Study tools

During the year you will need to access a range of Study tools. All of these tools can be accessed via the La Trobe Student homepage (look for the heading: Study tools) or Study tools page.

Familiarise yourself with the following tools:

  • Learning Management System (LMS)
  • PebblePad
  • Office 365

Note: You can log on to any study tool by using your La Trobe username and password.

Learning management system (LMS)

Available from mid-January 2017.

The main system you'll use during the year will be the Learning Management System (LMS). When you have activated your account and enrolled online you will have access to the LMS.

LMS will be the place you will go to find all your course and subject information.

Pebble Pad

Pebble Pad is your personal learning space. During the year you may be asked to complete some coursework in Pebble Pad.

Log on to Pebble Pad and try out all the features of Pebble Pad. You can access Pebble Pad on your computer, tablet or phone. To view the PebblePad tutorial, see the PebblePad Help for Students page.
