1. Setting up Kami
Install the Kami extension:
📌 Note: If your school or district has purchased a Kami license, this step might have already been taken care of by your tech administrator. You can skip this step if you already have the Kami extension installed in your browser.
Install the Kami for Google Chrome extension here.
If you use Microsoft, install the Kami for Edge extension here.
Sign up or log in to Kami:
To open Kami, click the extension from your browser, or head straight to kami.app
Sign up or log in using your school's email account, either with Google or Microsoft.
If it's your first time logging in, follow the prompts to create a profile and make sure to select Student as your role. This makes sure you don't have any issues with using the Kami app as a student.
2. Open your assignment with Kami
Using the Kami sharing link given by your teacher
Click the Kami Sharing Link you received from your teacher. You'll be taken directly to your own copy of the assignment in the Kami App.
📌 Note: Below is an example only of an email sent by your teacher.
Now that you have your file in Kami, you can start working on your assignment using all of Kami's tools and features.
💡 Tip: Kami automatically saves your work as you go! You can also click the Save button in the top right-hand corner.
3. Share back your Kami assignment
Once you have opened your file in the Kami App, you can immediately share your assignment so that your teacher can see your progress and collaborate with you if need be. Otherwise, you can share it once you have finished working on your assignment.
Follow these steps to get your Kami Sharing Link:
Hit the Share button at the menu bar to open the Sharing settings.
The sharing setting will look like this if your file is in Google Drive. Select Anyone with the link and Editor for the Sharing Permission. Then press the Copy button to copy the Kami sharing link.
If your file is in OneDrive however, the sharing setting will look like this instead. Select My Organization and Editor for the Sharing Link Permission. Then press the Copy button to copy the Kami sharing link.
After copying the Kami Sharing Link, send it back to your teacher for them to open your assignment and grade it. Sending the Kami Sharing Link back differs depending on how your teacher instructed you to do it. Please ask them if you are unsure how.
📌 Note: Below is an example only of an email you reply to your teacher.
