Padlet – Your Blank Wall
They give you a blank wall. You put anything you want on it, anywhere. Simple, yet powerful. Features include: a) Easy – Drag and drop. Auto save. It’s software you already know how to use; b) Instant collaboration – You can see everyone’s activity on the wall instantly. Bye bye page reloads; c) Multimedia – Paste link to a youtube video? Check! Drag a word document from your computer? Check! Take a picture from your iPad camera? Check! A file in your drawer? Erm .. someday .. someday; d) Privacy – Keep your wall private between friends. If you like them, give them permissions like the ability to change what you write. If you are the social kind, make a public wall for the whole world to see; e) Mobile – Your phone, your tablet, your TV, your fridge – Padlet works on everything (Note: may not work on the fridge); f) Layouts – Like flexibility? Use the free form layout. Like organization? Use streams (and don’t look at their office desks); g) Fun – Fun backgrounds. Happy colors. Gorgeous interface. Padlet is Internet’s version of bubble wrap; and h) Embeddable – Put the wall on your blog or website. Make it more wonderful. Plugin for wordpress available. More coming soon.
