LiveText "Must Knows"

1.  Use Mozilla Firefox Internet Browser!!!!!

LiveText functions best in Mozilla Firefox.  Students and Faculty typically experience difficulties using LiveText with Internet Explorer.  To download Mozilla Firefox, click hereNo difficulties have been reported by those using Google Chrome or Safari with LiveText.


2.  Use word-processing software (ex. Microsoft Word), then copy/paste document text into the LiveText template. 

Because LiveText is web-based, creation of documents in LiveText is not suggested as work can be lost if the Internet connection goes down or if one accidentally clicks on another link or bookmark while working on a LiveText document.


3.  Best Practice - Attach RTF or PDF documents within the template!

Always attach an RTF or PDF version of the assignment as a backup so it can be opened on any computer. In Word, use the "Save As" function and select "Rich Text Format" or "PDF" from the "Save as type" drop down box.


4.  The "Documents" tab is your best friend!

Once you have started to work on an an assignment in LiveText, the assignment template is created and accessible by clicking on the "Documents” tab.  If you are working in an assignment template and want to return to finish it later (be sure to click “Save and Finish” before exiting!), you can retrieve it by clicking on the “Documents” tab.
