How to record a presentation in Canva


Firstly, this is your behind the scenes, step by step tutorial. A couple of weeks ago I introduced this fantastic new feature in Canva, and you asked for a training resource. Today we are going to look at how to record presentations directly in Canva and show you some of the exciting features. You can record a video of yourself speaking inside your presentations! They also have fantastic templates to choose from for when you create your slide deck. There are a variety of options and elements that will make your slides more engaging. [Tutorial video towards the end of the blog.]



Wow…so many great features!


Secondly, the ability to record inside Canva is an efficient way to create a bite size learning resource or a complete pre-recorded presentation.  You can talk on camera, while sharing the presentation, which adds a layer of interest.  There are also many features that you will see as we go over the recording process, in this step by step tutorial.



Other options


Thirdly, there are many possibilities on how creative you can get.  Only your imagination will limit you how far you can go!  We will be doing more in-depth videos in the future to showcase many of the great features that make Canva so much fun to work in. You can also check out our many Canva tutorials in our YouTube playlist. Here are some options to consider:


  • You can add music, elements, animations and more when you create your presentation.
  • Then when you record your presentation within Canva, you are creating a new layer of interest.
  • You also have the ability to live chat, if you share your presentation during a live stream – through Canva.
  • If you share your screen in a live or real time ZOOM meeting, you can also just share the presentation slides – in the different present modes or options. Check out our ZOOM tutorial about only sharing part of your screen.



Why this is fantastic


Our video shows just how fast you can create something wonderful and how easy it is to record, download, copy and share your files.  Having a variety of training tools and presentations ready and available to you in Canva, also means that this is a great back-up option if you are experiencing technical difficulties. If you have to quickly switch devices when you are presenting, you could even share screen via your phone! I will create a tutorial about this in the near future!
