Editing a PebblePAD Webfolio – Introduction
A webfolio is one of the asset types in PebblePAD. You can create a webfolio to share all of your assets with your tutor, potential employer(s), your fellow students or whoever you choose. You can personalise your Webfolio, so that it reflects who you are.
To see examples of webfolios please go to http://www.pebblepad.co.uk/examples.asp
