Five Ways to use Canva That May Impress You

Canva is a wonderful site for design and creation.

Canva is web-based with apps available for Chromebooks and iPads. Use Canva to create professional documents of all sorts with more than 1 million photos, icons and layouts available. Drag and drop functionality makes Canva easy to use with a free Design Essentials Tutorials Course to help users learn how to use Canva

Here are 5 ways to use Canva that you may not know about:
