More Temporary Email Addresses

| 5 Comments

I’ve written before about two services that provide temporary email addresses.  These are great for students who can use them to register for some of the Web 2.0 services that require a valid email address.  Those addresses expire after fifteen minutes or so.

Now there’s another site that allows you to have an email address that lasts for seven days.  It’s called Dodgit.

I’ve placed the link at the top of my Examples of Student Work page along with the other two temporary email services.

  1. HA! Thanks Larry….now I know where I got the list of temporary email addresses I’ve acquired over the last few months from…

  2. Thanks for the comment, Tom.

    I’d also encourage people to check out Tom’s blog, “Seeking The Wisdom of the Ages Through Our Students Eyes,” at http://tnturner.edublogs.org/.

    It’s one I read regularly.

  3. Interestingly enough, all three of the sites you speak about are blocked from our district computers. Somebody must have found out about a way to use them for purposes that violate the Acceptable Use Policy in some fashion.

  4. Barry,

    It’s also possible that the filter only thinks it violates the policy. For example, our district filter at one point blocked Professor Garfield, the great joint site developed by Ball State University and the creator of Garfield the Cat, because it mistakenly labeled it as a pornographic site. The tech folks fixed it after I brought it to their attention.

    It’s also unfortunately true, though, that some sites that would be great for ESL students can be used inappropriately by others.
