AWS Educate as an Educator 

Please note that effective July 27th, 2021, all educator functionality has been migrated from AWS Educate to AWS Academy, including Cloud9. Teachers are now required to invite students to AWS Academy for Cloud9 access. Students will then accept the invitation and create their AWS Academy accounts accordingly.
