Who can use Kami's Microsoft Teams integration?
This feature is available to users with a Kami Teacher, School, or District Plan. It also requires you to be a Microsoft Teams user.
Want to try it out? Follow these easy steps.
1. Add the Kami app to your Microsoft Teams
Teachers must have the Kami app installed to be able to do anything Kami related in Microsoft Teams:
Click the “Apps” button.
Click the search bar and type in "Kami".
On the right, you will see the option to select the Kami app.
Follow the prompts to install the Kami app.
2. Using the Kami app to create channel tab assignments
To create an assignment you have to do it from a particular team. Select your team, then follow these three steps:
Select the Channel you want to make the tab under.
Select the "+" button at the top right.
Once you select that, it will give you a pop-up to search for the app you want to use. Search for Kami in the search bar at the top then select the Kami app.
3. Selecting your file to assign
The next step is to use the Kami app to add your desired file to this channel tab:
Once you select the Kami app you will get presented with the option to add your file.
You can either:
Select a OneDrive File, or
Create a Blank File or page in Kami
Note: The file picker doesn't currently work on the desktop Teams app.
If you selected a file from OneDrive, it will appear below the "Choose File" button. Click "Save" to add it to the assignment.
There is no grading/return option for Channel Tab Kami assignments, but you are able to give feedback. Here is how to view the student work and give feedback:
Once the student opens the file of an individual copy assignment tab their name will appear on the right hand side under "Microsoft Teams Copies":
If you click on their name it will open their individual copy of the file and their work will be present:
You can give instant feedback on their individual copy and they will be able to view the feedback.
Remember, all your annotations are saved and synced in real-time, so students can also see your feedback if they choose to jump back on their turned-in work in Kami.
