A private, more secure instance of Padlet for your school.
We're here to answer all your questions
How do you define a school?
School is basically a simpler way of saying - an educational institute. This includes kindergartens, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, vocational schools, college prep schools, sunday schools, universities. Businesses should use Padlet Briefcase - the same product, but for businesses. If you are not sure if you qualify as a school, contact us and we'll tell you.
Who is a teacher?
Anyone employed with the school is considered a teacher. Sorry for the generalized definition dear teachers, but we had to go for simplicity on this one.
I am a single teacher. Is Backpack meant for me?
Our Pro plans are better for single teachers. No administration required. It just works!
I am a school district. Is Backpack meant for me?
Depending on the size of the district and your requirements, either Backpack or Pro plan may work. Contact us and we will set you up.
Can I integrate with Learning Management Systems (aka LMS)?
Yes. We work with all LTI compatible LMS.
Can I get an official quotation?
Yes of course. Get a quote here.
Do you accept purchase orders?
Yes, for schoolwide accounts. Please email your purchase orders to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I pay by check?
Yes, for schoolwide accounts.
What is your refund policy?
Our simple refund policy is - we'll do what is fair. We make Padlet to make you happy, not to rip you off. For example:
- If you signed up for Padlet Backpack in the last month and are not happy with it, we'll give you a full refund.
- If you were just charged for your next month/year of Padlet Backpack and you meant to cancel, we'll refund you the new charge.
- If you forgot to cancel a couple of months ago and you haven't used Padlet since, we'll give you a refund for the back months, no problem.
- If you pay for the annual plan and want to cancel it 6 months in, we will treat your last 6 months as being on month-to-month plan and refund you the difference.
If your situation is not as clear-cut as above, we are happy to work with you to find a solution that is fair.
I have a lot of data in my vanilla padlet account. Can I transfer that to my Padlet Backpack account?
Of course. Upon signup, one of the first things you'll see is an option to import your data from your vanilla padlet account. This includes all your padlets, posts, and even other accounts you have collaborated with. You can either import everything, or pick piecewise.
If I don't like Padlet Backpack after 30 days, can I put the content I created into my vanilla padlet account?
Yes you can. Just email us at email@example.com.
How do I cancel my account?
Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll cancel your account in less than 24 hours.
