Add Padlet to Moodle LMS using LTI 1.3

There are a few different ways to embed a padlet in an LMS. This article will describe how to connect Padlet to Moodle using LTI 1.3.

LMS integration for Moodle (for Admins only)

LTI 1.3 only works with Moodle 3.11 and above.
LTI for Moodle doesn't work in Safari browser. Try Chrome or Firefox instead.

Before we can enable adding a padlet to Courses, you'll have to set up the Padlet Tool on the Moodle admin account.

You will need:

  • Administrator access on Moodle (ideally the same email as the Padlet for Schools owner)
  • Access to the Owner's Padlet for Schools account
  1. Retrieve Custom Link
    Using the Owner account on Padlet for Schools, access the Settings page by clicking on your avatar icon > click the three-dot ellipsis button (...) in the bottom left corner > Settings > Organization Info > scroll down to find the 'LTI Advantage Dynamic Registration Link' and select Generate > Copy.
  2. Add Padlet Tool

Head to Site Administration > Plugins > Activity modules External tool Manage tools.

Paste the link we've given you into the Tool URL field.

Click Add LTI Advantage.

  1. Click on Activate

  1. Ensure that the Padlet tool appears

To make sure teachers are able to find Padlet to add to their courses, click on the Settings cog icon (⚙️) of the Padlet tool, make sure that 'Tool configuration usage' is set to Show in activity chooser and as a preconfigured tool and ensure that Support Deep Linking (Content-Item Message) has been selected.

Adding Padlet to Moodle Assignments (for Teachers only)

Before proceeding, please ensure that your Moodle Admin has allowed access for Padlet in the above instructions!
Moodle LTI doesn't work on Safari at the moment! Please use Firefox or Chrome.
  1. Select a course

Click on the course you wish to add your padlet in and toggle 'Edit mode' ON (on the top right corner).

  1. Add an activity or resource

Your padlet will show up as a link. Click on Add an activity or resource.

Search for Padlet and click on the tool.

Click on Select content. This will bring you to a Padlet login page. Log into your Padlet for Schools account.

Additional sharing options

If you want students to work on their own copy of the padlet, click on the Settings cog icon (⚙) when adding a padlet. Turn the 'Create a copy for each user' option ON. Students will get their own copy when they click on the link in the assignment and you will be automatically added as a shared member to the padlet.

Note that turning ON the copy option will prevent you from seeing all student posts in a single padlet.
