How to create a Board for students to post and vote (Padlet substitute)?

The Board module for Moodle is a plugin that enables a post-it board activity for students. This is a collaborative activity where the teachers sets out a number of columns with optional names and then students add contributions to columns. 

  • Students do not see who has posted what
  • Nobody can vote on her own posts
  • Contributions can be exported by instructors in excel (with student names) at the board administration

1. Go to the course, Turn editing on > Add an activity and resource and select "Board" from the activities tab.

2. Write instructions into the description field, and add a title. 

Relevant options what can be changed at "board settings":

  •  Rating is enabled by default, you can disable it
  •  You can add a deadline for student posts

Save the form as you are ready.

3. Open the Board and set up how many columns are needed. You can remove them with X and add new ones with +.
Heading titles can be changed with double click and saved with ENTER. 

4. Students can add posts to any column - this is simple text, and an image, link or video can be attached to posts.
