  • Context: my role to implement Pebblepad at Bradford,
  • From supporting students, staff, producing resources to liaising with PP on technical problems etc.
  • Benefits – Lots of admin control; easy to organise at an institutional level – good for assessment processesLimitations - Ease of use & uptake from staff & students, OwnershipNB: None of these are about the specific tool but rather general points about institutional controlled systems.Ask if anyone wants specific details about what we did at Bradford.
  • So move to Salford. Working group is set up and recommends PP. Do some pilots of PP with academic staff on the PGCert in Academic Practice
  • Bu then…Tougher economic times. The recommendation is shelved. We are left with a programme which uses e-portfolios but no institutional system or support. So we go to readily available online tools.
  • Benefits – Ease of use & uptake from staff & students, Ownership.Limitations - Admin and tutor access is a nightmare. QA & other aspects of assessment and feedback prove highly problematic. Tell the story of copying as a result of work be open to the web. Although you can have private blogs which mitigate this.Ask if anyone wants specific details of how we are using it.
  • ConclusionI prefer the freedom that the individual approach gives learners but it is a big headache to administer and would pose serious challenges for larger groups.
