Activities conducted in classrooms are important to acquire studentsâ€™ understanding and participation in a learning environment. Some of perceived barriers that prevent students to participate in classroom activities include difficulty to speak, shy, fear to interact or provide comments. This paper focuses on using Padlet for e-learning and presents the activities of engaging and stimulating students in active learning. This is one way of how instructors can obtain information from each student by encouraging participation. The research employs quantitative approach. A semi-structured questionnaire was distributed among 39 postgraduate students who enrolled in the Business Statistics for Data Science course. Factors such as motivation, active learning, collaboration, learning opportunity, usefulness, ease of use, and satisfaction were used to measure their engagement. The findings show that active learning through Padlet has a significant effect on improving studentsâ€™ engagement in classroom activities.
