Lucidpress

Lucidpress is a web-based (nothing to install) drag-and-drop publishing and graphic design tool that allows students to create and share both print and digital content.Teachers can use this tool to create their own materials, like parent newsletters or class presentations. For students, Lucidpress is especially useful for group projects that involve collaborating on a poster, report, or digital presentation. Multiple users can work on a project at once, in real time, as well as chat and leave comments. Teachers can request a free Educational account, which is the equivalent of a paid Team or Pro account, and provides access to all features. This is a great tool for upper elementary, middle and high school. The interface is difficult for younger students.
