What is this?
A PebblePad resource can be directly linked to from within a Canvas course. This provides a way for students to give structured responses using PebblePad's templates and workbooks.
Standard, pre-prepared PebblePad resources can be used, as well as custom-built versions where students are required to capture specific information.
Direct links are a quick and simple solution to using PebblePad resources and bypass the need to link an ATLAS workspace.
How To Set-up
Requires the user to be enrolled as a Teacher or Course Designer on the Canvas course.
This example demonstrates how a link is added to a page, but it can be added to any content area within the course.
1. Add a page
Select Pages from the main menu, and the + Page button to add a new page to your course.
2. Add Content & Resource Link
Give the page a title.
Add content to the main text area - usually instructional for the students
Highlight the words that will become a hyperlink (clickable)
Select the (plug) icon from the text menu bar, and View all
Choose the PebblePad Resources LTI 1.3 option from the pop-up modal.
3. Choose a template
Your PebblePad Resource Store will be displayed in the modal window
Scroll to select the desired template
Once selected, you'll be returned to the Canvas page.
If the account holder is the owner or collaborator of a custom resource, these will also be listed in your PebblePad Resource Store and available for selection.
4. Save the page
Make the page visible to Teachers and Students
Save & Publish (if ready to go live)
Requires the user to be enrolled as a Student on the Canvas course.
1. Open the Canvas page
Navigate to the Canvas page containing the PebblePad resource link.
2. Open the Resource
Select the link on the Canvas page to open PebblePad directly in the resource.
3. Save as Asset
Add a title in the Save as... field
Save the page using the Save button
Use the Burger menu button in the top menu to expand the menu bar.
Select the Assets link to open the Asset Store.
The new template is saved here.
Custom resources set to single-use will not allow students to create multiple copies and will redirect them back to their first saved version in their Asset Store.
