Alief welcomes MackinVia!

Our newest app in the Alief HUB is MackinVia! You will find this app in the Alief Digital Resources folder of the Alief HUB. You will find all of our ebooks and digital resources in one place! It is amazing!

You will be able to search all of our digital resources in one place and be able to read all of our ebooks in one app! Students can use the Backpack feature in MackinVia to save favorites, request books, take notes in a Notebook, and more.

How To Set Up Your MackinVIA Backpack


All students have access to BrainPop through the district. Students have a unique login that follows the following scheme:

UN: ID number + ygb

PW: computer password (same as Schoology)


UN: 123456ygb

PW: EXAM1234

Each teacher has a join code for the class. Students DO NOT need to create an account to join that class. They just need to use the join code and log in using their username and password.
