Your website, your way
Dear TES Resources members
We are very fortunate to be the curators of an extraordinary global community of teachers. As such, the TES website has grown and evolved in response to the changing requirements of the teaching profession. It’s your website, so we’re always led by what you need.
With your help, we have already made some significant changes to TES Resources. These improvements ensure that it remains a sustainable and much-loved library of content, but with more choice and flexibility for everyone.
The changes so far
We have improved the search functionality, plus you can now see thumbnails and resource ratings directly in results, so you can find trusted resources even quicker. We have simplified the upload process too, which culminates in a preview of how your resource will appear. Being able to preview the contents of a resource before downloading it was one of the most requested features from our community.
Introducing the TES shop for resources
Many of the teachers who upload content asked for the option to charge for resources. They wanted to be rewarded for their hard work and compensated for the time and effort that goes in to making high-quality content.
So, if you own all the intellectual property and copyright for your resource – including images, audio, video, text extracts and exam syllabuses – and you have the right to use it in a commercial context, then you can now sell your resource for as little as £1.
We know that charging for resources won’t be for everyone, which is why you can continue to share them for free, if you prefer. It’s your choice. Remember, if you are unsure about your options, we’re here to help.
We’d like to hear from you
As with all the changes we make, we want to make sure it’s right for you. So if you have any questions or comments, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
