PebblePad is a versatile digital platform where you can share and publish content online with users including other students on your course and your academic tutors. You can record audio or video, upload documents and pictures, or embed content from other social media platforms.

PebblePad Functionality

Accessing PebblePad

PebblePad can be accessed via the Hallam login page. Be sure to select ‘I have an IT account at this organisation’. It’s available to everyone at Hallam and no installation is needed to use it. 

If you are being asked to use PebblePad as part of an assignment - you will be able to find a link to PebblePad within your Blackboard module site.

Note: the name of your PebblePad link may be edited by your lecturer to reflect the assessment. 

When you graduate, you are entitled to a free Personal Pebble+ Alumni Account. It can help you to create/update your C.V.

PebblePad for assessment:

Workbooks are one of the most common tools that you’ll use in PebblePad. This is where you will be asked to complete fields within a pre-populated Workbook, created by your lecturer, to serve as a showcase for your work. In some cases, you may be asked to start a workbook/portfolio from scratch - this will be discussed by your lecturer at the start of your assignment. 

Most PebblePad assignments utilise auto-submission, this means there is no manual submission process before your given deadline. As soon as you access your PebblePad resource, the submission will be complete and your lecturers will be able to view the work you have produced on the due date. 


Use ATLAS to submit work for assessment

ATLAS is a shared space to upload work for assessment. Some of your assessments may already be set up for auto-submission. If not, our guide goes through the process of manually setting up work for assessment.

You can also use ATLAS to access marks and feedback on your work. See our guide (DOCX, 3.8MB) for how to do this. Paper and Video versions are available.

Workbooks are one of the most common tools that you’re likely to use in PebblePad. They can serve as showcases of your work. See this introductory guide for more details.
