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 Teacher as your role. This makes sure you get extra features and tools that are only for Teachers.
2. Creating your assignment in Kami
Starting from scratch:
Open the Kami App and start creating your assignment from a blank page or by using one of Kami's amazing resources from the Kami Library. Visit our Kami Tools & Features YouTube playlist to learn more about what you can do with Kami.
Using your own file:
Upload your file to Google Drive or OneDrive, then simply open your file to the Kami App and use the Kami Tools to enhance your assignment before sending it to your students.
Sending the assignment to your students:
Once you are happy with your assignment file, follow the steps below to learn how to do assignments using Kami without an integrated LMS (Google Classroom, Canvas, or Schoology).
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 Create individual copy 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 Create individual copy for the Sharing Link Permission. Then press the Copy button to copy the Kami sharing link.
After copying the Kami Sharing Link, you can now send this link to your students to use. Send it through an email, an LMS you use that doesn't have a Kami integration, any other platform, or communication line with your students. Below is an example of an email.
Your students can share their individual file copies with you immediately even if they have yet to work on their assignment. They simply need to follow the steps of this guide here.
Once you get their Kami Sharing Link, use it to open their file in the Kami App. Doing this gives you the ability to monitor their progress whenever you want and grade their work using the Kami Tools after they finish working on their assignment. Don't forget to hit the Save button to ensure that any changes you made are saved to the file.
