Making up dummy or multiple email accounts for students

If you want to sign up your students for a web 2.0 application and this requires an email account, simply use your free gmail account

GMail

You can register different unique account names numerous times using your own e-mail address by doing this:

emailaddress+1@gmail.com
emailaddress+2@gmail.com
emailaddress+3@gmail.com
emailaddress+4@gmail.com
emailaddress+5@gmail.com

Carey Pohanka suggested that you could use the student’s name instead of a number, and then you won’t have any problems identifying them

emailaddress+student name@gmail.com

I didn’t know that trick, many thanks

All activity the websites under these accounts will be sent to your original, derivative e-mail (i.e. emailaddress@gmail.com). This way, you’ll be able to give each student a unique application account, while also being able to monitor their account’s activity.

  1. Can I use student email addresses given by NSW Dept of Education and Training plus this to give them access to the edublog I have set up or do they have to be paying supporters to be added
