The Sign in with Google Sign option works for both individual and institution users. If you have a Gmail account, using this option will simplify your CN sign up/in process.
After clicking the Sign Up or Sign In button on CN, you should see the "Sign in with Google" button at the bottom of the pop-up.
If currently you are not logged in any Google accounts in the same browser, click the button, you will be prompted to log into your Google account.
If you are currently logged in your Google account in the same browser, you will be directly taken into CN.
If your Gmail has never been associated with a CN account, you will get a new CN account and be prompted to agree to CN terms:
After accepting the terms, remember to go to your CN profile/ePortfolio page to complete basic information because the Google sign-in approach doesn't give you an opportunity to fill out basic user information (i.e. Country, Field of Study) during the sign-up process.
Please note: if you use your Google account is provided by an institution that has set up Institution Google Sign-in, you will be automatically put into this institution's Network on CN.
