Students submitting observations to AAVSO

I have a group of high school students undertaking light curve photometry of a number of RR Lyrae stars using advanced CCD equiped robotic telescopes and processing their data using differential photometry software techniques. Past experience has shown the results to be of high standard.

Presuming that such data is useful, I'm after some guidance on how their observations are best shared or submitted to AAVSO, specifically:

- uploading observations under a single login (ie, my account) versus some other mechanism. 

- any preferences that may exist with respect to how individual RR Lyrae light curve datasets are uploaded / shared via AAVSO.

I've undertaken numerous professional research projects, but am relatively new to the mechanics and requirements of AAVSO on-line. Any help with specific processes will be very much appreciated. 

Many thanks in advance,
