What is Padlet?

Padlet is a tool you can use to create digital pinboards independently and collaboratively. It allows you to make a variety of digital resources in different ways - a bulletin board or blog for example - and share them easily with other students.


What can I use Padlet for?

Padlet allows you to create 'Padlets' which are collections of digitally curated content, and then share them with others.  You can add text, images, video, audio, and attached files to a 'Padlet', and then share it with others for them to collaborate on or simply to view. 

You may also be invited by staff to join or view Padlets, either as a way of sharing collected resources, or as a collaborative task. 

How do I get a Padlet account?

Simply navigate to, select Log in with Microsoft and proceed to sign-in securely using your University IT details. Only by logging in with your University email address will you receive the full features of the University Padlet account.
