Did you use PebblePad in a previous trimester, and want to create a similar experience in Trimester 2?  Here are some pointers to get you heading in the right direction.

This article includes:

  • how to copy a resource
  • how to create a new link to a new workspace
  • how to create a new link to a duplicated workspace

If you are making changes to the workbook or template you have provided in the previous offering, it is a good idea to create a new copy to share with your new cohort.  Remember that previous students will still have access to the older copy – so if you update the content, they will see these changes too.  TIP: If you are going to use the same resource over time, you can add to it but don’t take sections away.  Students will lose work if you remove an editable field or page.

To create a copy of a resource…

  1. In your PebblePad Resource Store, click on the “i” icon on the far right of the screen in line with the item you want to copy
  2. Click on the “I want to” menu at the top, and click Copy
  3. Rename this new version of your template or workbook (TIP: If it asks you to rename your “Asset” you do not have access to copy an editable version of the resource.  Contact the original owner and ask them to share and allow you to take a copy.)

If you have created a link to your ATLAS workspace through your previous Learning@Griffith site, you will need to create a new one for this trimester.  Old links included in a course site copy will not work, so you will need to remove the old and add new links to new workspaces.

To create a link and a fresh new workspace…

  1. In your Learning@Griffith course site, navigate to the appropriate content area and select “ATLAS” from the Build Content tab (TIP: ensure you have Edit mode on!)
  2. Rename the link and select all the relevant options on the page for your visibility and MarkCentre settings
  3. Click on Submit and Launch at the bottom of the page (NOTE: If you get stuck here, you may need to Request Creator Access)
  4. Select “Create a New workspace” and then click Continue.
  5. Update the title as necessary and select all your workspace settings to suit your needs.
  6. When you are ready – click the Finish button at the bottom of the page.

Don’t forget to add your new resources to your new workspace!

To create a link and copy a previous workspace…

  1. In your Learning@Griffith course site, navigate to the appropriate content area and select “ATLAS” from the Build Content tab (TIP: ensure you have Edit mode on!)
  2. Rename the link and select all the relevant options for your link visibility and MarkCentre settings
  3. Click on Submit and Launch at the bottom of the page (NOTE: If you get stuck here, you may need to Request Creator Access)
  4. Select “Choose an existing workspace” and then click Continue.
  5. Update the title as necessary and select all your workspace settings to suit your needs.
  6. When you are ready – click the Finish button at the bottom of the page.

This process will copy the settings and resources from the original workspace, but not the members and submissions. You can now remove old resources and add new ones to your new workspace.
