What makes Canva a great Digital Storytelling tool?

Canva is a really impressive suite of graphic design tools available on the web as well as Android and iOS. You can use it to create visual stories that can be delivered in a number of ways for example via social media posts, video, newsletters and more. We particularly like Canva because it easy for beginners to grasp and the Canva Design School has lots of learning resources to help you make the most of this tool.

One interesting tool in Canva’s suite is it Storyboard Creator. A storyboard is a written or graphical representation of the all of the elements that will be included in a digital story. In this way, Canva can be used not only a tool to create digital stories (such as videos) or elements that form a key part of your digital story (images/graphics), you can also use Canva (via its Storyboard Creator) to plan your Digital Stories.
