Brief Overview of Padlet
Padlet provides faculty and students with the ability to create virtual "bulletin" boards to post and share content.
Padlet is an online virtual “bulletin” board, where students and instructors can collaborate, reflect, brainstorm and share a variety of file formats such as hyperlinks, images, file attachments, recorded audio, and recorded video all in a secure location. The power behind Padlet is the visual appeal and the ability to have multiple people collaborate easily. Instructors are required to create an account, but students do not need an account to use Padlet. Instructors can even duplicate Padlets if teaching multiple sections or updating content for new semesters.
