Loma Linda University (LLU) has selected LiveText as the campus assessment and electronic portfolio tool of choice for schools and programs. LiveText "is an Internet-based subscription service that allows students and instructors to create, share, and collaborate on educational curriculum"1. Once it is set up, faculty and students can use it as part of regular course work assessment or for a program- or school-based portfolio assessment. LLU Institutional Learning Outcome (ILO) rubrics are downloaded and ready to use directly in LiveText, which will make assessment of these ILOs much easier. It is also easy to set up rubrics for program learning outcomes and also for course learning outcomes as well.
You can access LiveText at the following link: www.livetext.com
If would like to get started in LiveText, please request a faculty account by emailing Floyd Palitang at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have signed up for your faculty account, email your school's LiveText administrator requesting the LLU Metarubrics so you can begin assessing the ILOs!
