Plano Learns: Deep Dive into Canva
Are you trying to boost your marketing toolkit? Make a brand package for easy promotions? That’s where Canva comes in, and you can learn how to use Canva from the library.
Canva is an online graphic design platform, used to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, documents, videos and other visual content. There are templates, stock images and video, and many other tools to help you achieve your branding and promotional goals. Canva has a simple drag-and-drop format, and you can upload your own images, videos and fonts in addition to using what is available.
Canva has been around since 2012, and over the years has added a plethora of features to make this a powerhouse of a marketing tool, especially for people who aren’t particularly design-savvy or have the time to create content from scratch. Canva has different plans, including free accounts, team accounts, and even options for educators and non-profits.
We have previously taught an introductory class on Canva, which you can watch on the library’s YouTube channel:
