Co-founder Peter Laszlo's Message



Dear colleagues!

We hope that you found a lot of joy in using our materials in 2017! 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!"
  • msilvosa msilvosa
    "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."

    ISLCollective has been one of the best resources over the years for materials for my classroom and I tell everyone I meet about it as a resource for them when they're looking for something new for their classrooms. I am more than happy to be a sponsor of ISLCollective because it provides quality classroom materials from people all over the world. I hope that others will see the value as well and also support such a great site. Thank you, dear authors and ISLCollective, for all your help!

    "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"

    "I became an iSLCollective sponsor because I've found the site to be the 'go-to place' whenever I need exercises or inspiration for my classes. It has NEVER failed me!"

    "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."
  • "I'm a full-time English teacher based in Brussels, Belgium and I've been using iSL Collective's amazing resources for a number of years. The printable materials have proved to be so useful for my classes and the large collection of worksheets means there's always something new to offer my students at very short notice. My teaching has become more dynamic, exciting and varied thanks to this inspirational website. I will continue to sponsor the good work of Peter Laszlo and his team. Great job and thank you."
  • "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."
  • "Hello, I'm an English teacher in Spain. I would like to thank you all the teachers that give us material to use in our classes. We all know how much work there is behind it . Let' s suppport them!"

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").

Dear Kelly,

Skype screen sharing doesn’t able to record your voice via microphone and share the sound of the video at the same time.
You can set to share the one or the another, but it is impossible to set both at the same time.
See the link:
https://forums.techguy.org/threads/skype-audio-issues-when-screen-sharing.1133009/

We suggest the solution of Zoom, being able to share both the voice and the sound of the video, and it’s for free:

I am considering becoming a paying member. Do all the videos allow sound if you I use them on skype or Verbling website during screen sharing? My students can not hear the sound sometimes. I love your site. Thank you.

Dear Sirs,

First of all I'd like to thank you for your great job.

Secondly I have some questions:

How can we pay when we don't have access to penpal or other electronic options in our country due to Iran's sanctions by the USA?

If somebody in Canada wants to pay by Candian dollar, how is it possible to change Pound to Canadian Currency?

Regards.

Dear Peter,
I'm in a position to be able to make another one off payment to the upkeep of your wonderful site.
My bank has changed their online banking system and I no longer have your IBAN /address details to be able to make a payment as I have done in the past.
Please could you send me these details so I can make payment as soon as possible,
Thanks very much

Kedves Üzemeltetők!

Forintban szeretném az oldal támogatni, nem találtam a legördülő menüben a kiválasztásnál. Küldenének egy számlaszámot, vagy bevennék a forintot is a támogatott valuták közé? :-) Így on-line máris tudnék utalni a kártyámról.

Köszönöm!
