To enhance our Schoology integration, we recently rolled out a new version which includes the many benefits over the existing integration such as:
Feature Control for assignments
Support for iPad users
Support for copying assignments across courses
Supports for co-teachers
Better file organisation
Please follow the instructions below to try out this version today!
Tip: Make sure you've got the Kami Chrome extension installed for a more seamless integration experience.
Creating Kami Assignments
On the Schoology Course page, click Add Materials, and then click Kami in the dropdown.
Now you should see the Kami assignment dialog where you can create an assignment by selecting a file from Google Drive or OneDrive, you also have the option to use one of our Kami Library resources directly from here or upload a file from your computer/device.
Tip: You have the option to do Assessment Mode, which will allow you to view the student's work prior to submission, this also allows you to interact with the students work prior to submission.
The Control Features can be used to turn on/off Kami tools for this particular assignment. This feature gives teachers the option to choose which tools they want their students to use for a particular assignment.
Fill out the rest of the section before clicking Continue.
Once you click continue it will prompt you to "Save Changes" in the schoology assignment viewer, remember to do this so the assignment is fully created.
Optionally, you can click the newly created assignment and click the Edit Template button to make some changes or additions to the assignment file before your students access the assignment.
Monitoring and Grading
To monitor students' progress in real-time, or to grade their work, open the Kami assignment in Schoology and click Open Grader.
In the Kami Grader, you'll be able to monitor student's work even before they click the submit button.
Note: The "Opened" status under the student's name means that they have yet to submit their work.
When you're ready for grading, simply enter a grade number and a comment, then click Post to finish. That grade and comment will also be shown in the grade book.
To grade or monitor another student's work, simply click on their name in the Kami Grader to load the student's copy of the assignment.
We'd love to hear your feedback!
