Paid plan - Using Kami + Google Classroom Integration to push out Assignments to Students 🔒
Kami has a free version, and a paid version for educators. This article shows how to use Kami with Google Classroom on the paid version. The paid version includes deeper integration to Google Classroom, such as the built-in "Turn In" button, and assignment creation and customization. These upgrades substantially improve the usability of Kami with Google Classroom, for example, the "Turn In" button prevents students from turning in the wrong file.
To be able to use this you must have:
1. Google Classroom set up.
2. The Kami Chrome extension and app installed in both your and your students' Chrome browser. To install go to the Chrome Web Store , or use the Google Admin panel to deploy:
With the new Kami integration, there will be two main ways to create a Kami assignment:
Step #1: Creating The Kami Assignment (Teachers)
You need to go to the "Classwork" tab in your Classroom course, then click the "Create" button in Classroom, and then select "Kami assignment" from the list of options.
To open the front page of the app and select the "Create Classroom Assignment" button.
Step #2: Select Material To Assign (Teachers)
Either of these options will take you to the assign screen, which looks similar to the Google Classroom assign screen. You can create a title, add instructions, and attach a file using Google Drive or a local file. This will create an assignment within Classroom as well. We recommend selecting "Make a copy for each student" (selecting "Students share one copy" means they will all be annotating the original).
We've also added some new features to help the student,s with setup, device compatibility, and to allow the teacher more customization when setting up the assignment.
While you are creating assignments, there are a couple of features that can help customize the assignment and help the students with getting started.
The first option available is the “Send Kami Instructions to Students”. This attaches a one-page Google Doc to the assignment with instructions for setting up Kami and getting started for the students to help get started with the assignment.
The second option is “Add Links for Mobile Devices” which attaches an extra link into the assignment that functions as an “open with Kami” button. This option is specifically designed for users who will be working from Ipads or similar model devices where the extension cannot be installed. See the article here for more information.
And the final option available is the Feature restrictions. These can be used to customize the toolbar available to the students for a specific assignment.
Once you click on the button, it will give you a list of the various tools and sub-options for each, and you can toggle them on or off as needed. Only the selected tools will appear for the students, but as the teacher, you will still have the entire toolbar available when grading.
Once you've got the assignment set up, you push Assign, and the Assignment goes out to the students.
Now let's cover what the students see on their side.
Step #1: Opening Your Kami Assignment (Students) The students can open the file directly from Classroom into Kami. If the students have the Google Chrome extension installed, they can open the file into Kami directly from the preview window.
Step #2: Opening And Completing Your Kami Assignment (Students)
After opening the file, students are then able to complete their work using the Kami tools. See this collection for ideas on using the Kami tools for different subjects.
Step #3: Turning In Your Work For Grading (Students)
When the student is finished with their work they can then turn in the assignment directly into Classroom from Kami.
To turn in the file, the student can click the "Save" button in the top right corner and then select Turn In . This will force save the student's annotations and turn in the assignment into Google Classroom.
The main advantage of this feature is that it cuts down the steps needed to turn an assignment in. For example, students no longer need to manually save their annotations or worry about Kami's dual saving system.
Note : This is an upgraded feature. For information on how to use the free version of Kami, see this article: http://help.kamihq.com/google-classroom/how-to-use-the-free-version-of-kami-with-classroom
