PebblePad was adopted at the beginning of the 2016/2017 academic year as the university’s ePortfolio tool. PebblePad allows students, faculty, and staff to create websites, blogs, and reflections to share privately or publish for public audiences such as potential employers. Because materials can be gathered easily for review, instructors and advisors can develop an ongoing dialogue with students about their learning and track student progress at the course and department level. Another feature is the ability to request an alumni account after leaving the university.
