Educator Guide - How to Signup for an Education Account
Welcome to TinkerHost! All educators may create a Education Instructor account. However, you must be employed by an institution, and be able to provide the name and address of the institution you work for during the signup process. TinkerHost may use external verification services to verify the information you provide.
If you cannot provide sufficient information during the signup process, email us at educator[@]tinkerhost.net, we will be happy to help!
