Pebblepad Upgrade 1801

On Tuesday, 30 January at 7 am there will be a period of downtime for approximately 20 minutes plus an at risk window until 8 am, whilst Pebble Learning will be upgrading Pebblepad to the latest 1801 release.  This upgrade features a new text editor – the main difference is that the formatting bar appears towards the top of the page and is always visible once the user is editing a text block. It provides better copy and paste, more fonts and other fixes. There are also a lot of accessibility enhancements behind the scenes. Please note that Internet Explorer 10 is now an unsupported browser.

Updates with regards to work for assessment- a new feature is a banner appearing at the top of a submitted asset indicated that it has been submitted – also if an editing deadline has been reached and the asset locked then this will also be indicated by a banner.

PebblePad Upgrade

On Friday, 19th August 2016, Pebblepad3 was successfully upgraded to Pebblepad5 which moves away from a Java Flash based infrastructure towards HTML5 based technology which means more compatibility with mobile devices. The interface is more modern with an easier navigation structure. Staff please note that the upgrade only affects the Pebblepad interface and not ATLAS which remains the same for the time being – however enhancements to this are on the horizon. Please click on the Help Centre module on the front page of Pebblepad to lead you to excellent support videos and how to guides.
