How to force students to change their email
 

We create student accounts by uploading them with randomly generated fake email addresses. Students are asked to change the fake email to their own.

However, there are always some who ignore it.

Is there a way to force them to change their email?

I think.... if you create users *without* an email address the user will be taken to their profile page when they log in.

Great! I thought emails were required to upload users. I will give it a try with new students. Thanks!

Thanks anyway. I wonder if there is another way to have students change the fake email.

There is a way.  Having the students take part in an activity with access restriction on the fake email address will make them change the email. It's not an ideal solution but better than none.

How can you tell the difference between a fake email address and a real one?

The student accounts were bulk uploaded with fake emails, which they were supposed to change to their own email. Some failed to do it for one reason or another. The fake emails have the same domain, such as @fakemailll.com.
