Canva and Instructure have teamed up to make it easier for users to create and share engaging designs directly via their Canvas LMS. Canva for Education is working to transform how educational content is created. Teachers and students alike can bring their ideas to life with over 60,000 ready-to-use educational templates from presentations, posters, newsletters, worksheets, lesson plans, book reports, infographics, and more. It’s free for K-12 districts, teachers, and students and heavily discounted for higher education institutions.
“At Canva, our mission is to empower the world to design and when it comes to education that means making it easier for educators and students to create and share their designs directly through Canvas as the learning management system,” said Jason Wilmot, Head of Education at Canva. “We’re proud to provide Canva for Education 100% free for K-12 districts, teachers and students across the globe.”
InSpace, a leading online communication platform built by educators for educators, recently announced full integration with Canvas. The integration means that the features developed by InSpace, including video-conferencing for learning and socializing, synchronous and asynchronous chat functions, mobile notifications, and virtual office hours for professors and administrators, will be available at the click of a button for Canvas users.
“Educators overwhelmingly told us that they wanted better ways of connecting with their students by creating virtual communities with course study spaces and having virtual offices for professors and administrators,” said Narine Hall, the CEO of InSpace and a professor of data science and machine learning at Champlain College. “InSpace is a solution that complements teaching—it adds flexibility, without disrupting learning. Integrating with Canvas enables us to quickly bring these benefits to the largest group of educators and students.”
