ENTRY #3 – Canva

canvaCanva is our third entry in DEN March Madness. DEN STAR Nancy Sharoff nominated this one. Canva is a very easy to use online tool to design and create newsletters, posters, and more. Users can use the custom layouts built in or start their designs with a blank page. Search for the best graphics, photos, and fonts, or upload your own pictures, including images from Discovery Education, then use Canva’s drag and drop tool to create a design. Canva also makes it easy to collaborate with others, letting you share and edit your designs with others.

Here’s a short video about Canva.
