This page gives advice and activities to orientate yourself in PebblePad as a member of staff, and get a feel for the system.
It may be useful to read the What is PebblePad page before you start. This guide does not explain every step, and is not intended to show you everything the system can do. See here for more detail in the full PebblePad guides.
Getting started with PebblePad
Log in to PebblePad via MUSE, under 'View all services'. If you cannot see PebblePad in MUSE, you can log in directly by going to http://v3.pebblepad.co.uk/login/sheffield
All staff and students will launch PebblePad on the same screen. This part of PebblePad is called Pebble+, and is where you will create and fill in resources. Below are a summary of the features you will most likely need when first using PebblePad.
|Creating a Resource||
Create a Resource (a form for you or another person to fill in later) by clicking on 'Get Creative' in the Burger Menu. This can be a Template (a single page) or a Workbook (several pages). In this example we'll create a Template - see also more detailed instructions for building Templates, and details of how to build Workbooks.
|Using a Resource||
To fill out this resource, go to your Resource store (via the homepage or Burger Menu) and click on its name. As it's a Resource you created yourself, click 'Create a Response' (not 'Edit Resource'). Give your response a name in the 'Save as...' field, fill in as much as you want in your Template, and click Save. You will now see this Asset saved in your Asset Store. Click on its name to open and edit it should you need to.
|Other types of Asset||
As well as creating Assets by filling out resources, you can create assets that are Pages (one page) or Portfolios (multi-page). These are created free-form from scratch without filling out resources. The process to create them is similar to Templates and Workbooks, except you're adding content rather than blank fields. For details see:
Your resources can be shared with learners, either for their personal use or to be formally assessed. This is usually done via ATLAS. For details how this works see:
PebblePad Support (login via 'university/organisation').
