How do I setup PebblePad using the Avenue integration?

There are two components to the PebblePad integration – providing a pass-through for students to login to their Pebble+ (the portfolio creation tool in PebblePad) and an ATLAS (the assessment part) connection, which will pull the class roster from Avenue into PebblePad.

NOTE: Before you do this, please contact Avenue support to ensure that you’ve been given the appropriate credentials on PebblePad to do this – otherwise the integration will not be able to sync enrollments. You will know if you have been setup if you have used the integration before.

7. Click the newly created link in Content, labelled PebblePad ATLAS to continue to configure the workspace on PebblePad.

8. Select whether you wish to create a new workspace or copy from a previously created workspace. Much like Avenue to Learn, PebblePad can copy from previously run courses that you have been a Lead Tutor in. For this tutorial, we will assume that you have not taught with PebblePad before, and will select Create a brand new workspace.

14. Click Finish to complete the integration. Your rosters will now sync between PebblePad and Avenue to Learn.
