Portland State University was one of many institutions eagerly awaiting PebblePad’s US launch. It therefore didn’t come as a huge surprise to see the university move quickly to become PebblePad’s first US customer, opting for a four-year institution-wide license. “We are proud to be the first adopters of PebblePad here in America. We are truly excited about a platform that provides so many opportunities to expand our students' learning,” commented Reagan Vincennes, Project Manager, Office of Academic Affairs at PSU.
When asked why PebblePad had come out on top in the university’s comprehensive search for a technology to support its 28,000 users, Reagan further stated: “PebblePad was chosen for its history, reputation, community engagement and its commitment to education. PebblePad, as a product, balances the forward facing professional portfolio with integrated learning and assessment. All in all, we know that our students will have the best product available. And there is something to be said about a product designed for educators by educators. We're delighted to be a part of Team PebblePad."
