Instructor Information

Google changes the process used to create accounts from time to time. Currently, if you use the CAPTCHA there doesn’t seem to be a requirement for a verification number. However, Google may limit the number of accounts that you can create from a single IP address, so we recommend that when possible students create an account prior to coming or that instructors have dummy accounts that they can use for instructional purposes. All email providers are similar and change their requirements at will.
