PebblePad - Learn Ultra LTI Tool

The new LTI 1.3 is now available in the Content Market for all users in Learn Ultra.

For those Schools which rely on Pebble+/Atlas without an LTI link in Learn – there is no need to change any of your workflows.

The PebblePad LTI tool in Learn Ultra enables the following:

  • Single Sign On from Learn Ultra to PebblePad
  • The creation of launch links to Pebble+ and ATLAS
  • The ability to create ATLAS workspaces from Learn Ultra courses. This automatically synchronises students and instructors in the new workspace with the appropriate role.
  • Synchronisation of grades from a workspace to the Learn gradebook.
  • Link directly from Learn to specific templates or workbooks for students to complete.

Full instructions on how to set up and use the Pebble+ and ATLAS LTI in Learn can be found here:
