All students in Education programs leading to degrees, endorsements, or certificates are required to purchase a subscription to LiveText unless they have no remaining major program assessments prior to program completion. If you are unsure whether or not you will have any major assessments prior to program completion, please contact your Education advisor. LiveText is considered a textbook cost and, as such, it may be factored into financial aid. LiveText is an online e-Portfolio, assessment, communication, and instructional planning system that will allow you to:
- See courses, assignments, due dates, and instructor assessments upon login
- Develop multiple, customized professional and personal e-Portfolios containing a variety of links and file types, including audio, video, and images.
- Create template-based or “from scratch” lesson plans, rubrics and websites
- Upload, store, and access all your academic work online, 24/7 with no space limitation.
- Easily, electronically share work and e-Portfolios with instructors, classmates, and potential employers to showcase skills and accomplishments.
- Connect your work to local, national and international standards required of teachers.
LiveText will be used throughout your program at Georgetown College. Any course with a major program assessment will require that the assignment be submitted via LiveText and portfolios will be constructed and submitted through LiveText. This submission of major assessment assignments and portfolios will only be accepted through LiveText. Students failing to submit required major assessment assignments/documentation through LiveText will not receive a passing grade in the course.
A subscription to Livetext is a one-time expense, which covers five years of use. This means you will continue to be able to use all the tools in LiveText and access anything you have created or stored there for a full 5 years. After the initial 5-year membership period you may extend your subscription for a nominal fee through LiveText if you so desire, or you may download all of your materials from your LiveText account to your computer.
