We’ve rearranged the Applications tab just a bit! (Don’t worry! Everything’s still there, it just looks different.) Because of our LTI release, we now have divided the Applications tab into sub-tabs, organized by Haiku Apps, Partner Apps, and LTI Tools.
New Theme and Library images should now consistently render correctly (even if they use web fonts).
Teachers without an email can now access classes they teach via the Navbar without an error.
HTTPS YouTube URLs should no longer return an “Invalid URL” error in the YouTube block.
Let us know if you have questions! And for those of you whose school year is coming to an end, best of luck, and congratulations!
We’re excited to announce a new release that we pushed last Friday night that’s full of new solutions and improvements.
New feature: Progress Reports for Teachers!
Many teachers have been looking for a way to create semester, quarter, or even spur of the moment grade reports to share with students. The new Haiku Learning Progress Reports feature allows teachers to generate summary or detailed grades reports whenever they are needed. Check it out under the Reports area of the Assess tab, or watch the video.
Email Rosters Improvements
Teachers can now send an email to the roster from the comfort of their own Haiku Learning class, using our new form-based email tool. (And stay tuned! The ability to email sections using this tool is coming up in our next release!)
A hearty congratulations to Michael Williams of Christian Brothers High School in Tennessee! His CBHS Honors Theatre History Online Haiku Learning class garnered him a winning score from our judges. His excellent use of Haiku Assessments and Discussions combined with embedded full video lectures, easy to navigate page structure and a fantastic custom Theme, made this class stand out. Perfect for flipping the class or as a great blended learning support tool, Michael has created a real winner. Nice work, Michael!
For his efforts Michael will be receiving an iPad Mini, a Haiku Learning t-shirt, and a custom graphic badge to let the world know how awesome he is!
We also selected 3 runners up whose classes were nothing short of fantastic. For their hard work, these Haiku Learning vanguards will be receiving a Haiku t-shirt and a graphic badge of honor.
