PebblePad is a web based program available to all staff and students at Charles Sturt University to support the creation of a personal learning space (PLS) and eportfolios. We currently use and support version v5, 1602 install.
A personal learning space assists in the process of collecting, selecting, reflecting, interpreting, synthesising, evidencing, and presenting skills, by way of scaffolding the process of creating meaningful assets.
Pebble Pad can be accessed from outside the university and is supported on desktop and mobile devices including the smartphone and tablet computer. The PebblePocket app is also available and allows you to edit and save assets on your device and send them directly to your PebblePad asset store. Upon graduation, students can request an alumni PebblePad account so they can continue to have full access to their portfolios.
The learning centre within PebblePad provides comprehensive support to users providing tip sheets and short help videos.
Additional help documents to assist both Charles Sturt University academics and students in getting started with PebblePad are located on the right hand side under Help Guides and Tutorial Videos.
