Canva on Canvas for Teachers

Teachers can seamlessly create, share designs, and set up assignments within your Canvas course using your Canva for Education account.

  • From your Canvas course, navigate to any area with a Rich Content Editor where you would like to insert a Canva product. (Pages, Assignments, Quizzes, Discussions, or Announcements.)
  • Click on the External Tool icon > select Canva for Education.
  • Note: If this is your first time using Canva for Education, click on View All, then select Canva for Education. You may be prompted to sign into Canva. Follow the instructions to set up your Canva for Education account using your DOE account.

  • Once Canva launches, click + Create a design or select a design you already created. (Note: If you have already created a design in a personal Canva account 
  • If you create a new design, once finished, click Publish to Canvas.
  • Choose between embed your Canva design directly in Canvas or just share as a link.
  • Select whether you would like students to just View design only or view as a New design for each student. This will function like a "template" which creates an editable copy of the design for each student.
  • Add appropriate details depending on the type of product you are creating (Assignment, Pages, Announcement, Discussion, Quiz) > Save as a draft or Save & Publish.
  • Note: When creating Assignments requiring students to create a Canva product, in Submission Type, select Online > select Website URL > then click Save to save as a draft or Save & Publish to finish setting up the assignment.
  • See Teach with Canva for helpful tutorials to learn the many ways to use Canva in your course.
