Your tech saavy will really shine once you complete this task. You’ll be creating sub-accounts in Google Mail to create email accounts for students in your class. For these accounts you don’t need student names you just need a generic name (i.e. – smithclassroom @ gmail.com) to start. Follow these directions to get going:
- Log in to Google Mail with the account you created previously
- Click Settings in the upper right hand corner and then click the Accounts tab
- Click Add another email address link and enter a new email address based off of the main email address ([email protected]). For instance, Student 1′s email would be firstname.lastname@example.org. Adding the “+1″ to the end of the email name is what differentiates this new account from all others.
- Continue adding sub-accounts until you have enough for the students in your class. Note: think about the potential growth of your class. If you don’t have enough accounts, you can go back and add more later.
