This guide covers how to associate a PebblePad resource with a Blackboard assignment to direct students towards a template or workbook to complete.


What is this?

PebblePad Resource Store

To simplify the process for students, a PebblePad assignment link can bypass the Pebble+ dashboard and open directly into a specified resource.

Instructors can specify which resource to associate with the assignment. This can be one of the many standard PebblePad resources (available to all), or a custom-built resource made by you or a collaborator.
