Universities and professional bodies using PebblePad have been keen to see the introduction of an iPhone version of the software to support a range of learning activities. Users can now record their thoughts, or upload photos straight from their iPhones to their online personal learning space, wherever they are.

The growth of wireless zones has contributed to the cost of mobile internet browsing dropping considerably in the past year, and the costs are likely to drop further under pressure from consumer watchdogs.

Colin Dalziel, Operations Director at Pebble Learning, comments, “The massive increase in the number of applications for the iPhone and Android-based smart phones has been phenomenal and now the 100,000+ applications include a PebblePad app. We anticipate use will include recording and reflecting upon activities immediately at the point of action, as well as collecting photographic evidence to support research, project work, professional development and work-based learning.”

The items recorded on the iPhone can be sent directly to a blog to allow users to keep an ongoing record of their activity. Any item recorded on the iPhone can also be reused in a number of ways within the online system to present rich portfolios of work for a variety of purposes. These may include peer review activities, formal assessment or as supporting material to enhance a job application or career progression.

Colin continues, “The convenience of having a device in your pocket to record evidence and activity is likely to make online portfolios a rich and powerful medium for presentation.”

The new application will be discussed at Pebble Learning’s inaugural conference: 8-10 June 2010 in Shifnal, Shropshire, UK.
