LiveText is the data management system selected by Perkins College of Education (PCOE) for program improvement and accreditation purposes.  All PCOE students are required to purchase and use a LiveText account.  You may purchase LiveText at the bookstore or purchase it online.  LiveText costs $98.00 for a 5 year account.  It has an ISBN number and is covered by financial aid if purchased at the bookstore during the first two weeks of the semester. You will purchase it only once and then use it throughout your program.
All students are required to purchase a LiveText account, either through the University Bookstore or at www.livetext.com. This is a one-time purchase, and the account will be used throughout your program. Required program assignments must be submitted through LiveText. Successful completion of the course and program are dependent on submission of all required LiveText assignments. The system is also available for student use as an online digital repository, where students can store documents, images and video clips as a robust e-portfolio system to house everything related to the College of Education.
