Version 5.8.0: Course Catalog, Safe Exam Browser and Senior Systems Plug & Play (28 May 2011)

 New

  • Safe Exam Browser: Teachers can now require students to take assessments in Safe Exam Browser (SEB). SEB is a lockdown browser that helps prevent copying and pasting answers to and from the test among other security features. Your school’s Haiku administrator enables the option to use Safe Exam Browser, and educators say when it’s required.
  • Course Catalog: If you’ve put together a stellar professional development program and are ready to enroll participants, Haiku provides an easy way to package your classes and process online payments. The Course Catalog is basically an online shopping cart, your classes the products. Schools set up the courses, and participants sign up, pay, and get started in a few simple steps!
  • Senior Systems Plug & Play: You have another option when it comes to Plug & Play Student Information System (SIS) integrations: My Backpack™ Web Portal. Haiku will automatically sync with your SIS - no .csv required! All you need to get rolling is your username and password, and an open port in your firewall. Many thanks to The Madeira School and St. Mary’s Episcopal School for helping make this enhancement possible.
