Welcome to the Facebook Educators Portal, designed by educators, for educators. You can use this content to teach digital marketing to students at all levels of higher education. That includes advanced high school, career and technical school (CTE) students, as well as students in community college, university and MBA programs.

You will find a few different resources here: in-class presentation materials, facilitator notes, case studies, student activities, quizzes and links to corresponding online material for students to both prepare for class and reinforce what they learn. The content is modularized, so you can integrate it into existing plans or syllabi (either a core marketing class or an elective) and build a classroom experience that is relevant to your students.

If your students are interested in taking the Facebook Digital Marketing Associate Certification Exam, we recommend that they use the available six hours of online resources to prepare. The certification is aimed at entry-level candidates. You can also find more information about the Facebook Blueprint Digital Skills content here.

Content in the Educators Portal

The content in the Educators Portal takes learners through the basics of starting, executing and measuring a digital campaign on Facebook and Instagram. Applied content allows students to run their own campaigns, while case study exercises give them an opportunity to analyze how clients have designed and pivoted their campaign strategies. Students are also challenged to consider online safety and privacy, and how data is shared.

The content is divided into five main units and 28 lessons. We recommend this content path for advanced high school, CTE, community college and university students. You’ll also find three workshop packages for more advanced and graduate-level students.
