Haiku Deck Now Offers Syncing of Edits

Haiku Deck, the popular slideshow creation tool, has recently added a long-request feature. You can now sync edits to your slideshows between your iPad and the web version of Haiku Deck. In the updated version of the iPad app all of your presentations will automatically save to your online Haiku Deck account. You can publish your slides publicly or privately. It is important to note that all new presentations will be public by default, so make sure you change the setting if you don't want your slides to be public. Learn more about privacy settings here. The slideshow below provides an overview of the latest Haiku Deck features.

Applications for Education
Haiku Deck has been a favorite app of mine and many others since it launched because of two key features. First, Haiku Deck has an integrated Creative Commons image search that helps students find appropriate images for their presentations. Second, Haiku Deck limits how much text a student can put on a slide. Without the option to create big blocks of text to rely upon, students have to know their material well before they present to the class.
