Canva Convert

When I first started using Canva a few years ago, I was, well, rather meh about the whole experience. I wanted to make YouTube channel art for my professional writing course, and I muddled through with a series of free icons in complementary colors.

This semester, however, I’m making new graphics every week! I change out the header for my online freshman writing class with important reminders:

Exercise deadline reminder

Midterm Exam reminder

Week 10 topic announcement with activity reminder

Week 11 topic

I also have turned to Canva to create graphics for Kahoot! review quizzes for my capstone English majors and minors. Students need to recognize specific passages from major works of American and British literature, and it’s easy to paste in the text I need with some labeled-for-reuse images:

quote from Waiting for Godot

Who wrote it? Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot

first four lines of The Negro Speaks of Rivers

Who wrote it? Langston Hughes, “The Negro Speaks of Rivers”
