LiveText Training and Resources


LiveText is an online assessment and ePortfolio tool.  The web-based program assists faculty and administrators in collecting and aggregating data on student learning for the evaluation of program offerings as well as external accreditation standards.  This data helps the institution make decisions that will improve the academic programming offered and reflects the institution's commitment to scholarship, professionalism, diversity, collaboration and the effective use of technology.

As an ePortfolio tool, students and faculty can develop and customize multiple academic, professional or personal ePortfolios to showcase skills and experience.  In addition to unlimited storage and 24/7 access to materials, LiveText accommodates a variety of link and file types – including audio, video and images.  The online platform makes sharing work and ePortfolios with instructors, classmates, and potential employers very convenient.

LiveText can also be integrated with the University’s Learning Management System, Canvas.  While the majority of student work will be submitted or graded within Canvas, ePortfolio assignments and assessment data will be collected within LiveText for not only grading, but also more in-depth institutional assessment.  LiveText data warehousing allows the University to collect longitudinal data and to show and measure points of skill set development, such as the five Core Competencies:  Written Communication, Oral Communication, Information Literacy, Critical Thinking, and Quantitative Reasoning.
