Structured Approach

Using PebblePad in a structured way means you will be giving students a portfolio to fill in and complete.  You will be giving them instructions of what evidence they need to provide and/or asking them questions that they will need to give answers to within their portfolio.

An example of what this might look like, is the BSc (Hons) Nursing Portfolio

There are two elements within PebblePad that will enable you to take this structured approach, workbooks and templates.  A workbook is made up of lots of ‘pages’ that students need to complete.  A template is a single ‘page’ or form that a student may need to use frequently to record information or use to aid  reflection.

Watch the quickstart complete walkthrough for creating a workbook, adding a workspace and setting up an assignment.

Naming and editing Templates and Workbooks

Sharing Workbooks and Templates  You need to collaboratively share any workbooks and templates that you create with the TEL account:  tel@derby.ac.uk and any members of your team, in case you are unavailable and changes need to be made to the resources.

What is ATLAS

ATLAS (Active Teaching Learning and Assessment Space) is the part of PebblePad where lecturers can manage assessment. This is done through a Workspace, which is the area where assignments can be set up, resources can be distributed, feedback and grades are entered.

ATLAS is accessed directly from Course Resources using the specially created link.

Follow the steps below to complete the setup of Pebblepad for Course Resources.

  1. How to add ATLAS to Course Resources
  2. How to create a workspace
  3. Adding a workbook and/or template(s) as a resource to an ATLAS workspace, so your students will be able to access them
  4. Add a link for PebblePad for your students on Course Resources
