How to add Padlet to itsLearning LMS using LTI 1.3?

There are two different types of integrations for LMS available in Padlet, namely LTI 1.0 and LTI 1.3. This article will describe how to connect Padlet to itsLearning using LTI 1.3. If your itsLearning version does not support 1.3, you may use our old connector described in this article.

Set up LMS integration for itsLearning (Admins)

You will need:

  • Administrator access on itsLearning
  • Access to the owner account on Backpack
  1. Add Padlet app

From the itsLearning administrator account, head to the Admin page and select Manage apps.

Then click on Add app > Browse app library. Search for Padlet and click on Include this app.

Ensure that the correct hierarchy and type of users have access to Padlet and key in a set-up name that will help you easily identify it later. Do also check that the Availability in default location box has been checked. See below for example of filled fields:

Once completed, the bottom of the page should show the following fields.

These fields do not need to be sent, simply click on The tool provider has registered these fields. And click on Save.

Padlet is now available to be added by users within the hirerarchy with the correct roles.

Set up LMS integration for itsLearning (Teachers)

Before proceeding, please ensure that your itsLearning admin has allowed access for Padlet in the above instructions!
  1. Add padlet to a Resource

Navigate to Resources by clicking on Courses and selecting a course. Then click on Resources.

Click on Add to add a resource, then select Padlet.

  1. Log in to Padlet

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 itsLearning.

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

  1. Select a Padlet Board

After logging in, select any padlet board by clicking on it. Once this is done, a pop up will appear to confirm the padlet you wish to add. Click on Save.

The Padlet should show up like this on itsLearning!

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.
