About Padlet

Padlet is an online tool where faculty, staff, and students can create visual boards for organizing and sharing content. Padlets start as a blank slate and users can add text, links, images, video, and more in a secure location. They can then share their Padlet with others who can collaborate in real time by adding their own posts to the Padlet. It is an easy and intuitive tool to use to create a secure, collaborative space online.
