“You do not have to create a Mailinator address before submitting it to a site, you just randomly choose one and then go check it on the site. There’s no need to enter a password to visit an inbox and therefore no confidentiality but when email is simply a barrier to site entry then Mailinator is a very simple solution”.

“Imagine learning to ride a bicycle. Maybe I give you a lecture ahead of time, and I give you a bicycle for two weeks, then I come back after two weeks, and say, “Well, let’s see.

You’re an 80 percent bicyclist.” So I put a big “C” stamp on your forehead and then I say, “Here’s a unicycle.” As ridiculous as that sounds, that’s exactly what’s happening in our classrooms right now”.
