Technology Tips of the Week: Kami Chrome Extension (free version)
I have talked to a few teachers who were looking for a way to send a .PDF to students in Google Classroom and have the ability for them to complete the .PDF and pass it back in. Initially, I thought of using Adobe Acrobat Pro, but it would require everyone have this program. After some Googling online, I found Kami. Kami is a free, .pdf annotator that can also be used to highlight text, add text, or draw over a .pdf.
Here a few things to know if you add the chrome extension…
Click HERE to see KAMI in the Chrome Web Store. Please watch the tutorial on installing the extension. When you add Kami, I would suggest to go into the Options Settings and UNCHECK that it opens all .pdfs automatically.
There is a 14-day “free trial” that allows for integration with Google Classroom in a streamlined way. See here.
If you want to use the FREE version with Google Classroom, there are a few steps you need to take.
Kami was recently pushed out to the Freshman Chromebooks! I hope to see how we can integrate this tool more in class!
