Co-founder Peter Laszlo's Message



Dear colleagues!

We hope that you found a lot of joy in using our materials in 2016! 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

    "Me parece una página fantástica que llevo usando al menos tres años, se la recomiendo a cualquier profesor, maestro, alumno para que la utilicen, porque los recurso que se encuentran en ella son estupendos y muy útiles, no me decido a recomendar una actividad en concreto, porque todas son estupendas y desde aquí doy las gracias a todas aquellas personas que trabajan a diario para hacerme el trabajo mas fácil y a mis alumnos más ameno. Thanks a lot"

    "This site is quite helpful and supports me in my German lessons as a teacher. I support this site every time. You can get here a lot helpful things free of cost. I'm such a big fan and thankful for such a page!"

    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!

    "I am an English teacher who was born in Brazil and lives in Germany. In ISLCollective I found a platform where I can download exercises in all three of these languages. That is the reason why I support ISLCollective. Of course, I could download the exercises without paying anything for it, but how long would they be able to offer this service if no one would be paying anything. I'd like to continue to use these exercises and powerpoints and that will only be possible if some of us spend some money. They do a great job - let them continue doing it for us, teachers."
  • "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."
  • "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. =)"
  • "Firstly, Merry Christmas! I have run an English Institute in Cyprus for many years! I was introduced to iSLCOLLECTIVE about 4 years ago and use it constantly. Sometimes I'm looking for a quick extension for class, a game or a worksheet for homework. I never fail to find just what I'm looking for in just a couple of minutes. A huge timesaver! So if you are like me, downloading and too lazy to create your own material, the least you can do is send the team a donation. Be generous; it's Christmas!!"
  • mar mar
    "I really appreciate the worksheets that different teachers prepare and share. Most of the worksheets are amazing (creative, fun, practical, ...). That's why I think I have to help in some way and for that reason I have decided to become a sponsor. I'm really thankful to all of you and I hope one day I can colaborate even more. ISL collective is a fantastic web site and I hope it can go on running. Let's hope that many of you think the same, because then... together we can help!!!! Thanks, thanks and infinite thanks!"
  • "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?"

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").

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!
