Making resources available to students

The Resources page of the workspace is where you can make resources available to students. Resources can include templates and workbooks for students to complete, assets that you want them to view and/or copy, uploaded files, or links to websites.

Tip

It is important to understand that different resources are accessed in different ways by students:

  • Templates and Workbooks are accessed via the For Me tab in the Resource Centre in Pebble+
  • Assets, Uploaded files, and Links are accessed via the Resource Page in the ATLAS workspace.
