Can I let my students login using my account?

Absolutely NOT! Do NOT let your students log in under your account to do their writing assignment. There are several reasons why this is not a good idea:

  1. Students logged into your account can modify your email address and password - effectively commandeering your entire account
  2. Students logged into your account can view other students' writings
  3. Students logged into your account can modify, and even delete other students' writings.


When you create a writing assignment for your students, each of your students should create their own writing account. This is extrememly easy, takes only a few seconds, and does not require them to provide any personally identifiable information (they have the option of entering an email address, but this is not required.)
