How to use the Kami integration with Schoology to push out assignments to your students.

Updated over a week ago

Kami has an easy-to-use integration to help push out assignments for the students to complete and turn in through Kami after they've used our amazing tools to annotate and complete their work.

Note: This integration uses the Kami Google Chrome extension, and will only work with Chrome Browsers for now.

Step #1: Making sure the extension is installed

The Schoology integration does rely on the Kami Chrome Extension, so that does need to be installed for the Kami option to appear.

If it is not already installed, it can be manually added to chrome using the button here: Chrome Web Store

The extension can also be pushed out by the School /District IT department to all users via the instructions here.

Step #2: Creating the assignment

In Schoology, browse to your course and choose Add Materials -> Add Assignment, and then choose 'Kami' under the Assign From App section.

Once the options open, there will be a choice between using Google Drive or OneDrive as the file storage for the assignment.

Please note whichever file storage is chosen will require the students to have an account set up with that same provider. i.e. An assignment file in OneDrive cannot be opened and saved into the student's Google Drive.

Step #3: Selecting a file

After that is picked the assignment file can be chosen from the File Picker That can be a PDF document, or any file in a format that Kami supports for conversion, e.g. Image Files, Word, Powerpoint, and many other formats.

After the file is added, the assignment can be finished in Schoology the same way a regular assignment would be.

Once that is pushed out, the students are ready to open the file up through Schoology on their Device, and then complete and turn in the work!

Opening Assignments and Turning In Assignments (For Students)

  • Students find assignments as they normally would in Schoology, and when they click on one, there will be a new 'Complete Kami Assignment' button:

  • When Students click that button, Kami will open and load the file. The File will be automatically uploaded to the Student's Google Drive, and also shared with the teacher's Google account, so that they can view the work in progress.

  • Note: The first time a student uses Schoology with Kami, we will ask them to select the Google Drive account for the "Kami Schoology Assignments" folder.

  • Note: If the students come back to Schoology later and click the 'Open Assignment' button again, they will get the same copy of the file so they can continue their work. Students can also open the file with Kami directly from their Google Drive, and continue their work or turn in that way.

  • Once the student has finished their work on the assignment, they can click the 'Turn In' button at the top right inside Kami:

  • This will export the document with their changes, and return them to Schoology, where they can simply click 'Submit' to complete the submission:

  • The file is now attached as a normal Schoology assignment submission, and you can mark it and assign grades using the usual Schoology tools.

Can I see my students' progress in real-time?

You can see your students' work before they turn their work in. When you send your students a Kami Assignment from Schoology, a shared copy of their work will appear in the 'Shared with me' folder in your Google Drive.

Once the students have the assignments completed and turned in, the awesome Kami Grading integration can be used to provide any feedback and guidance the students need.

Grading Assignments using Kami and Schoology

Click on your students' names as they appear under the submissions list on the right side of the assignment page.

Once you're in Schoology's grading view, you can turn on the "Grade with Kami" feature by clicking on the checkbox at the top of the screen. This enables you to give feedback to your student's assignment submission.

And you have now completed the full process!
