Q. How do I login to Padlet?


Padlet is an online 'Pin board' where users can post their thoughts on a topic, add pictures, audio, videos, links and upload documents.

Example Padlet


New for 2018, the university has purchased a site licence for Padlet. This gives staff and students unlimited Padlets,  and also: support, folders, themes, and much larger file size allowance, and eventually – integration with NILE. 

The licence is for one year (1819), and renewal will be based on whether we can make a good case for it, so your feedback is needed please!
