Access your personal learning environment

PebblePad is your Personal Learning Environment

PebblePad is a platform to collect, curate, create, communicate and share achievements, personal capabilities and professional skills. It affords our students and staff a Personal Learning Environment (PLE).

For Students

  • Develop your professional identity and employability-related skills through creating and analysing authentic artefacts.
  • Create and capture timely on-the-job documentation and reflections.
  • Create, control and curate an organised electronic ‘evidence base’ of your work to produce a ‘showcase portfolio’.

For Staff

  • Enhance student-centred design and teaching and learning practices that support active, collaborative and authentic learning.
  • Enable cross-course and program-level design and learning by collecting evidence of learning throughout the student's lifecycle.
  • Facilitate the professional learning and continuing professional development of academic and professional staff.


On the 20 June 2018, Griffith staff were invited to hear from Paul Duvall, a lecturer and Director of Technology Enhanced Learning in the School of Medicine at the University of Liverpool, as he shared his insights and lessons learned over the past four to five years of extensive use of PebblePad.

Watch the recordings of Paul's presentation to find out what the University of Liverpool did with PebblePad, how they did it and how they continue to evolve.


Students can continue to have access to their PebblePad work (including portfolios, reflections, images, etc.) after they leave Griffith. To do this, you need to create an "Alumni" account - this is a new free account with PebblePad where you access a copy of your assets. Please note that you need to create this Alumni account before your Griffith account is deactivated. Remember to create your new account when you are preparing to leave Griffith.
