ATLAS: Create a Workspace (Set Up a Course Space)

A “workspace” is essentially ATLAS nomenclature for your course site. Unlike in D2L where your workspace (your D2L “shell”)  is created automatically each term, in ATLAS, you will need to create a workspace for each course using PebblePad.

  1. Login to PebblePad
  2. Click the ATLAS icon in the top toolbar.
  3. Click the Create a workspace button. NOTE: if you do not see this button, contact the support desk to be given creator access.
  4. Select the Create a brand new workspace option.
  5. Click the Continue button.
  6. Enter a title for the workspace. The title should reflect the name of your course (e.g., UNST 101 010a Fall 2016)
  7. Select a mode for the workspace.
    • Active Mode means the workspace will be available to students immediately.
    • Setup Mode means students will not have access to the workspace. If you select Setup Mode now, you will need to go back and activate your workspace to give students access.
  8. Click Save.
