In August 2016, we upgraded to V5 of PebblePad. Since then, Version 5 has been running concurrently with the ‘Classic’ version, in order to minimise disruption to those staff and students already working within it.
However, the older version will shortly cease to be supported by PebblePad, and we will therefore be switching as an institution to Version 5. The switchover will take place on July 4th at 8:30 a.m.
It’s important to note that the main difference in the new version is its ‘look’, and improvements to functionality – existing assets etc. will remain in your personal spaces. We have been working on a range of supporting materials (for staff and students), and will provide various hands-on sessions: for novice PebblePad users; for those who are transferring to V5; and for those who are already using it and just want to know more – look out for opportunities to sign up for these.
On July 12th, a representative from PebblePad will be at the University and available for Q&A and practical sessions – please get in touch if you would like to know more about this.
Please note that ATLAS is not changing in the short term, and all assessment activity (such as setting up assignments and marking) will continue as before.
