Shortly, you will receive an email from MyFace with a link and a passcode. Clicking on the link will take you to the MyFace login page where you will enter your email address and the passcode. The first time that you log in, you will be asked to register with your name and the name of your organization. After this, you are taken to the course page, and you’re ready to start adding courses!
To create your first course, click “add course.” Next, enter a short name for your course (e.g., BADM102-01, ACCT102-2). If you have multiple sections of the same course, make sure to include the section number. You will also be asked to enter the estimated enrollment. Clicking “add course” will create your course record and generate a unique hashtag (#) that will display in a popup window. You may repeat this process to add additional courses or sections.
When you successfully add a course, you will receive an email within a few hours with instructions for your students. It is like the one included in this packet, but it is customized with the hashtag that uniquely identifies your course. These instructions explain to your students how to post how to post an Instagram photo of themselves with their name and course hashtag. You are free to modify these, print them out, or email them to your students as you see fit.
Note: You do NOT need to have an Instagram account yourself to use MyFace. However, we recommend that you try it out so that you can better speak to any issues that your students may have using it.
Once your students have posted their pictures you will be able to click “Flip It!” and your course will automatically be populated with photos of your students. Have fun getting to know them!
