Kami is a digital learning platform that empowers everyone to love learning!

In or out of the classroom, Kami provides tools to support any learning style, drive engagement, and streamline feedback and assessment workflow to improve learning outcomes for all.

“As an all-in-one tool, you can spend less time learning a million new ones, and more time with your students.”

Start teaching with Kami and you’ll find heaps of new ways to level up your documents, PDFs, images, activity sheets (or any other learning resources) to interactive and engaging learning environments. From here, you and your students can collaborate in real-time through live annotations, video and audio recordings, drawings, and much, much more. 

But it doesn’t end there.
Joining Kami means joining a support crew of millions of teachers worldwide, already part of our thriving community. 

Sound like a bit of you?
Let’s break down how you can start enhancing your classroom with Kami!

Why Kami?

Kami is built for teachers by teachers. We’ve come this far thanks to the endlessly valuable comments, feedback, and support from our Kami community. This is how we know Kami will just work for you and your students, in and out of the classroom.

Every student succeeds
Kami sets every student up for success, regardless of ability, by providing inclusive and intuitive tools that support any learning style: 

  • Text-to-speech
  • Voice-typing
  • Freehand drawing
  • Audio and video comments

By empowering students to learn their own way, Kami keeps a class engaged and inspired, whether that’s in-person, remote, or blended.

Resources are elevated
Physical or digital; Kami can work with any documents or file types you’re already comfortable using (like PDFs, slides, spreadsheets, or image files) and elevate them from static resources to interactive learning spaces where teacher and peer collaborations can flourish. Plus, you’ll never be on your own; embracing Kami means you can share exciting new resources with any teacher in our community. 

Teachers save time
Less time spent handling endless stacks of paper means more time for your students, your lessons, and yourself! Kami keeps things simple by seamlessly integrating with your LMS including Google Classroom, Canvas, Schoology, and Microsoft Teams, to power a streamlined assessment workflow and real-time collaboration. 

But don’t just take our word for it; teacher’s love spreading the Kami word:

Schools save money
Embracing Kami means saying “see-ya” to all costs associated with traditional, paper-based methods like printing, copying, and filing. And trust us – those costs add up! Plus, you can get all our essential tools without the high price point. There are several different license options available depending on how you’re looking to use Kami. You can find more information about that on our pricing page

The environment gets a break
Going digital has obvious benefits, not just for our modern students and workflow – but also for our planet! Reduce wasteful paper practices and start looking towards a digital future.
