Padlet student guides

Padlet is best described as an online noticeboard or digital canvas.

Padlet is typically used to facilitate collaborative activities with your classmates, however it can also support independent study.
You can contribute to padlets created by others, or create your own.


This collection of Padlet guides has been carefully curated with the Warwick student community in mind. We hope you find it helpful.
