Clifton, NJ - June 24, 2022 - A favorite of students and educators alike, Canva for Education has partnered with ClassLink to bring their free creativity and collaboration tool to schools everywhere.

This new partnership makes it quick and simple for districts to add students to Canva for Education so they can create, share, and review engaging assignments.

“A critical investment in the future of creativity in the classroom has become a huge global focus – it’s one Canva cares deeply about. We're proud to partner with ClassLink to make it easy for school districts around the world to easily get started with Canva in the classroom."

Jason Wilmot
Head of Education, Canva

Now both ClassLink and non-ClassLink schools using Canva for Education can automate rostering to the Canva Platform. Non-ClassLink schools can use ClassLink Roster Server Lite, which uses the OneRoster open data standard to manage rostering data.

ClassLink empowers educators to deliver on the promise of education technology with innovative tools while Canva is an online design tool with a mission to empower everyone through design. This partnership with Canva for Education allows students and teachers to brainstorm, design, and create more easily and effectively.

“Empowering students and educators through creativity and collaboration is a mission both ClassLink and Canva for Education take seriously, making this partnership a natural fit. We’re incredibly proud to bring Canva for Education to creators in schools across the country through this partnership, demonstrating our enduring commitment to connecting learners with the high-quality resources they need to succeed in school and beyond.”

Patrick Devanney
Senior VP of Strategy and Partnerships, ClassLink

Once Canva for Education syncs with Roster Server Lite, the Canva platform will have all the schools, teachers, students, classes, and corresponding enrollments updated automatically daily. Teachers will have their corresponding school and class data when they log into Canva. In addition to helping teachers save time when getting students started with Canva for Education, Roster Server Lite also allows IT teams more flexibility when connecting students to Canva’s many capabilities.

If you’re a ClassLink customer, Canva for Education can be added to your LaunchPad today, from your app library, at no additional cost.
