Abstract: This paper work consolidates the outcomes from the effective implementation of padlet ICT tool for two subjects namely 14ME360 Geometric Modeling and 15UIT503 Graphics and Multimedia for undergraduate engineering, III semester Mechanical Engineering and V semester Information Technology students. It was observed that most of the students are welcoming the use of ICT tools in teaching when compared to conventional method of “chalk-and-talk”. This is due to development of digital technologies for classroom discussions. Out of many ICT tools, here padlet features are used to customize for teaching learning process and the same was implemented. Now-a-days the most of students are driven by technology. One of the important aspects of padlet wall is the availability of “Android App” for mobile use. Also, the usage of this padlet wall is simpler and more effective. We have observed that while implementing ICT tools for teaching learning activities; it should be simple and less numbers of hyperlinks. During the initial phase of this padlet implementation, the students are more reluctant to use this tool. But, within two years, most of the students are used this padlet wall because its simplicity. The different features of padlet and its customization process are given in detail. Finally, the effectiveness of this tool was observed with two different branches of engineering students. The corresponding findings are reported in spite of room for improvements due to the qualitative nature of teaching learning process.
