To require email login, choose ON and select the email account type you want them to use. To let them join anonymously, click OFF and they will be assigned an avatar and a nickname.

Please note that if you turn off the requirement for student logins (making login anonymous), you will not be able to retrieve students' names from this and following Sessions. To assure that you see names in future Sessions, turn this Setting ON. Learn more about login settings.
