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 But our website grew outdated and needs a rebirth!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 The code of the site is totally outdated, very hard to work with and it's sometimes crumbling under pressure.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

    "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!!! ;-))"

    "Hallo zusammen, iSLCollective ist eine hervorragende Seite mit Material-Ideen für den Deutsch als Zweitsprache Bereich. Hier findet man sehr viel Material, dass man für den Einsteiger-Bereich und auch für fortgeschrittene Lerner sehr gut verwenden kann. Ich empfinde es als einen großen Vorteil, dass fast alle Materialien auch im Word-Format angeboten wird, so dass man es an seinen eigenen Unterricht anpassen kann oder evtl. vorhandene Fehler ausbessern kann. Bei einer derart großen Anzahl an Materialien kann schon mal ein Fehler unterlaufen."
  • "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."
  • "iSLCollective is very helpful and easy to use. I'm so happy that I found it and I wouldn't replace it with any other similar site! My students have fun and learn easily through the worksheets! I will be iSLCollective's sponsor until I stop teaching! I recommend you do the same.. :)"
  • "I decided to become a Sponsor because I have been very busy with various things and the work other teachers do and share has been invaluable to me, as I don't always have time to create material. I haven't shared any of my work yet (lack of time, need to build more confidence, etc), but I have noticed that some teachers are very generous with their work, and it makes sense to me to contribute financially when possible. I know how long it takes to prepare materials for a class, and I know that if there weren't websites such as this one, my life as a teacher would be a lot harder. ."
  • "I teach middle and high school German and have found ISLCollective to be an amazing and valuable resource when looking for worksheets, practice exercises and general teaching ideas. The fact that teachers from all over the world contribute adds a great international flair. I am repeatedly impressed with the quality of so many of the resources on the site. Donate a few dollars and you will be rewarded with time saved over and over again!"
  • "Hi colleagues from everywhere! I'd like to share my ISLCOLLECTIVE experience with you and encourage you to become a sponsor even if for a very modest participation. Operating a website like ISLCOLLECTIVE doesn't come free and I'm sure it would mean a real loss for us all if we couldn't rely any longer on the so great quantity of teaching ressources available on this site. That's why I decided to become a sponsor some time ago, first as a testimony of my gratefulness and secondly to support the great job ISLCOLLECTIVE website operating members are doing for us, teachers from so many countrie . Because sharing is more enriching than just taking don't hesitate to join in. Cheers !"
  • "I have benefited so very much from the iSLCollective over the past several years! Numerous times, when I wanted a new approach to some concept or lesson, I turned to iSLCollective and was able find something that I could either use 'as is' or that I could tailor to fit my needs - or sometimes I just saw someone else's creative idea and it helped me to imagine something of my own. There are some very creative and talented contributors and I like that I could also share some of my ideas for others to use. Please help support this work! Sean"
  • "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"
  • "A good community only works if everyone puts in a little share. Hey, this is actually an awesome project! On the one hand, it's just incredible to find so many useful ressources in one spot, and be able to get them. For free. On the other hand, we kind of get used to this, right? Isn't everything in the web for free, sort of? Wikipedia, facebook, youTube, tons of news sites and other sites? No, it isn't. We just tend to forget that. All these sites put in a tremendous amount of work. Some have found other ways to get money, by monetizing your data for example. Or by having people pay to have their content featured. So, it's advertising, just hidden. Others just have a huge network of people willing to work. For free. And so, because nobody is watching us, we start thinking that it is okay to just download and use that work other people have done. For free. But it isn't. Giving back should be a normal thing. And giving back can have multiple forms. You could ask yourself: i have used this platform. It has helped me. How can i help back? Sometimes, this might mean uploading a paper you have created. Sometimes, it might be dropping a line just to say thank you. Sometimes, it is to just donate what you can afford or think is fair. Because, evidently, all this costs money. There is no such thing as free content. Somebody always pays for it. And it is good to contribute to keep it alive and interest-free. Because otherwise, it will disappear. Or be paid for by people who have something to sell. So, yes, do donate. Because it means being a good person. "

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").

Sounds like a mysterious problem. We talked to a lot of people who can see the previews. I wrote you guys a PM asking for more info.

Bless up,

Peter

P.S. To report problems it is best to use our helpdesk (info at islcollective dot com), because then you get quick answers by our helpdesk colleague. We deal with all the incoming requests via email in our helpdesk system called Zendesk. I am glad to join solving problems, but I have limited time so I check the forum only about once a week.

Hello, I add this message to the 3 previous very recent ones regarding the issue with individual worksheets, when we click on one its content is not displayed. Could you please let us know why. Thank you for your help. Kindest regards

Something wrong is happening. We can't see any previews when we click on an individual worksheet. However, everytime I have a look at the forum I find spam.

Then 3 days ago I received a gmail where islcollective said that they had noticed that a video lesson of mine stopped working because the original video that I had used has been removed from youtube. I can't check because the site is not working properly and I'm sure I have never upload a video lesson!

Please, could any of the member of the team give us an answer? Thank you.
