How to add Padlet to Blackboard LMS using LTI 1.3?

LMS integration for Blackboard (Admin level)

LTI 1.3 only works with Blackboard Learn 9.1 Q2 2019 and above. For users currently on LTI 1.0, existing links on LTI 1.0 will no longer work.
Blackboard LTI doesn't work on Safari at the moment! Please use Firefox or Chrome.

Before we can enable add a Padlet to courses, you'll have to set up the Padlet Tool on the Blackboard admin account.

You will need:

  • Administrator access on Blackboard
  • Access to either a teacher or owner account on Backpack
  1. Log into Blackboard

The account on Blackboard should be the same email as the Padlet Backpack owner.

Example: If the Backpack account owner is "[email protected]," you should use the Blackboard account for "[email protected]" to do the registration.

  1. Register LTI 1.3

Click on System Admin > Under Integrations, select LTI Tool Providers > Select Register LTI 1.3/Advantage Tool.

Note: If you are using Blackboard Ultra, these settings will be under the Admin tab.

  1. Populate fields for registration

Fill in 10c9d7c5-91e6-4231-8e06-96d1329778fa as your client ID and click on Submit.

The fields that show up after should be auto-populated, click on Submit again.

  1. Create Placements

Click on the dropdown arrow and select Manage Placements.

Then click on Create Placement.

  1. Fill in these details under Create Placement:

Label: Padlet 1.3 (For user identification purposes)

Handle: padlet-lti-1p3-tool (For user identification purposes)

Availability: Yes 

Type: Deep Linking content tool 

Target Link URI: https://padlet.com/api/hooks/lti/launch

  1. Add padlet to a course

Click on the course from your course list you wish to add your Padlet in and select Content > Build Content.

Note: Make sure Edit Mode is ON (top right).

  1. Select the Padlet tool

Under the Build Content dropdown, select the Padlet tool. It should show up as the label indicated in step 5. This will bring you to a Padlet login page. Log into your Backpack account.

  1. Log into Padlet on pop-up

A pop up will appear requesting for the Backpack domain (ending in padlet.org) and log in credentials.

If you have a password assigned to your account, simply log in using your email and password.

If you've used Microsoft365 or Google SSO to log in, click on Log in with token. Head back to your Backpack account and open Settings, then click on Organisation Info and click on Create under LTI Link Deployment Token to generate a token in place of using SSO. Copy and paste the token code given into the Token field on the pop-up in Canvas.

Note: This will only be needed in the initial set-up.

  1. Select Padlet

After logging in, select any padlet board by clicking on it.

That's it! Teachers can now go ahead and add padlets to their courses.

Additional sharing options

If you want students to work on their own copy of the Padlet, toggle the 'Create a copy for each user' option. 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.
