Padlet is an interesting visual collaboration tool which can be used for example to create discussion or collaborative learning around a certain topic.
Easy, intuitive, inclusive
Creating content to padlet (“posting”) is very easy- just click, copy-paste or drag and drop – and there’s no limit to how many people can do it at the same time. As a padlet board is created, people with access to it can add different types of content and they all appear in the same view which can easily be browsed through to get an overview. Changes are autosaved. Posts can be dragged to different parts of the board, and edited in many ways.
Images, documents, videos, music, and files from Photoshop, Illustrator, Autocad, and more can be uploaded, and in every post there’s possibility to comment – making discussions visible and intuitive to follow.
Sign-up is not compulsory – if someone invites you to a board, you can access it without signing up.
