Information for Tutors

PebblePad is a system for logging and evidencing achievements, experiences and skills. Pebblepad has two parts, Pebble+ and ATLAS. Pebble+ is where students will access workspaces. Work is set and marked in ATLAS (Active Teaching, Learning and Assessment Space), Students normally never need to go into ATLAS.

Accessing PebblePad

PebblePad is accessible direct at the QMU eportfolio login page, or via the PebblePad link in a Canvas course. 

Google Chrome is the recommended browser (version 59 minimum).

Browser settings require cookies to be enabled and the pop-up blocker disabled.

PebblePad Assignments

The part of PebblePad where students submit their asset to an Assignment is called ATLAS. Students normally never need to go into this area. You cannot see a student's work until they submit to ATLAS (unless they Share it via email).

Before students can submit work, a Workspace must be set up for that module or class of students.

Workspaces are set up by the Academic Administration
