#69 - Use Padlet in Moodle to gather anonymous student feedback

  1. Students may feel constrained to contribute via a forum if their posts are not anonymised

  2. Moodle forums do not allow for anonymous posting
Solution overview

Padlet is an online noticeboard that has the option to have non-attributable 'posts' added.

This empowers students who might not otherwise engage due to concerns about privacy, to add their own feedback, suggestions, and ideas.

Padlets can be embedded into Moodle.
