UNDERSTANDING DOCUMENT ORGANIZATION IN LIVETEXT
Documents in LiveText consist of two units: page(s) and section(s). Documents may consist of only one page with several sections or may consist of several pages, each of which has several sections. Below is a sample to illustrate document organization.
Please note the following in the above screenshot:
- Under the document title, “EDUC 490 Brandis Long Range Plan Template Fl07 – Nancy Townsend,” notice the three tabs: “Document View,” “Edit Properties,” and “Manage Pages.”
- Underneath the “Document View” tab, notice the buttons which are available for your use: “Send for Review,” “Share Document,” “Copy,” “Print,” and “Export Document.”
- To the right of the section title, “Candidate Identification Section,” notice the two buttons “Next Page” and “Manage Sections.”
- On the far right of the screen, notice the column labeled “Table of Contents” and the button with the eyelid labeled “Hide.”
Each of these sections will help you navigate within a document and customize the document to your specific needs.
Document View – This tab allows you to view the first page of any document along with its sections so that you can edit the sections to complete the assignment or project for your professor.
Edit Properties – This tab allows you to change the properties of the document. In the example below, Ms. Townsend should have edited the title of the document to remove her name and the word “Template,” then clicked on the [Save] tab in the lower right corner.
Manage Pages – This tab allows for the deletion, creation, ordering, and re-naming of particular PAGES within a document.
Buttons available for your use here include:
Create page – creates an additional page with a title of your choice automatically at the end of all the current pages.
Order – allows you to change the order of the pages
Hide – allows you to hide a particular page
Unhide – allows you to show a previously hidden page
Edit titles – allows you to change or correct a page title
Copy – allows you to copy a page if you need an additional page just like the existing one
Delete – allows you to delete a selected page.
BEFORE USING THE HIDE, UNHIDE, EDIT TITLES, COPY, OR DELETE BUTTONS, you must click in the box in front of the page you wish to change to identify the page.
ONCE YOUR CHANGES ARE COMPLETE, BE SURE TO CLICK THE [FINISH] BUTTON IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER.
Send for Review - sends document to professor for COMMENT; goes to professor’s [Inbox] and cannot be scored with rubric; professor can only comment and return document to student. This protects you, the student, from a professor mistakenly GRADING partially completed work you have sent only for feedback.
Share Document – DO NOT USE EXCEPT WITH PROFESSOR PERMISSION.
Copy – allows you to make an exact copy of a document. (For student teachers, this button means that you will not have to re-type your first Long Range Plan in order to make the changes Mrs. Brandis has suggested so you can submit your final Long Range Plan.) The copy will be automatically named “Copy of [document title]” and will be placed alphabetically in your [Documents] tab under “My Work.”
Print – allows you to print your ENTIRE document. To go back to your document after printing, be sure to use the “Go Back” link in the upper right hand corner rather than the “Back” button of the Firefox web browser.
Export Document – exports your LiveText document as an .html (web page file) to a zipped file folder for saving your work to your computer hard drive, flash drive, and/or CD.
Next Page – allows you to go to the next page within the document.
Manage Sections – allows you to create, order, hide, unhide, edit tiles, copy and delete specific SECTIONS on a given page within a document.
This works exactly like the options for managing the pages within a document (refer to descriptions above under “Manage Pages”) EXCEPT for the “Create Section” tab.
Create section – allows you to create a section on a page within a document. Several types of sections are available for adding:
Text and Image – allows you to include additional text and/or images like photographs or clip art.
Standards – allows you to add SC Academic Standards to a document. If standards are required and the professor has a template for you to use, a standards section is already created for you in the template.
Resources – allows you to add resources other than text, photographs, or clip art. These resources may include links to a web site or a United Streaming video clip to be used with a lesson.
Rubric – allows you to create a rubric of your own. This might be useful if you need to include the rubric by which you graded students on an assessment during student teaching.
Form viewer – you should not need to use this function.
Table of Contents – allows you to see the pages and sections of the entire document at one glance. The eyelid icon will toggle between “Show” and “Hide” to view the table of contents.
The small blue pieces of paper indicate each page. The up or down arrows to the right of each page title will show or hide the sections on that particular page.
You can quickly navigate between pages by clicking on the page title.
When the sections are displayed on a page, you can quickly navigate between sections by clicking on the section title.
