A private, more secure instance of Padlet for your school.
The Padlet you already love with the privacy and control your school needs
User management and access control
Add and remove people from your school. Student graduates? Revoke access while still keeping their data. New students join? Give them automatic access to lessons and plans and other stuff you have created. Give administrators and teachers rights to see student work.
All padlets, by default, are only visible to the people in your school. Plus, you can also remove all social features like Facebook sharing from your padlets. All this without compromising on the ease of sharing with others, including sharing outside the school when you have to.
If your school is the type that likes to limit access to its content to the walls of its campus (firewall, if you will), we can do that. This is on top of our already sweet security - our servers are well protected; we use SSL to transfer data between your computers and our servers, the same technology used by banks; we backup your data every day.
Instead of meaningless "padlet" and our jesterlike crane, see your school name and logo. Get your very own subdomain, e.g., mybeautifulschool.padlet.org or even use your own domain mybeautifulschool.com.
School-wide activity monitoring
Keep tabs on what is going on - what is being created, what is being shared. Know what a student is up to. Catch the mischievous ones.
Bigger file uploads
Want to post a 100MB video? A 50MB photoshop file? Upload files up to 250MB in size. That's 10 times more than what you get on padlet.com.
Your instance of Padlet will be on its own domain, just for your school. It is completely separate from the vanilla padlet.com and can, therefore, be managed by your school/district IT independently. So your IT department can even block access to the more open padlet.com while allowing your controlled Padlet Backpack instance. Win-win for both teachers and IT.
We'll be there for you when the rain starts to pour. If you need help with anything, you can chat with us, call us, Skype with us, email us, write us a letter - whatever rows your boat.
Lots of love
We love you whether or not you use Padlet Backpack. But if you do, we'll send you a hand-written love letter to remove all doubt. When was the last time you got one?
