How to Create an Audio Slideshow Video in Canva

Canva is a graphic design tool that I've used for years to create blog post and social media graphics. In the last year I've started to use it more and more for developing presentations and creating short videos. Canva offers a library of music that you can easily incorporate into your presentations. Those presentations can then be exported as video files to play wherever you like. In the following short video I demonstrate how to create an audio slideshow video in Canva.

Applications for Education
Audio slideshow videos are a popular thing to make at this time of year to recap the school year. If you're looking for a quick and easy way to create this style of video for an end-of-year event, give Canva a try.
