Haiku Deck is a free web-based presentation software platform that makes it easy to create highly visual slide decks. Haiku Deck doesn’t get caught up in the camera panning zooms and crazy animations of Prezi, but instead focuses on high quality images and simple text. Access to these images is built right into and included with Haiku Deck, for free. Of course, there are paid additional options within the app, but you’ll probably find the free options more than enough. The app is relatively simple, so you’ll give up some of the customizing options you might have with a more powerful program like Keynote, but the elegant designs might win you over. Haiku Deck also has an iPad app. Give it a try. Let me know what you think.

This is a post from my ongoing effort every Wednesday to highlight apps, web services, and vendors that may be of interest to higher education and student affairs professionals. I do not work for these companies, nor do I always endorse them, per se, but am sharing them to highlight tools that others may find useful. Have an example to share? Tweet me.
Thanks so much for the highlight, Paul, we appreciate it! There are so many different ways educators have used Haiku Deck and we’ve compiled a whole year’s worth of classroom projects here: https://blog.haikudeck.com/year-of-inspiration-for-educators/ Hope you enjoy!

Paul, Thanks for sharing. I was impressed with the presentation clarity–simple. I’ll have to play around with it. Cutting down to few words will take work…but good work.
The tool definitely helps… It almost guides you towards more simple styles.
