Introduction to e-portfolios, specifically PebblePad, the e-portfolio system in use at the University.
An e-portfolio is a purposeful collection of digital items, such as ideas, evidence, reflections and feedback, which presents a selected audience with evidence of a person's learning and/or ability.
PebblePad is the e-portfolio system used within The University of Edinburgh. It supports personal learning whilst providing a powerful suite of customisable tools to improve learning in the University context.
You can use PebblePad to record, reflect, review, discuss and share your thoughts, feelings, achievements and plans related to any aspect of your learning - formal or informal, structured or serendipitous, institutional or social. You can record your items directly or add multimedia files then arrange, annotate, submit or present these online as you choose.
PebblePad is available to all students and members of staff at the University of Edinburgh, and is accessible through MyEd.
