We are excited to announce this new ePortfolio tool, available from Fall 2020. We encourage the use of technology that supports effective pedagogy and PebblePad helps students to articulate what they know, how they know it, and to share evidence from their work across their programs of study. PebblePad is well-designed and easy-to-use as you will find from the student testimonials below.
Learn about how PebblePad fits into KPU's Academic Plan 2023 in the video below.
ePortfolios are among a set of high impact post-secondary practices promoted by the American Association of Colleges and Universities. They may be used for curricular, co-curricular, or experiential learning, for prior learning assessment, and as a means to create authentic and meaningful assessments of learning with and for students. Our recorded webinar ePortfolios Explained outlines this important practice.

As you begin to explore PebblePad and build your first portfolio, please note this is a phased implementation. We encourage you to use the creative suite of tools but please wait to share your creations with others until we provide guidance on how to best “share” within our installation. We are still setting up these elements and “sharing” prematurely can create future account creation issues. If you are planning to use PebblePad with others (Faculty/students) please log a request in the IT SERVICE PORTAL so we can assist you with your implementation.
