With the proliferation of online creative applications, anyone can design visuals easily, from younger students to teachers. Here are some simple tools to visually enhance your next digital document. 

On the web, there are many graphic design platforms used to create various types of visual content; think of EDIT.org, Can go, Adobe spark or Crellofor example. However, not all of them have the same degree of simplicity for beginners in the field. Which one is your favorite?

While most visual creation platforms allow for a multitude of options, most of the time users need them to create posts for their social networks, or to create business cards and infographics for class. 

But what does this have to do with the education of online visual design tools?

A design tool helps teachers and students create images, flyers, banners, motivational quotes and more. The majority of such applications are accessible via a web browser. Some can also be used on a smartphone or tablet, via a dedicated app. The user with an account can usually switch to a laptop or desktop and continue. This also means that young people as well as teachers can also access it, with various devices.

These design tools use templates to help even novices create attractive images and posters, motivational quotes, etc. It's a great way to present information for both teachers and students in educational projects. 

How to use one of these platforms

For each of the platforms mentioned at the beginning of the article, it is easy to find tutorials and presentations to get started. 

For example, on EDIT.orgYou can get started quickly by using one of the objectives or models proposed on the home page:

Then, it is best to create an account to save the work and update it as needed.

Now comes the fun part! The user chooses the type of design he wants, he arrives at the editor page and he can start creating.

This is what the editor would look like on these platforms. Here, it is possible to start from an existing or blank template, then import images or directly edit other creations already made.

Finally, all that remains is to save and download your creations. First you name your creation (function available at the top of the screen), then you can download it using the button also located in the upper right corner. A drop-down menu will appear to allow you to choose the type of file to upload (usually a PNG or a PDF). 

And now it's your turn to play and let your imagination run wild!
