together with anyone from any device.
- Online Collaborative Platform
- Shared Workspace for education
Usability:- For getting started educators can easily create an account either with Google or by signing up. ‘Build wall’ allows educators to design their own wall with a proper title and description, where they can put any content they like. By double clicking on the grey part of the wall, educators can easily create posts and add images, links, videos etc. By using privacy settings such as public, private, etc., users can manage their audience and can also create password protected wall for limited access which, as a teacher, is a good feature to implement for their class. With easy to use options like drag-drop and upload, users can create more engaging and meaningful posts on their walls. Also, this platform allows educators to easily share and embed their walls in a blog, wiki or website for collaborative learning.
Our Review:- Padlet is a free application to create an online bulletin board that educators can use for displaying information, brainstorming sessions or discussions with an easy and intuitive UI. One of the good features of it is that educators can make their wall posts interactive, by dragging and dropping different media and uploading files to them. With features like export, subscribe, email and social sharing, educators can easily make their wall posts collaborative. Users can also invite collaborators to contribute to their walls and enable notifications when new posts are added. With ‘embed’ option educators can embed any wall into their blog, website etc. By utilizing privacy settings effectively teachers can create private walls for particular classes through which they can easily ask questions about any topic and provide assignments to students. The best thing is that users can create as many walls as they want. Padlet is a good product for making easy class projects and managing groups with easy interaction, collaboration, sharing and learning.
