We are delighted to announce that Emory & Henry College has joined the PebblePad community. We are very proud to be working with one of North America's leading Liberal Arts Colleges in a collaboration which will see the college take its thriving eportfolio culture to the next level.

Joseph Vess, Ampersand Advisor and Programs Coordinator, Emory & Henry College, said of the new partnership:

“We are very excited about working with PebblePad to move our ePortfolio practice to the next level, as well as exploring other ways to innovate. Pedagogically we have a strong and thriving ePortfolio culture, and now we finally have the technology to support it, and help our faculty do what they want to do.”


Guest blog - to build better assessment you need to look at it from a different perspective.

Griffith University guest blog - a multi-pronged approach to the enterprise-wide implementation of a Personal Learning Environment.

Organisation-wide eportfolio implementation - a fantastic guest post by Heidi C. Blair, Ph.D. and Megan Duffy from Griffith University, written in the universal language of food.

Like many other higher education institutions, Griffith University (Queensland, Australia), had been looking for an eportfolio platform for its 55,000 staff and students. Across its four academic groups - Arts, Education & Law, Griffith Business, Griffith Health, and Griffith Sciences – academics were asking for a platform to suit a variety of tastes. The University had an appetite for purchasing an eportfolio solution that it could implement and support for all. In late 2016 the university determined that PebblePad was the right technology for the job. Fast forward to August 2017, and the university has a successful enterprise-wide implementation, working collaboratively across departments and academic groups.


Another great catch - James Blackburn joins the team and reflects on his first PebblePad event.

Well, our list of internal blog authors has yet again been incremented by a count of one as we welcome James Blackburn to the PebblePad gang. Affectionately known as James Blackburn Rovers within the team (well, at least by those who follow football or soccer) we are delighted to have him on board. James, who famously once wore a hula skirt in a PebblePad workshop whilst still with the Institute of Swimming (though none of us can remember exactly why) has authored a very personal blog post, reaffirming  why he's such a great catch for PebblePad (despite showing questionable judgement when it comes to appropriate workshop attire).
