Padlet is an online collaborative noticeboard. It can be used in a variety of ways; collating notes, sharing resources, brainstorming. However, it can also be used for students to post questions (anonymously) during a teaching session or online. These questions can then be answered by either the tutor or by other students.
It can also be used as a way of collating questions and answers in relation to module assessment tasks. By using Padlet in this way you can provide an up-to-date, live resource that all students can access. It is definitely quicker and easier to manage than updating a FAQ sheet or replying to emails and individual discussion threads.
Guidance on using Padlet, including how to request a staff account, is available on the Digital Learning blog.
