This guide covers how to link directly to a PebblePad resource from a Moodle course, without connecting to an ATLAS workspace.


What is this?

Blackboard course with PebblePad link

A PebblePad resource can be directly linked to from within a Moodle 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

Open video full screen

Requires the user to be enrolled as a Manager or Teacher on the Moodle course.

1. Turn on Edit mode

Select the Edit mode button (top right) to allow changes to be made to the course

Within a section (Topic 1 shown in video example) select the Add an activity or resource link

3. Add External Tool

From the pop-up modal, choose the External Tool tile

4. Set as PebblePad 

In the Preconfigured tool field, choose PebblePad from the dropdown menu.

Choose the Select content button

5. Choose PebblePad Resource

From the pop-up modal, choose the PebblePad resource to be linked

Returning to the Moodle set-up, rename the link title (if required)

Select the Save and return to course button

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.

Student View

Open video full screen

Requires the user to be enrolled as a Student on the Moodle course.

1. Open the PebblePad Resource

Select the PebblePad Resource link to open in a new window.

2. Save the Resource (as an asset)

Type a title in the Save As... field.

Select the Save button.

3. Find in Asset Store

Use the PebblePad button in the top menu to go to the Pebble+ dashboard. 

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.
