Step 1: Set-up Account

When you first register for classes as a new student in our program, you will receive in your Bear mail account an email that contains a 16-character key code, or registration code. Typically, this will be sent to the new students after the semester’s drop/add deadline, so you will only be able to register for your LiveText account after that deadline.
Here are the steps for LiveText registration. These steps can also be found at: http://www.unco.edu/cebs/livetext/documents/students/livetextStudentRegistrationInstructions.pdf

Uploading/Withdrawing Course Assignments and Monitoring Grading

Specific courses in the Master Generalist program have assignments – one per course – that require you to upload your work to LiveText, where it is graded by the instructor using a standardized rubric tailored to that course. These assignments, and their rubrics, eventually become artifacts for your comprehensive examination portfolio. Hence, it is important to upload these products of your work and keep them in your LiveText account for the duration of the program. View essential steps for uploading assignments and monitoring their grading by course instructors. You can also view steps for removing your work, when removal is still possible, so that you can change something and re-submit.
