What are some of the ways to add a padlet to my LMS?

There are a few ways to share a padlet in your LMS:

  1. Paste URL

-Pro: No automatic account creation for students.

-Con: If you don't want students to post anonymously, you will have to ensure accounts are created for them and that they are logged in before they post anything.

Ctrl/Cmd C + V all the way!

  1. Embed Code

-Pro: Easy. Users don't have to leave the LMS to post.

-Con: Students will have to log in manually before posting for them not to be anonymous. Some users might be prevented from posting as a logged-in user by the browser privacy mechanisms.
