LiveText is an internet-based subscription service that allows students and instructors to “create, share, and collaborate on educational curriculum.” LiveText is used for assignment submission, artifact collection, standards integration, and student assessment in Concord University’s Teacher Education Program. Candidates in Concord University’s Teacher Education Program are required to maintain an electronic portfolio in LiveText for submission of standards-based assignments and to showcase their work. Concord University uses LiveText extensively in all field placements.
Each candidate will need to purchase a LiveText membership, which includes the Field Experience Module, as part of course and clinical experience requirements. LiveText must be purchased prior to the completion of EDUC210. Students will be able to use the same LiveText account for up to 5 years, or up to one year following graduation, whichever comes first.
