Back in June of 2013, I wrote a brief post about Haiku Deck, which at the time was simply a free iPad app for creating and showing presentations. In the last 3 years, Haiku Deck has evolved to include web-hosted presentations (and the ability to create presentation through a web-based interface). Unfortunately, if you want to be able to create more than 3 presentations you’ll now have to pay. The most affordable option is signing up for a “Pro” account for $10 a month (though teachers and students can get a 50% discount). I like Haiku Deck, but I don’t think it’s worth $60 a year for how I use it when I present.
However, they’ve recently introduced an option they’re calling “Haiku Deck Classroom,” which — for $99 a year — allows one teacher with up to 150 students to take advantage of all of the features available through a Pro account. For a class in which students are creating presentations on a regular basis (and in which the teacher would like to be able to keep track of all of their students’ presentations), this sounds like a pretty good option.
The company has provided this 3-minute screencast explanation of how to set things up:
Are you a Haiku Deck user? What’s been your experience? Does the $99 “Classroom” option sound like something you’d be interested in? Please let us know your thoughts in the comments.
