What information is shared between Padlet and an LMS when using LTI?

Here is a summary of the information shared between Padlet and an LMS service

Padlet receives your email address, role on LMS, and, if available, name and username associated with your account on LMS. If you log into your LMS account using Google or Microsoft, we do not receive your Google/Microsoft password.

Once these details are received from the LMS on the initial log-in, an account will be automatically provisioned for you on Padlet Backpack. The account role on Padlet will match the user's role on LMS.

Right now, we associate LMS accounts with Padlet by email address, so it’s not possible to skip provisioning emails.

Subsequent log-ins via LMS

If your email address on the LMS changes and we are unable to find a corresponding email address, a new Padlet account will be created with your new LMS email address.

When an LMS user accesses their Backpack account on Padlet

Padlet will try to find a corresponding account with the same email address as the LMS user. If an email is found that matches, we log the user into that Padlet account automatically.

Some additional information

If you have an existing account on Padlet Backpack as a Student, but you hold a Teacher account on your LMS, upon initial login, Padlet will upgrade your role on Padlet Backpack from Student to Teacher

LTI 1.3 only: We do not downgrade a Padlet user from Teacher to Student even if their role is detected as a Student on LMS.
