Type of Event:

Tools like Padlet engage students in a variety of ways that aren’t possible with discussion forums and emails. Literally a rich tapestry of electronic threads, ‘virtual corkboards’ and canvases can make online learning a beautiful and inter-connected experience.

This session will practically explore tools like Padlet, MS White Board (but not as you’ve known it), Miro, Wakelet and more.

The key benefits from employing virtual corkboards and canvases are:

  • Improved student engagement
  • Improved learning
  • A more active and interconnected student experience


  • Please note this session is only available for La Trobe University staff members.
