Are you ready to level up your Schoology experience? In this video, you’ll learn how to create Kami assignments in Schoology and easily share them with your students.
Hiya, I’m Vanessa. I’m on the community team here at Kami and I love supporting and cheering on our educators. But more importantly, I love sharing top tips to make your lives even easier. Today I’m going to show you how Kami and Schoology works so well together. Getting set up is super simple, just make sure you and your students have the Kami extension installed. First, let’s dive straight into Kami and start creating an assignment for our class. For this assignment, I’m going to use this Bubble Map Template from the Kami Library. As you can see, I’ve already added in text boxes invoice comment instructions, but I want to add one more touch before I sign it out to my students. So I’m going to use the Add Media tool to drop an image in the middle. Another awesome thing about Kami is that all your work is automatically saved to either your Google Drive or OneDrive to a specific Kami Uploads folder, keeping all your Kami files in one place. Now that the assignment is ready to be assigned, let’s click on the Sharing button up here. Here you can see your unique Kami sharing link general sharing permissions, plus download and print permissions. I’m going to copy the unique sharing link. And now we’re ready to move on to the next step in Schoology. So let’s hop on over there.
Here we are in Schoology. With that Kami link and I copied earlier, I can quickly create an update in Schoology for quick collaboration. I’m going to click the link button, paste in the Kami link and give it a title and click Attach. I can also hit the bell button. If I want to make it an announcement. I want to make this an assignment. So I’m going to go to materials and from the drop down menu, I’m going to select the Kami option. It’s really important that you remember the steps so you get the full Kami experience. From here I’ll choose my file and I know where my work is because conveniently Kami saves everything to my Kami Uploads folder. So we’ll go to Google Drive and I’ll grab that file. I also have the option to control features where I can adjust the camera tools my students can access to complete the assignment, I’m actually only going to allow my students to use a few Kami tools to complete this assignment. And here is my Schoology window. Here I can confirm the due date, choose a category and I will save the changes. My assignment has now been sent out to my students. If you ever want to make any edits to your newly created assignment, click the Edit Template button to make some changes to your file before your students access to the assignment. Students received their assignment as normal in Schoology, and they can click the assignment directly to open it into Kami. Over on the toolbar, you can see the Feature Control selections that I’ve put in place. Once they finish their assignment, they can click Submit and see the celebratory confetti. Now that we’re ready to grade, open the Kami assignment in Schoology and click Open Grader. Here you’ll be able to monitor student’s work even before they click the Submit button. So make sure to take full advantage of this awesome feature when needed. I’ve marked up and left some feedback already. So to finish it off, I’ll leave a grade comment and hit post.
And there we have it. Now you’re ready to start your first Kami assignment with Schoology remember to have fun with your own content and Chemi create dynamic learning experiences and let me help you keep making connections. Thanks for tuning in.
