PebblePad ePortfolio Platform

I have been exploring PebblePad as an ePortfolio tool. It has some interesting functionality including hosting services for individuals and self-hosting options for institutions. This platform allows end users to upload assets (evidence) into the system, reflect on it and share it with other users or assessors as individual artifacts, webfolios, or blogs. I found the following features valuable in the context of learning ePortfolios in higher education:

  • The ability for the user to display evidence in multiple views
  • Wizards to guide users through the process of asset (artifact) development
  • Users can reflect on individual assets (artifacts)
  • Comprehensive assessment management including a gradebook, ability to set time release on feedback, options for calibrated assessment, links to learning outcomes

**According to vendor currently only offering licenses for the UK and Australia but would assess on a case-by-case basis

If you have used PebblePad as an instructor, student or administrator I would love to hear your impressions. Please either write a comment below or email me directly at lucas.wright@ubc.ca
