The University has an institutional licence for Padlet (called Padlet Backpack) which allows all staff and students to create a free account with their CCCU or KMMS email address, username, and password. Please ensure that you use your @canterbury.ac.uk email address. Accounts created in this way allow users to access all free and premium content! Scroll through the following guide to see how to create an account in this way (page 1), and what to do if you need to move Padlets created from an earlier personal account into your CCCU one (page 2).

Important Note: Once your account has been created, do not change your email address away from your CCCU or KMMS account. This may break your account and result in lost Padlets that may become unrecoverable.
