Padlet allows you to create an online bulletin board where your students can add posts (text, pictures, links, files etc). You can create a link to share a freestanding Padlet or you can embed the Padlet in a Canvas page.

Students create their posts anonymously. Padlet is an excellent tool for collaborative group work. Padlet can also be used on your mobile device.

Karolinska Institutet has purchased a "site license" which you can access via You log in with the same log in details as for New staff (after 20 September 2020) will need to be manually added. 

About the workshop

During this short workshop we will show you:

  • how to create a Padlet with your KI login
  • how you select layout and how you set viewing and sharing privileges
  • how you embed your Padlet in a page in Canvas

We will briefly discuss how you can use Padlet in your teaching and we welcome your ideas for using Padlet for student collaborations online.

This workshop will be given via Zoom and you will need headset and web camera to participate.


You should be familiar with publishing in Canvas. A week before this workshop you will be given access to a Canvas course room with a few tasks to do before we meet. This will not take more than 30 min.
