Create Developer Org

Hello,
I am a Trailhead Newbie. How do I know if I have already created my Developer Org? When I click on Connect To Your Developer Edition it gives me the option to Log In With Developer Edition or Create a New Developer Edition; when I click on Connect To Your Developer Edition it asks me to authorize Salesforce Developer to access my information, basic data, etc; when I click on Create a New Developer Edition, it asks me to enter a Username, but when I use my current log in e-mail, it says it's already being used so not sure if I've created a Developer Org already? I appreciate your help!

Thanks everyone! That was very helpful. I do have another question or two; 1) Can/should each user in our Org who would use Trailhead create their own Developer Edition using their login? 2) Are there any trials/modules, etc., that would be helpful for our sales rep Users? We are trying to get our sales rep users to engage more with Salesforce and would like to use Trailhead as a fun way to gain adoption. Again, many thanks for your time and input. Chelsea

Hi Chelsea,

Answer for Question (1) Its always recommend to create a own DE Org for Trailhead. Hence ask your Sales Reps to register one using the below URL:

https://developer.salesforce.com/

Click on the Signup and register one, so that every one can do their own Challenges.

What is a Developer Edition?
The Developer Edition (DE) environment is where you develop Force.com applications for free. This account is free for life and can be used to complete Trailhead challenges. Learn more about Developer Editions here. If you don’t have one, signup here.

Should I create a new Developer Edition for Trailhead?
Yes, we recommend that you start with a fresh Developer Edition (DE) when completing Trailhead challenges since existing org configurations might conflict with changes you make for a challenge. You can use the same DE for all challenges. Create a new DE by signing up here. 
NOTE: If you already have a Developer Edition, you will need to choose a new username.

Answer for Question (2) They can concentrate on below trails:

(3) Business User Trail

Thank you, Amit. So, just to clarify, each user would have their own unique Developer Edition that would be connected to their own user login? I just want to be sure Users aren't sharing Developer Editions. Second, you say that you start with a fresh Developer Edition when completing Trailhead challenges? I am confused. So each time I complete each challenge I have to create a new Developer Edition but then you say you can use the same DE for all challenges? Can you explain this more? My apologies, I need to be clear on this as I am going to be training others how to use this. Thanksa again!

1) Yes that is required their own unique Developer Edition for each user. So that they will never override there changes.
2) Creating a developer Org is just one time activity. No need to create every time.

I don't know why people keep saying you need a dev org to complete challeges. In case you didn't realize that IS NOT true as they allow you launch an org with your trailhead challenge everytime you take a challege. You can connect the trailhead to a dev org, but it is not necessary to complete the challenges. It is only necessary if you would like to log directly into your org without having to launch it through a challenge.

i asked for the free developer edition and everytime I verify it wants to log me in to my production org and wants the password for my new Fake login name that came across just fine.  If i ask for a reset of my password it does the same thing because it never let me create one in the first place.

A second Developer edition org!
            How do I create a second DE org in my trailhead account?  I have a DE org in my account. But got an error when I checked one of my challenges. I was advised to use a new DE org in checking the challenges. How do I create a second DE in my trailhead account as the existing one is already not new? Thanks for your help.

I'm still confused.

When I started with Salesforce I created a developer account to use trailhead. Then suddenly my developer account expired after 90 days... turns out it was a trial.

From Trailhead you can created playground or hands-on orgs. Is this the same as a developer org??

I'm trying to create a developer edition account now, but it's telling me my e-mail address is in use.

The terminology is confusing, and none of the above answers have managed to clear it up for me.
