Logging Onto Padlet

Padlet is a great learning resource for discussion activities. When given a prompt or discussion topic, learners can input text, image, video or even voice recorded answers. This way, students can collaborate and discuss their answers together.

At various points during university life, you will be required to use Padlet. This blog post will be a guide on how to log into Padlet, both online and on the iOS or Android app. You can also access Padlet through the Services menu on Moodle.

4. Once you have followed these steps, then you should tap ‘Log in with Microsoft’ and enter your university credentials.
