Use Edcanvas to Organize and Share Educational Materials

Edcanvas is a free service that makes it easy for teachers to organize and share educational materials in a visually pleasing format. The "canvas" part of Edcanvas is where you arrange videos, links, images, and files around any topic of your choosing. Edcanvas has built-in search tools so that you do not have to leave your Edcanvas account in order to locate resources. Watch the thirty-eight second video below to see how easy it is to create an Edcanvas canvas.




Applications for Education
Each of your completed Edcanvas canvases can be shared directly to your students in a number of ways. You can embed your canvas into your classroom blog. You can distribute a QR for your canvas for your students to scan and open on their iPads. Or you can create a classroom code for your canvas and invite your students to view canvases. If you have students sign-up for Edcanvas they could create their own canvases to share with you.
