Chloe asked:

Can I use an iPad instead of a laptop as I don't own one?


iPad: Portable, touch-friendly, great for sketches & edits. Limited features for complex projects. Laptop: Powerful, full Canva experience, comfy typing & multitasking. Less portable. Choose your creative weapon!

helen asked:

I would like to use Canva for creating LinkedIn Carousel, will this course cover that?


Hey Helen, While the course primarily focuses on creating Instagram carousels, the techniques and principles taught are easily transferable to LinkedIn carousels! Yes, the skills learned in this course can absolutely be applied to creating LinkedIn carousels. The core concepts of design, layout, typography, and branding remain consistent across platforms. The main difference is in dimensions: LinkedIn carousel: Can use either square (1080 x 1080) or portrait (1920 x 1080) dimensions.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
