    9  1. ['''Optional'''] '''emaill [maito:help@geni.net help@geni.net] ''': to let us know you will be using GENI. This will let us help you along the process. We '''strongly recommend''' this, if this is your first time using GENI
    10  1. '''Access to GENI Portal''' If you are planning to use the [https//portal.geni.net GENI Portal] in your class you should figure out how you and your students will get access to GENI. Read the SignMeUp page for more details.
    11  1. '''[wiki:SignMeUp#a2b.CreateaGENIProject Create a Project']''' for your event. Although you might already have a project we recommend that you use a separate project for your class/tutorial. This will make the account management easier. We also '''strongly recommend''' to add an expiration date for your project. The expiration date should not be right after your event in case the students want to experiment for a bit after, but it should be close. We suggest to use ''1 week'' after your event.
    12  1. '''Add''' any other instructors or teaching assistants to the project as Admins. This will allow them to help with the management of the project and with debugging problems with the students.   
    13  1. If you haven't already, you and any other instructors or teaching assistants should read through the slides (including the notes) and '''work through the exercise''' and let us know if you have any questions.

    1415 1. '''Choose exercises and test them''' We maintain a [wiki:GENIEducation/SampleAssignments list of tutorials/assignments] that you can use out-of-the-box. If you decide to use your own exercises we suggest you start at least a month before the date you are planning to use these new assignments.
    15  1. '''Decide what machines the student should use'''. Depending on the exercises and the event

    18 === Approximately one week in advance ===
    19  1. Invite attendees to '''[http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/SignMeUpPortal login to the portal]''' and request an account from the GENI IdP if necessary.  This may require some manual intervention, so it's important that people do this early.

    21  1. Make a worksheet for each attendee

    25  1. A few hours before hand, '''bulk add attendees''' to the project (doing this in advance makes the exercise go more quickly)
    26  1. At the exercise, add any stragglers who haven't joined the project by having them clicking the "Request to Join a Project" button on the home page.  Then you are one of the project Admins should manually add each of these users to the project.
    27  1. At the exercise, please distribute:
    28     a. one worksheet to each attendee (or pair of attendees) doing this exercise.  The worksheet does three things:
    29        i. it helps attendees identify the data (and not the control plane interface) which they will bring down during the exercise
    30        i. it ensures slice names are unique
    31     a. a [attachment: hardcopy of the instructions]
