About Padlet

Dostoevsky said that beauty will save the world. Padlet is a beautiful way to organize and present your team’s files, assets, and ideas. Instead of mind-numbingly boring documents from the 80s or mostly useless folders from the 90s, create visual boards (padlets) that are delightful to look at and fun to contribute to. Over 30 million people every month actively use Padlet around the world. Here are some of the ways they use it: -Provide feedback on files -Manage instructional videos -Store marketing assets visually -Track real-estate listings on a map -Build slideshows -Create meeting schedules -Brainstorm on a shared surface -And more Dostoevsky would have loved Padlet.

Helpful Starting Point for Discussions

Overall, even though padlet is simplistic in design and nature it is a helpful and quick tool, especially in the classroom. Users are able to quickly share their ideas and is therefore a perfect starting point for conversations, seminars, or surveys.

PROS

Padlet is a simple way for groups of people to share ideas, brainstorm, and start conversations. In the classroom setting I have used it many times for students to anonymously project ideas on the screen. This easy to access software can help students to get out of their shells and contribute to a conversation/seminar in ways that they otherwise wouldn't have.

CONS

Padlet's features are functional and easy to use, however they are at times simplistic and lack the more refined features that would be helpful. It feels like an online version of having individuals place stickynotes on a corkboard. It can also be difficult to vet inappropriate submissions if you are not vigilant.

Vendor Response

Hi David! Thank you for leaving this review. I'm glad that Padlet is a helpful tool for your classroom discussions. It's awesome that all students are able to contribute to the conversation through Padlet. When it comes to inappropriate submissions, we do have some features in place, like require approval, to help combat this issue. We are also working on more automated ways to handle these types of submissions. Stay tuned for more. In the meantime, I'd be curious to learn more about the refined features you're looking for. Could you send us a message with more details? https://padlet.com/contact-us Thanks again for using Padlet!

They Refused to Stop Charging My Card Upon Request to Stop Service

I purchased their service for a friend. The friend only used it for one month. After several months of not using the service and being charged, my friend tried to cancel the service. I kept being charged for service each month. I called and tried to cancel the service. The customer service representative refused to stop the service because I did not open the account. I told her to disassociate my bank card with the Padlet account. Again, the representative refused to stop charging me because I did not open the account. I had to get my bank to stop charging me. I was charged over a year.

PROS

It worked for the purpose it was used for.

CONS

I received very poor customer service. They continued to charge me a monthly service charge for over a year.

Vendor Response

Awesome Teaching Resource

I love that it is an easy way to collaborate with large groups and it is easy to share. I love that each page can be customized with images etc.

PROS

I like that I can instantly share this with all of my students though our Google Classroom with ease. Its a great way for us to collaboratively take notes as a class and share ideas together.

CONS

I wish there was an option to do slides of some kind that can then be presented in full screen mode. - slides that could be shared and created with multiple people.

Reasons for switching to Padlet

This is a more efficient way of presenting and collaborating with my class. The controls are easy to use and is not too complicated to find what you need and are looking for.

Vendor Response

Hi Koriana, We're so glad to hear that you find Padlet useful for so many different tasks in your classroom. We're also happy to let you know that we've recently released Slideshow view for all Padlets. If you select the play button from the action bar of any padlet the posts will present in a fullscreen, shareable presentation. We hope this helps and thank you for using Padlet!
