Padlet - Help and Support

What is Padlet?  

Padlet is a versatile and intuitive digital notice board available for use by both staff and students. Padlets can be shared with easily for others to contribute to or to refer to. Often described as a digital notice board, topics, comments, images, links, videos and documents can all be added to a Padlet. Staff and students can access it through a browser or app.

Getting started

There are a number of Padlet how-to guides on the website for staff and students; you should start with Create a Padlet account.
