Whatever your class looks like, Canva helps keep connection with your students strong. For students learning remotely, you can create a presentation or lesson, add your voiceover, and send or share directly as a video link.
Students can also create their own videos or record themselves speaking over their own assignments and projects, keeping the feedback loop strong and making their voices heard.
It works seamlessly with all your classroom tools
Canva works with other go-to classroom tools – import students from Google Classroom or by sharing a class link to Clever. We’re continually adding more.
You can also share your work and assignments to Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams and Remind, or download work to PowerPoint.

When it comes to ensuring the safety of students on the Canva for Education platform, our commitment to the Canva core values means that we’re also committed to doing everything we can to ensure that students can harness the full potential of Canva while remaining completely safe in the content they are able to access within Canva’s libraries. We know that we have a huge responsibility to champion safe, diverse, and appropriate content for the millions of students using Canva for Education worldwide.In order to make this happen, Canva uses a multi-layered set of safeguards to ensure that the content within our Canva for Education platform is safe for school and safe for students. Our system begins with a set of blocked search terms -- those which are clearly inappropriate for school under any circumstances -- which yield no search results within Canva’s libraries when searched by Canva for Education users. This list is revised and updated over time based on emerging trends and language and in response to feedback from districts, as appropriate.Our second layer of protection comes from our use of a best-in-class machine learning platform, which scans our existing collection of millions of photos and graphics to identify, flag, and remove access to “not safe for school” content for Canva for Education users. While Canva is always adding content to our collections, through our collaborations with professional content creators, every single addition to our collections is reviewed by a human content moderator to check compliance with our “not safe for school” definitions.Nothing is perfect in this world, and we won’t claim to be: in the very rare event that a questionable piece of content slips through our filters, we act quickly and responsively based on concerns raised by educators to remove the content and audit our collection for anything similar.
