The availability of technology in education provides various ways to assess and keep any documents of learning progress and result as well, such as portfolio as one of the authentic assessments. This study, then, reviews Padlet as one of many applications that can be implemented to accommodate students’ uniqueness during online learning in this pandemic era.
