CN is now offering ePortfolio free to all K-12 and higher education institutions. To support this initiative, the Institution Gateway page is created for members of a given university, school, or organization to go to and sign up their CN account. The page URL should be distributed by the institution and is typically the institution name or acronym paired with .thecn.com, for example, iu.thecn.com. Institutions may require members to use their institution email or passcode to sign up. Please see the below example:
Users can also log in on an Institution Gateway page. Or, based on the institution's request, sign up can be disabled, making log in the only option.
