Most School of Education programs require the use of LiveText, as McKendree University
is required by our accreditors to collect assessment data. Please review this page
for essential LiveText information.
How to access LiveText
LiveText can be accessed through the "MyMcK" link in the upper right of McKendree's
website or by navigating to www.livetext.com in your web browser.
Setting up your LiveText account
Students can purchase a LiveText account at the McKendree bookstore or at www.livetext.com. Make sure that you include your student ID number and select "McKendree University" as your school during registration.
Instructors and Field Experience Supervisors, please send an email requesting the creation of an account to firstname.lastname@example.org. The email should include your name, title, and McKendree ID number.
Cooperating Teachers will be sent LiveText instructions each term as part of their materials from the School of Education.
LiveText account issues
Please reference the Quick Info > LiveText Account Issues? section on the right side of this page should you experience issues with your LiveText account
(e.g. lost password, account expiration). While McKendree University helps to facilitate
LiveText account creation, the accounts are "owned" by the individual.
Help with LiveText
Everything one needs to know about using LiveText software can be found in the LiveText Help Center. Note: Resources for McKendree-specific use of LiveText can be found below.
