Managing your PebblePad workspace

Workspaces are managed in ATLAS by accessing your Dashboard. If you have created a workspace or have been otherwise added as a manager of a workspace you will have both a Member’s Dashboard and a Manager’s Dashboard.

To access your dashboard simply click the ATLAS icon link in your LearnJCU subject site.
