“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.”
Sometimes it’s the little things that make all of the difference. That’s how we feel about the new Haiku release this weekend. The centerpiece of the updates is our new and revolutionary Themes tool which allows teachers (and eventually students) to fully control the look and feel of their online learning environment. Whether you’re teaching Art History, the American Revolution, or Artificial Intelligence, Haiku Themes will breathe life, personality, and beauty into your classes. And the best part? As the instructor, you’re now building your class within the actual theme… no more “preview” button! This is the largest and most comprehensive design revision that we’ve launched to Haiku and includes countless other refinements throughout the interface.
We think you’re going to love it.
