Earlier this week Canva introduced a couple of new features for adding media into your slides and graphics. One of those features is a new video recording option. You can now record using your webcam and instantly insert that video into your slides and graphics. The video can be cropped in Canva. You can also adjust the transparency, orientation, and layering position of your video within your slides and graphics.
In this short video I demonstrate how to use Canva’s new video recording option.
Applications for Education
As I wrote earlier this week, the new option to record a webcam video in Canva could be useful in adding personal messages to graphics like digital greeting cards or to slides to provide an explanation of charts and graphs.
