How to add Padlet to Moodle 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 Moodle using LTI 1.3. If your Moodle version does not support 1.3, you may use our old connector described in this article.

LMS integration for Moodle (Admin level)

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 add 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 same email as Backpack owner)
  • Access to the owner Backpack account
  1. Retrieve Custom Link
    Using the owner account on Padlet Backpack, access the settings page by clicking on your avatar icon > Settings > Organization Info > scroll down to find the LTI Advantage Dynamic Registration Link section and select Create > Copy to Clipboard.
  2. Add Padlet Tool

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

Paste the link we've given you.

Click "Add LTI Advantage"

  1. Click on Activate

That's it!

Just in case:

To make sure teachers are able to find Padlet to add to their courses, head back to the page in step 1 and view the Padlet tool, make sure that  "Tool configuration usage" is set to "Show in activity chooser and as a preconfigured tool".

Additional sharing options

If you want students to work on their own copy of the Padlet, click on the Settings ⚙ icon when adding a padlet. Turn on the 'Make 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.
