ID&T Technology Review: Haiku Deck

Nicole Marcisz, ID&T


Haiku Deck

Ordering info

  • Sign up at the Haiku Deck website
  • Cloud-based
  • Free version with limited features or $60/year education pricing.


Possible classroom uses
Student or instructor classroom presentations. Good for asynchronous presentations as well.

Haiku Deck is rooted in the basic principles of:
  • Keeping it simple by limiting text and focusing each slide on a single idea. 
  • Making it beautiful by using full-bleed images. Tell your story by tapping into one-touch themes, filters, and formatting. 
  • Having fun. Pitch an idea, teach a lesson, deliver a keynote, or ignite a movement!

You can search for images using the included image database or import your own to create appealing charts and graphs. A presentation can be created on a mobile device such as an iPad or Android tablet and then shared on any web-enabled device. Decks can also be embedded into a website such as an online course or blog. Decks can also be exported PowerPoints and Adobe PDFs.

There are three privacy settings for sharing presentations. The Public setting allows presentations to appear in the gallery and search results.  The Restricted setting allows only people with whom you've shared the link to view. The Private setting allows only you to view the deck. Decks can also be shared in a number of ways including Facebook, Twitter, email, blogs, Keynote, or shared directly by copying the URL.

Haiku Deck lets the user create simple visual lessons or conference presentations. Suggested uses would include classroom presentations, digital storytelling, and group work.
