LiveText - Description and Purpose

What is LiveText?

  • LiveText is a Web-based subscription that allows users to create and submit projects and assignments on-line. 
  • It allows creation and long-term storage of electronic portfolios, projects, and documents.
  • LiveText allows faculty to use rubrics to assess candidate work and give feedback online.
  • It allows the School of Education to collect and aggregate data for program evaluation and improvement. 

LiveText allows you to:

  • Store documents so they are accessible to you from any computer in the world.
  • Collaborate with other LiveText users world-wide (share/edit documents) but only at your discretion and with access that you grant.
  • Create web pages that can be shared with anyone you choose to grant access to by creating a visitor’s pass only for selected items you want them to see.
  • Easily create your student-teaching or internship portfolio by linking to previous course assignments already in LiveText.
  • Easily revise your portfolio by clicking the “Copy” button and customizing it for your prospective employer to view.  

Privacy Statement

LiveText is a private, secure website.  It is NOT a public network.  You are the sole owner of your LiveText subscription, which is completely password protected by you.  The only individuals who may view your work are those to whom you grant access by performing the following actions:

  • Clicking the “Submit” button to permit access for a specific instructor to grade your work.
  • Clicking the “Share” button to permit specific instructors or other selected students to see your work.
  • Creating a visitor pass code to one particular assignment you would like to share with selected individuals, even non-LiveText users.
    NOTE: It is recommended that you click “Copy” in the edit mode of your student-teaching/internship portfolio to easily create a customized portfolio for a potential employer.  Before creating the visitor pass to your customized portfolio, you may delete or add whatever you would like in order to customize it for the individual to whom you give the visitor code.
