As part of your subscription, you have access to an administrative site that provides usage information. Simply log into PebbleGo using your administrator username and password.

Is there a way to configure PebbleGo so my students don’t have to type in their username and password?

Yes. Using your user administrator login, under the “User Access” tab, you’ll find an SQS link, also known as a quick login link. This is a link that you can use to allow students to access PebbleGo without having to type in the username and password.
Note: If you’re posting this link on a school website, make sure that it’s not a website that can be accessed by members of the public, as posting a quick login link where others can find it will violate your license agreement.

How do I set up bookmark for easy access to PebbleGo?

You can bookmark your quick login link to the browser on your school’s computers, or bookmark it to the desktop on your mobile devices so that students can choose it in the same way they choose an application. To do so, copy your quick login link to the clipboard and open the browser. You may be able to directly bookmark a URL without loading the page, however if you don’t see a long series of letters and numbers after the characters “/?sqs=” your quick login link may not work in the bookmark.

Make sure you test your quick login link bookmark after you’ve made it.
