Padlet is a collaborative online bulletin board that can be used to display text, photos, links, and many other types of media. Padlet allows users to create a board where students and instructors can collaborate and share information in a secure location. Users control the security settings so that each board can be totally public, have a hidden link, be password protected, or be completely private. Users can also determine whether content will appear freeform, in a grid, or in a stream, which is similar to a Twitter feed.
