Pebblepad is an online e-portfolio system currently being developed in the School of Education and Human and Health Sciences. The e-portfolio is structured in a way that allows participants to map achievements and evidence of learning against set criteria to build up a log of resources. Pebblepad e-portfolios are split by course and within that the ability to create sets (groups) each area is facilitated by a manager (tutor) with external examiners given access on request - e-portfolios are private and can only be seen by facilitators of the course/set. Feedback and Grades can be assigned to each portfolio. Pebblepad consists of two main areas;

  • Assets
  • Resources

Assets is a personal document storage area where participants upload their materials e.g. document and images, this is private to the user until it is assigned to an area with the resource (workbook)
