Answers

How much does an iYearbook digital yearbook cost the school?

This depends on the school. The school can choose to pay for every student. We offer deep per user discounts when this option is selected. If a school chooses to let individual students pay, they are only charged a one-time setup fee of $250.

Do we have to sign an agreement?

We typically require schools to sign a term agreement. This agreement defines our legal responsibilities to one another. The agreement must be signed by someone authorized to enter into agreements on behalf of the school. This is typically a school administrator.

How much does an iYearbook digital yearbook cost for students?

iYearbook digital yearbooks pricing starts at $15 per student. The price goes up throughout the year until the full price of $25 is reached.

Will an iYearbook digital yearbook detract from my yearbook sales?

No, you can choose to sell an iYearbook digital yearbook only to those who have purchased a printed yearbook already. So instead of detracting, iYearbook digital yearbooks can actually increase sales.

I'm already busy, isn't this just more work?

Yes, it is more work. We have done everything in our power to make the iYearbook digital yearbook creation as painless as possible. The required workload to complete the iYearbook digital yearbook should be minimal, and in some cases help reduce the time required for the printed yearbook. The value the iYearbook digital yearbook will bring to the yearbook program, the school, and the students for years to come is worth the extra effort.

Will the site be secure?

Yes, our servers are secure. Any connection to the server will be secure, and any information that is deemed worthy of being secured will also be encrypted.

Can students upload their own content?

Allowing students to add their own content is a decision that each school can make for themselves. If your school chooses NOT to allow this feature, students will still have access to other features such as iSignatures and the message board, but will only have access to view content added by the yearbook staff. Allowing students the opportunity to contribute to the iYearbook digital yearbook may seem like a lot of extra work, but it really isn't. iSignatures are not monitored because they can only be viewed by the person to whom they are sent.

How will you keep students from sharing passwords?

We have built an ip tracker in the system. If a student shares their password with other students, we will be notified that their account has duplicate logins. The first instance the student will be issued a warning. Any further infractions will be cause to disable that student's account.

Who collects the money for the accounts?

Students access and pay for their accounts directly through iYearbook. When a user pays, they will be given instant access.

Can students sign¬Ě an iYearbook digital yearbook?

Yes. iSignatures work a little different, but the concept is the same. Any student, regardless of whether they purchase an iYearbook digital yearbook or not, can sign other users yearbooks. That message will only be visible to the student that received the message. The great part is that even if a student doesn't purchase an iYearbook digital yearbook right away, they can still have their iYearbook digital yearbook signed. Those signatures will be waiting for them to pay the access fee. Any message can be deleted by the recipient.

What happens if iYearbook Inc. goes out of business?

We plan on hosting iYearbook digital yearbooks forever, but if we happen to lose that capability, schools and students will be able to create a pdf of the entire yearbook.

What if I have ideas that would improve iYearbook digital yearbooks?

Everyone's ideas and suggestions for features are welcome. We do not offer compensation for ideas or suggestions unless a contest is announced.

Does an iYearbook digital yearbook break any privacy laws?

No. The information contained within the iYearbook digital yearbook is classified as directory information¬Ě and can be hosted online. We keep all information in the iYearbook digital yearbook secure, password protected, and available only to students from that school at that time. No one else will be permitted to view the iYearbook digital yearbook unless the school purchases a public license and chooses to make the information public.

Can parents and/or friends leave a special message for their child?

Yes. Parents and friends can leave messages if the yearbook adviser wants to allow it. The person that creates the message can choose whether that message is public to anyone viewing the iYearbook digital yearbook, or private for just the student for whom they leave it.

Can we create custom iYearbook digital yearbook pages?

Yes, we have simplified this process so anyone can have a custom page. You do not need to know any kind of coding.

Do iYearbook digital yearbooks have a curriculum?

Yearbook advisers already have alot on their plate. We want iYearbook digital yearbooks to interfere as little as possible. We may create a curriculum in web page design in the future, but we currently are not pursuing this option.

Who do we contact if we have a problem or need anything?

The schools will always contact their account manager. Any issue that needs to be escalated further will be escalated to iYearbook Inc. by the account manager. Schools will also be given contact information for iYearbook Inc.'s quality control in their welcome packet. If a school feels uncomfortable with their account manager or has an issue about the account manager, they can call the quality control number to speak with someone else.

Do students need to purchase each year's iYearbook digital yearbook separately?

Yes. Much like a print yearbook, a student will need to purchase a new version of the iYearbook digital yearbook each year. They will have indefinite access to the version they purchase.

Can parents login to see the iYearbook digital yearbook?

Yes, but they will have to do it using their student's password. We may offer a future option that allows parents to access only their student's portion of the iYearbook.
