10 Responses to No email sign ups for a whole class

    Love this trick! I tried using it with blogger and ran into problems though. I think I’ll be using a quick email solution like 10 Minute Mail or Mailinator to solve the same problem. I’m curious about any other solutions.

      10 minute mail will get you a sign up, but it generates horrible email addresses which won’t be much use if you want to be able to log in again after the initial use…

    Cannot get this to work. Gmail will not accept a + sign in the username. What am I doing wrong? Thank you.

    Fantastic solution! I wish I had known about it before my 7th grade class today. Gmail has gotten too smart with recognizing IPs and our class was locked out of creating new accounts temporarily. Have set this up already for my entire 6, 7 and 8th grade classes. Took all of 10 minutes! Thank you.

    Great idea but I’ve found some websites that will not accept an email with a + in it as being vaild for registration. For example, http://www.voicethread.com (which is a good educational tool). So beware of that potential problem.

  8. This is a really good tip especially to those new to the blogosphere.
    Simple but very accurate information… Thank you for sharing
    this one. A must read article!
