Have you heard of or been using Padlet in your online course? Padlet is a flexible, visual bulletin board service that can be easily shared or embedded into your online course. If you are not familiar with Padlet please take a moment to view this spring 2020 Tech Fun Friday presentation on Padlet to promote active learning (DE Guidelines 5.6) presented by the DE Committee and Donna Matsumoto. The presentation has a table of contents so you can jump around based on your interest.
Typically instructors use Padlet.com free service or seek out division funds for a paid plan, for this calendar year 2021 Leeward CC has a subscription to an Institutional Backpack paid version of Padlet. This will allow instructors an option go beyond the limit of 3 active Padlet boards as well as grow beyond the 10 MB memory limit to 250 MB. Another difference is that on the Leeward service students do not have accounts so their posts will show as anonymous, if a name is helpful, they could type their names into their posts.
Leeward CC instructors can request an account on our Padlet Institutional Backpack.
