Student interaction with Padlets in Minerva

When a Padlet is embedded into Minerva, students are not required to have a Padlet account or be logged in to contribute. To see who has contributed to your Padlet, ask your students to write their name on their posts. Even if you have the Author and timestamp setting enabled, students are anonymous unless they are logged in with their Padlet account.

Remember to check your visitor permissions on who can view, write and edit your Padlet. See the Share your Padlet guide for further information.
