Canva is another web tool you can use with your students to create mini-posters for your class. Canva is easy to use and has user friendly interface. The process of creating a visual through Canva is as simple as drag and drop. Canva provides you with a wide variety of images and clip arts that you can modify to suit your purposes. You can even upload your own images to use as background in your graphics.

There are different ways to use Canva in your class. You can , for instance, create a mini poster explaining a learning process, or use it to design flyers advertising a classroom event. You can also use Canva to create covers for your presentations.

To start using Canva, you need to register. Registration is free and all you need is an email and a password. Once registered you can then pick a design from the collection provided there. There are designs for presentations, covers, and flyers and blog graphics.

Once you selected your design, give it a title and proceed to the customization of your template by choosing a layout, add text, add a background or upload your image. You can also use the plus and minus buttons to set the size of your poster.

When your poster is ready you can either download it in PDF or PNG format or share it with others using a link.  You can also share it via Facebook or Twitter. Bear in mind that all the posters you download for free will have Canva watermark on them. To remove the watermark, Canva charges you a dollar for the download.
