Remember that you will cannot access this until we have activated your account. Use the login and password in the email you receive from us.



Note: if you have an unresolved problem, contact Austhink directly.  Don't contact your instructor; there is generally nothing s/he can do except refer the problem to us.

I haven't received my email from Austhink. What should I do?

If you have waited an appropriate time (see above), email us at  Include some explanation in your email. We will respond ASAP.  If you made an online payment, forward your email receipt.

I can't log in OR my password doesn't work.

There are two main explanations for this:

  • The password is case-sensitive.  One common reason people think their password doesn't work is that they make a mistake entering it in. 
  • When you first access the Reason! Online Materials website, you will be presented with a login box.  THIS IS NOT YOUR CHANGE-PASSWORD BOX.  You have to log in with your existing password before changing your password.

If you are sure you have a genuine problem with your password, send an email to  A new password can be created and sent to you.
