     16=== GENI Portal Account Instructions ===
     18This pre-work is to test if you are able to log into the GENI portal using the username and password you use at your home institution.  If it turns out this username and password does not work, we will create an account for you.   (Note: GENI never sees your home institution username and password.  For more information on how this works, see
     19  1. Go to and click the big orange "Use GENI" button.
     20  2. On the institution chooser page, select your home institution.  The text entry field will autocomplete institutions if you type in a few characters. Or you can choose the "pick from list" option and find your institution in the drop down box. [[BR]]
     21    IF your institution does not appear here, '''STOP''' and and fill out this form:
     22  3. Click "Continue".  You should be redirected to your home institution's login page.
