By Sandra Cerna

Running an Instagram account calls for consistency but determining what to post can be a challenge. Make posting a habit instead of a chore in this intermediate-level course. Learn to create content that entertains, educates, and inspires your audience. Discover how to make a content calendar full of ideas that reflect your business mission; create on-brand templates for Instagram posts, carousels, stories, and reels covers using Canva; make and edit video content including reels, GIFs, and animations using Canva; and create stop-motion videos using the Lifelapse app.  

The Canva platform and the Lifelapse (stop-motion) apps are required tools. Students must have a computer (for the web version of Canva) and smartphone (for the app version of Lifelapse). 

Both come with a 30-day free trial.

This class will be recorded. Please see our FAQ for recording terms and conditions.
