I think it is a brilliant resource for foreign language teachers who share their worksheets. I use it mainly for teaching children and it is a great help! Nadja"
  • clairlucy clairlucy
    "iSLCOLLECTIVE is my first reflex when I'm looking for a fun worksheet to teach a new aspect of English. Whether it's for kids or adults, a well thought out worksheet is a great way to get a new rule across, and it's fun! I'm hopeless at designing worksheets and so my contribution is by donating and I'm proud to feel a part of such a great website."

    "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. "
  • kifissia kifissia
    "I sponsor iSLCOLLECTIVE because it literally changed my life. At first it was a source of fantastic materials for my students for reinforcement, test review, and fun. Later on I felt challenged by the creativity of the contributors and tried my hand at creating worksheets myself. I was able to unleash my unknown creative powers through worksheet and power point creations. It was through tutorials posted by other members and communication with them that I slowly learned how to make materials. iSL is also a community of teachers worldwide and we often exchange our thoughts and well wishes. In addition the site continually evolves and I believe is the best and most attractive source of teaching materials on the web."
  • "iSL is a great way for teachers to help each other by sharing their resources, but without the hard cash to support the website that resource will be lost. As a private tutor I really appreciate having these worksheets available and have been happy to contribute towards the maintenance costs."
  • "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."
  • "ISLCollective is an amazing resource. The title says it all- collectively we can work more efficiently and provide top notch worksheets to students all over the world. You will be proud to support this easy to use website. Sarah, North Vancouver "
  • "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."

Our plans for 2018


We have big plans for 2018. 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 a particular 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.



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").
