PadletUQ LTI tool

Using the PadletUQ LTI tool, staff can bulk create individual Padlets based on an existing Padlet template for all students in their course. The tool allows staff to create a web link in their Learn.UQ course which automatically generates an individual Padlet for each student when they click on the link. Students will need to add the course teaching staff to their Padlet as collaborators initially so staff can view it through padletuq.padlet.org

Group functionality and marking

While students are able to manually share their Padlet with their other students (i.e. group members), it is difficult for staff to locate group Padlets, as only the student who originally clicked on the link in Learn.UQ to generate the Padlet will appear in the initial search results. Therefore, the PadletUQ LTI tool is recommended for individual use only due to the limited group functionality. 

The tool unfortunately doesn't integrate with Grade Centre, meaning staff must view and provide feedback individually via Padlet and then manually enter grades in Grade Centre. Providing feedback through Padlet is also difficult as staff can only ‘react’ or comment on posts and cannot enter general feedback or highlight sections of text to provide specific feedback. Therefore, the PadletUQ LTI tool is recommended for formative assessment only.
