Thanks Daniel.

 

It wasn't an easy decision but made for good reasons. Not just for costs alone (and despite my own caution regarding "profit" in education) but believing that if we do pay for something, we'll value it more. 

 

I kept it a very small fee intentionally. Hopefully that will garner support and others helping pay for the community.

 

I'll also say that anyone who can't make payment for any reason and really needs access - they can just get in touch and they'll have access.

Hi David,

It looks like I became supporter number six, which happens to be my lucky number.  I haven't been using the site much but realize that it is doing lots of good for the community and I hope it continues to do so.  I know only too well how much time it takes to commit to doing a service for others, and I applaud you for your dedication and commitment.

One thing I would like to ask about is whether you have the ability to host educational blogs similar to what I have been doing with some classes using Ning.  They changed to a fee based system, and I purchased the reasonably priced educational option which unfortunately has been stripped to the bare bones of features.  The plus version is a bit steep with a monthly fee of around $50.  I wonder if there is a better option through your site or perhaps another you can recommend.

Ken, 

 

Thanks for the good cheer - always appreciated.   I try my best, give what I got... but yeah, I don't think many really appreciate fully what is available, done etc... such is life. It's about moving, not sitting still and thinking about it all. 

 

good question.    Actually, there are some options elsewhere but also here.  At least 3 teachers teacher their classes here through blogs. They "friend" all their students and then set their group or blog to only friends. Therefore, everyone else doesn't see that activity at all. It is all invisible to only their friends/class or me, the admin (I know, some days there are MANY blog posts).  So here is possible, even just a group. Your students could even just post with one id/pw for the whole class. We accept multiple log ins. 

 

Elsewhere, I think Edmodo is the best for education and social media.  There are other groups available but as you say, they cost or have prohibitive fees. If you want a full blown LMS for teaching your student then I recommend Graham's http://edu20.org   super and thought the blogs aren't the best, has everything and a solid free component. 

 

My public blog is on edublogs and they do have good plans too. Check them out but they may be a little too "full" in a sense for students. Posterous is another, blog only option. Easy for students just to make a blog (or a teacher). Weebly is my number 1 though, for quick pages and a quick website. 

 

Sorry, burning the late oil with people in Phillipines doing development work for my other projects.... so not linking the above. 

 

Appreciate the support and we'll see how it works out with memberships. I am committed to letting everyone know how many have paid etc... that's what a community is. 

 

David

David,

You are busy now as am I but I will get back to you on this after doing a bit of research.  The ideal would be to bring my current 14 member class which includes me into your system as it is also Ning based and students are used to the format, etc.  I really wonder if I can virtually transfer in my Ning site or convert it to one within your network as you described in your message?  Would I have to start from scratch and set up a whole new group with invitations, etc.?  It is tempting, and I know a few other teachers at school are not happy with the changes that took place when we converted over to the new system this year.  Later.   Ken

David, It's a true pleasure to support your site which has been extremely useful to my students over the years. I hope you get a ton of supporters for your new "Public Site + Supporters" model. All the best,

Mike

Mike,

 

thanks a lot and will send a message to "supporters" soon - as well as think through harder the process.  It is an experiment in progress and these first months seeing how it goes. Don't want to close off things but at the same time, also create some value for supporters.   Now back to the homework and study to get ontop of the spammer problem - I know you understand how this battle  is never won!

I have followed the instructions of the screencast to become a supporter but I haven't been able to get access to the "application form".  Is everything O.K. in the page?, Or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks very much for this page, It's full of valuable resources.

Elena,

 

Sorry about that.  You have to be signed in and then go back to this page, the Supporter's page and  click on a supporter's page  - then the pop up should appear and just follow the instructions. 

 

I have noticed some problems logging in. I think if this happens (keeps asking you to sign in), clear your browser's cache. Instuctions here , depending on your browser.  But I'm looking into a way to make this a little more "clear". I set it up when we were a private (always signed in) community. Thanks!

Where do I have to click in order to make the payment?  It doesn't seem to matter where i click.

Hi Barry, 

Sorry for any confusion and my delayed reply. Been traveling and just swamped.   

Are you logged in?  If logged in, any page that is for supporters will give you a popup screen. Just click PAYMENT on that light box and you can make payment and get access. Try clicking the Support EFL Classroom 2.0 above. Or THIS PAGE only for supporters. 

I'll be announcing some changes to the supporter program in a post today.  We are getting a good level of support, not amazing but enough to keep us paying for the community. But the Lessons in a Can receive great comments from supporters and are the pearl for which most upgrade.

Hi there, i think there must be a problem.  I am logged in.  I have clicked that link but it does not take me to anything where I can then click PAYMENT.  It just takes me to a different page with no payment option.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Ah Barry, my mistake!  Just checked and you don't get the payment page because you are already a supporter! Just click on the Supporter tab at the top and access the materials. I upgraded you previously and have done so for quite a few active users here - part of my policy that those who actively contribute will get upgraded.  I guess my bad, I just didn't inform you - sorry for the confusion.
