Canva for Canvas: Make Beautiful Banners for Your Canvas Course!

October 26, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

Canva is a free graphic design site for those of us who aren’t graphic designers. We will showcase a few banners and graphics and then discuss which templates work well for different purposes in Canvas. You will learn how to find and edit designs, add your own images if you wish, and bring your completed creations into your Canvas course. Lastly, we will cover alternative text for accessibility and the secret to making banners responsive to different screens sizes. If you are looking for ways spice up your pages or would like to add a design theme to your course, this is the session for you!

By the end of this session, participants will be able to design banners in Canva; integrate an accessible banner into a Canvas page.

  1. Hi Tracy,

    I just found this archived video on using Canva in Canvas. I would love access to the pre-made banners. Is there any way I could get a link to access these?
