  • Feedback Manager – an additional option in the ‘view’ menu to make the process of finding and reading feedback easier and all in one place

  • Digital Signatures  – this will allow an assessor to ‘sign’ a student’s form to verify content, this functionality works best with touchscreen devices

  • HTML Accessibility Update – previously it has not been possibly to complete workbooks in HTML mode, this is now possible

  • Link to Skydrive – users can link to documents in their Microsoft Skydrive account and view them in their asset store

  • Adaptive Workbook Page Release – you can set hidden pages in a workbook to be released either on a set date or when a previous page is verified by an assessor or tutor

  • Peer Review and Anonymous Peer Review – permissions have been updated to ensure anonymous comments remain anonymous whether viewed in ATLAS or Pebble+

  • Badges – Mozilla Open Badges can be added to Webfolios and Posts. There is a new element on the taskbar which allows users linked to Mozilla Backpack to search and add any Badges they have earned

Additional information for the new features is available within the help section of PebblePad.
