Re: [K12OSN] "Guest" accounts



For the general use accounts, set up accounts based on the computer not 
user.  This way, when they sit down at computer #4 for instance, the login 
would be computer4 and whatever password you set.  Make all the general 
accounts use the same password.  Then the ones that have their own 
personal account, can use their own login.

If there's 20 computer in the lab, the usernames would be computer1 
computer2 computer3 and etc and you could use a simple password like 
ComputerLab! (caps and ! included for cracking avoidance.)

Then you mark the general usernames and passwords on the from of the 
computer.  This way, no matter who sits down there, they can use the 
computer, including the ones with their own account.
