For readers who want to design beautiful posters, invitations, cards, website graphics, lesson plan accoutrements, or any number of other visuals - but who are not trained in the wily ways of professional design programs, Canva can be a welcome boon. The service allows users to choose from a host of templates for everything from presentations to Facebook covers, and then offers intuitive controls and a storehouse of beautiful images to help even nonprofessionals build beautiful materials. While some images are only available for a cost, there are a number of free items throughout the collection. To use the service, sign up with email, Facebook, or your Google account. Then choose whether you would like to use Canva for your work, personal, or educational needs. Educators will be especially interested in the lesson plans available in the Teaching Materials section of Canva's Design School, featuring Workshops, Lesson Plans, and more.
