Padlet - Collaborative Wall

Padlet is a virtual wall that allows people to express their thoughts on a common topic easily. It works like an online sheet of paper where people can put any content (e.g. images, videos, documents, text) anywhere on the page, together with anyone, from any device.

Key Features

  • Customise the wall title and description.
  • Customise the background (wallpaper).
  • Choose how posts appear on the wall.
    • Option 1 | Freeform: posts can be put anywhere and can be re-sized freely.
    • Option 2 | Stream: posts are placed one below the other.
    • Option 3 | Grid-like: posts are placed in a grid-like format.
Privacy Features
    • Visibility: allows you to customize how public you want the wall to be (i.e., completely private, password protected, hidden link (hidden from Google and public Padlets), and/or totally public). This is a great enhancement to the tool, particularly for educators!
    • Moderate posts: requires you to approve posts before they show up not he wall for other readers. Again, this is a great enhancement to the tool as it allows educators to moderate student comments.
