Canva is a useful web-based tool for creating images, presentations and infographics. You will be using a free class account managed by your teacher. You wont need to press any ‘sign up’. You will only be able to use the Canva free images, but will be able to upload your own for use within Canva.

Check these tutorials for the basics.
