The University’s MindGenius agreement includes access to MindGenius Online for all staff and students.
Please follow these instructions to sign up in 3 simple steps:
Step 1: Create MindGenius Online account
Firstly you need to sign up using your university email address. This will initially be set up as a free trial, but once you sync your account to the University of York, you will have a full license with all product benefits.
Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive a verification email. All you need to do is verify your email through a link that MindGenius will send to you (if you don’t receive a verification email, please check your spam folder!).
Step 2: Request to sync your account with your college or university.
Once you have verified your MindGenius Online account, simply log in. As the university has an account with MindGenius, your educational email will be recognised and you’ll be asked if you want to join the university’s MindGenius account. All you have to do is request to join.
Step 3: Admin approval and confirmation
Once you have requested to join your college or university, it is then down to your college or university to approve your join request. They will be notified via email or through the MindGenius Online page under “Organisational Admin” portal. Once you have been approved you will have the full version of the product and your very own license.
Please Note: If a department would like large numbers of staff or students to access MindGenius Online, instead of self enrolling as above, they can be added in bulk. Please contact IT Support for more details.
