How to add Padlet to Blackboard LMS using LTI 1.0?

Deprecation notice: LTI 1.0 will no longer be supported by IMS Global from June 2022 onwards. We do not offer this connector for new users. Existing users should migrate to the new LTI 1.3 standard.

There are two different types of integrations for LMS available in Padlet, namely LTI 1.0 and LTI 1.3. For the LTI 1.0 tool, each Padlet board has to be added individually as an external tool in each individual assignment using ALL the respective steps below.

This article will describe how to connect Padlet to Blackboard using LTI 1.0. If your Blackboard version supports 1.3, you may use our new connector described in this article.

Troubleshooting tips

If you've tried the LTI 1.0 connector before and have since updated Blackboard or switched Blackboard accounts and are trying to connect again using the same connector, you may hit an error that looks something like:

"We made a wrong turn. We've encountered an error and are working to fix it. Drive safe!".

This is probably because each Padlet Backpack account can only connect to one LTI 1.0 LMS account at any point in time. You may want to consider using LTI 1.3 for Blackboard as that limitation does not exist in our LTI 1.3 integration. Otherwise, please contact us to reset your LTI 1.0 connection.
