An ongoing issue that some teachers face with a number of Web 2.0 applications is that our students have to register to use them. Some students don’t have email addresses, or teachers and students are understandably concerned about privacy and would prefer not to use them. Often, though, if you don’t, you won’t be able to click on the verification message that many web tools send.
I’ve posted several times in the past about free sites that allow you to create very temporary email addresses for this exact purpose.
Here’s another similar service that just began — Mail Catch. It operates just like the others, and seems likes a workable solution to the problem.
