Haiku (now Powerschool Learning)
A combination of "harmony, simplicity, and community," Haiku (now P Learning after the PowerSchool acquisition) tries to simplify the task of running both classrooms and schools. Cloud-based Haiku allows educators to keep assignments, feedback, and grades online. It uses Google ed apps to essentially streamline what's been done already while also looking ahead to what's new. For example, the new trend of assessing students on standards is already integrated into the system. While the platform is typically purchased for entire schools, teachers can sign up for a free solo account that gives them five classes and 2GB of storage.
