Many of our users already know that paid Haiku Deck subscribers have access to our new feature that lets users search for and embed YouTube videos directly in their presentations. Here are a few examples of Haiku Deck Pro users who have made great use of this new feature to enrich their presentations. Click on the images below to view the examples and look for the triangular ‘play’ button in the bottom right corner of slides that contain videos.
1. “Deadly Illusion“
What we find so effective about this use of a YouTube video is the video’s ability to showcases the cause (the unrealistic expectations of women that photoshopped images create) in a way that stills or words couldn’t. It also captures interest immediately so the presenter will have an easier time arguing his/her case.
2. “The Path To Success“
In The Path to Success, the author uses two videos that give unique and powerful examples injecting emotional energy at key moments in the presentation. Using multimedia to create an emotional response is shown to help make presentations more memorable.
This is a perfect example of an embedded video which would lose almost all of its oomph if the presenter had to take the time to exit and reenter the presentation. But as a video embedded in the final slide, it offers an aesthetically satisfying brand reminder.
4. “Adolescent Stress & Anxiety“
This lesson on stress and anxiety in the teenage brain includes a video from a well spoken expert on the topic, offering the presenter extra ethos and injecting the presentation with greater meaning.
How Can You Embed Youtube Videos?
Once you have a Haiku Deck Pro account, you can embed YouTube videos into your Decks by clicking the “add video” feature on the toolbar (it looks like this.) Then you can paste the link to your YouTube video directly in the white box, or search a term to discover the perfect video from the swath of options our app provides!
