Steps on how to push out assignments using the Canvas LTI Integration

Updated over a week ago

Creating Kami Assignments is as easy as clicking a button, but before you can start, make sure you have the Canvas LTI Integration.

Once the integration is installed, you can create a Kami Assignment directly inside Canvas.


How to create a Kami Assignment in Canvas

1. Open the Canvas Assignment page

Go to one of your Courses, and under the Assignments page, click the +Assignment button. This will open up a new Canvas Assignment.

Once you've opened a new Canvas Assignment, fill in all the usual fields and then scroll down until you see the Submission type section. Set the submission type from Online to External Tool.

After the submission type is switched, you will see a Find button that will let you add a Kami Assignment to Canvas.

2. Select material to assign

Now, you should see the Kami assignment window where you can create an assignment by selecting a file from Google Drive or OneDrive, and you also have the option to use one of our Kami Library resources directly from here or upload a file from your computer/device.

At the bottom of this window, we've added some features to help students and to allow the teacher more customization when creating an assignment:

Assessment Mode

Picking this option will allow you to set a Due Date for the assignment and restrict the student's access after they Submit it. You can restore their access by Returning the graded file.

✏️ Choosing a due date will automatically submit all assignments back to the teacher once time's up.

Enable Real-time Monitoring

This option allows you to view your Students' work before they even submit their Assignments.

✏️ You will see two submissions in the Canvas grading viewer from the student once they submit their work. The second submission is the students real submission, we create an initial submission so you can view the work in real time

Control Features

Picking this option lets you select or unselect tools you'd like your students to have in their toolbox for that specific assignment. You can learn more about Control Features in this article.

3. Assign your Kami Assignment

Once you click the Continue button, you will be brought back to the Configure external tool pop-up. Pressing the Select button will attach the Kami Assignment to Canvas and close the pop-up. Now you can go back and tweak any other Canvas settings you want for this particular assignment. When you're done, please remember to click the Save & publish button to push out the Assignment to your students.

And... You're all done! Your students should now have access and can start working on their assignments by following this article.
