Shuffle and Sort Padlet Notes in Grid Format

Padlet has made a lot of improvements in the last ten days. In addition to flowcharts and focus mode which I featured earlier this week, Padlet has a new grid shuffling option. The grid layout has been available for a long time. The shortcoming of the grid format was that notes always appeared chronologically. Now you can sort the notes that are added to a grid. Watch the following short video to learn how to use the new sorting option in Padlet's grid layout. And to learn more about Padlet in general, check out my playlist of tutorials.


Screencast-o-Matic Now Offers Background Music

Screencast-o-matic has long been my favorite tool for creating screencasts on Windows and Mac computers. This morning I logged into my account and noticed that Screencast-o-matic now offers the option to include background music in your screencast videos. Click here to watch a screencast about this new feature.

Screencast-o-matic's background music option provides a choice of three songs to users of the free version of the service. Screencast-o-matic Pro users have access to the whole library of music and can import their own music. If you're interested in a getting a Screencast-o-matic Pro account I have five discount codes that I give away. Send me an email if you would like to get a Pro account discount (first come, first served). Sorry, all discount codes have been given away.
