Student Guide for Using LiveText
LiveText is an electronic portfolio system with data collection capabilities that is accessible through the internet. Teacher candidates are able to design portfolios to show their teaching abilities and clinical experiences, and the School of Education is able to generate and review data to prove that students are able to do what they are supposed to do to become teachers.
Unlike Blackboard, which manages course documents and allows teacher candidates to upload completed work, LiveText allows teacher candidates to complete some of their course assignments, projects, and portfolios online. Additionally, many projects and assignments will be completed using fill-in-the-blank templates to guide teacher candidates in meeting the requirements of the assignment or project. Once the assignments are completed online, teacher candidates can submit their work directly to their professors, who grade and comment on their work online via LiveText and return the work electronically via LiveText (not email or Blackboard) to the teacher candidate. Best of all, if a teacher candidate's computer experiences technological problems while completing an assigment in LiveText, the work is not lost and can be restored to the teacher candidate's computer with a call to LiveText support providing the date and time the assignment was in progress when the problem occurred.
