- What is LiveText?
LiveText offers unlimited storage space for files & assignments and offers a convenient way to share those files and assignments.
For Students: According to the LiveText website, "LiveText offers you a digital workspace to author any sort of document; assignments, journals, lessons, e-portfolios, and more. You can share these documents instantaneously with professors, classmates, and groups for assessment and collaboration."
For Faculty: According to the LiveText website, LiveText allows you to be "at the forefront of defining educational objectives for students and developing meaningful, evidence-based measures of progress. By integrating LiveText's C1 into your curricular program, you promote collaborative, reflective learning, provide easy faculty-student communication for coaching and assessment, and support institutional oversight for data collection and continuous improvement."
