    2b. If you have a Facebook account, you can use it to quickly create a Sapling Learning account. Click “Create an Account”, then “Create my account through Facebook”. You will be prompted to log into Facebook if you aren't already. Choose a username and password, then click “Link Account”. You can then skip to step 3.

    Once you have registered and enrolled, you can log in at any time to complete or review your homework assignments.
