Using an email address is optional for students on Edublogs.org when their accounts are created using:

If the email field is left blank, the student account is created using our Edublogs ‘no email’ which looks like this no_email+08006568001556572864@edublogs.org

This option is used if your school provided student email accounts aren’t allowed to receive emails from outside domains or your students don’t have email accounts.

Reset Student Passwords

With My Class, a teacher can reset the password of the students’ accounts if their accounts were created using our no email option.

Here is how to reset their passwords:
1. Go to Users > All Users in the class blog dashboard
2. Click the Edit link underneath the username that you want to reset the password for

Edit User

  • The edit option is only visible under student users attached to our no email option.
  • You can’t reset the password if their user account is attached to an email address.  The student needs to use the lost password link with their email address.
  • Contact Edublogs support if you need your existing student user accounts changed to our no email option.

3.  Scroll down the page and click on Generate Password.

4. Click on Generate Password.

Generate password

5.  The password reset window loads with an automatically generated password.

Automatically generated password

You can either use this automatically generated password or replace it with your own password.

The automatically generated password from above has been replaced with own password in the example below.

New Password

  • If the password is too weak you will be asked to confirm the use of a weak password.
  • Using a combination of letters, numbers and symbols makes it hard for others to guess your password.
  • The strength indicator provides an indication of how good your password choice is!

5.  Click Update User.
