At Haiku Learning Systems, we're about making teaching and learning online as easy as possible—whether it's in a blended or virtual classroom. Technology has the power to expand and extend education. An LMS should be easy to use, easy on the eyes, and easy on the budget. You have all three in our learning management system, Haiku LMS.
Your content should be your focus—the message, not the medium. People who use Haiku LMS tell us what they want to accomplish, we share ideas with them, and the result is a learning management system that evolves to do what teachers and students need in a simple way. Our team believes that Haiku LMS is the most elegant means to extend your teaching onto the web, and we work hard to keep it that way. We partner with other service providers to make sure we're providing the most value to those who use Haiku.

What We Believe
We believe in working closely with educators to create an environment that enhances the classroom and the teaching-learning experience.
We believe in a lightweight and streamlined software application that follows our rule of the essential 80%. We believe that trying to provide a feature set that serves everyone ultimately yields a complicated and bloated software experience. We choose our features with an eye to the essential and an ear to our users' feedback. (We know what they need because we ask them!)
We believe that Haiku LMS should require little to no training. Users familiar with web interfaces should be able to use Haiku LMS within minutes of signing up. Our goal is to make it possible for teachers to maintain a vibrant classroom website in less than 10 minutes of work per week.
We believe that the best way to serve the education community is to listen closely to what educators need and to respond accordingly. We do this through close partnerships with our users.
We believe that the Internet provides a means of efficient, affordable (in many cases free!) information exchange between teachers, parents, and students. We want to help that happen through quality software.
We believe that Haiku LMS should be free for basic users. More advanced and sophisticated users pay a minimal fee that pays our bills.
We believe that Haiku LMS would not be possible if not for the many volunteers who help Haiku grow and evolve.
How We Do It
We offer a hosted, on-demand service because we believe that many can benefit from the use of off-site services. This is because:
- It lessens the load on often overburdened tech staff.
- It allows many districts to pool resources, thus reducing costs.
- It allows for instant distribution of new features based on the suggestions of our users.
