How to use PebblePad

Pebble+ is your private, secure personal online learning space.

You can create records of learning, experience and achievement by noting your reflections and showcasing your knowledge, skills and attributes.

Structured resources are on hand to prompt and guide you.

Access

PebblePad is an ePortfolio tool available to all staff and students via LearnJCU.

Lecturers can provide a PebblePad link within the Subject Content, this will allow students direct access to their PebblePad dashboards at the time of need.

Otherwise, students can also find it in 'Books & Tools' in the left-hand menu of your subject site under 'Details & Actions'.
