+<P>The idea is that you will supply the key to authorised
+ people using another means like private email, snail mail,
+ on the phone or even verbally in a face to face class.
+<P>If this password "gets out" and you have unwanted people
+ enrolling, you can unenrol them (see their user profile page)
+ and change this key. Any legitimate students who have already enrolled will
+ not be affected, but the unwanted people won't be able
+ to get back in.
