More about this course


In this class you'll learn how to make short vertical videos using Canva and Canva Pro. While these videos can be uploaded to YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media platforms, this class is tailored for YouTube shorts.

YouTube shorts are vertical videos that are less than 60 seconds. An introduction to YouTube shorts is provided in one of the class lessons. They can be uploaded from your phone or computer. In this class, you'll become familiar with the process of creating short videos, adding animation, formatting text, and learning about the templates available on Canva. And finally, the class will focus on using the phone to create short videos so that you can work on your video projects no matter where you are.

Specifically, you will learn the following:

  • How to create videos that meet the YouTube shorts criteria
  • How to use templates to make videos quickly
  • How to use animation to make videos that stand out and keep people watching
  • How to time each video segment


While any skill level can take this course, it's helpful if you already have an understanding of how to edit video. You should also have a Canva account, free or paid. It would also be helpful if you have a minimal understanding of how to use Canva.
