Kami starts the new school year with over 12 million users

Auckland, New Zealand (August 25, 2020) — Today, we are thrilled to announce that Kami is now serving over 12 million users worldwide, growing from ten million users last May

Amid the challenges of a global pandemic, our teams in New Zealand, Brazil, the Philippines, and United States have worked tenaciously to scale our systems, processes, and organization to support millions of educators and students who utilize our tools to improve classroom engagement and collaboration. 

For several years, our users adopted Kami to transition into a paperless learning environment. Now, as we continue to shape the future of education, we are humbled and thankful that our users have continued to trust Kami as they navigated the shift to full-time remote learning.

User feedback has always been at the forefront of our innovations here at Kami. Last month, we have announced the release of new product features, including an awaited integration with the Microsoft 365 and OneDrive environment, and we are committed to delivering these improvements to ease the transition to a new kind of back-to-school.

“Our district has been 1:1 with Chromebooks K-12 for two years, but implementing Kami has been a game-changer for our teachers,” says Jami Vick, District Technology Integration Specialist at Mountain Home School District. “The shift from students being the consumers of content to students actively learning using a digital tool in their daily routines has been exciting to witness. The change to distance learning in March created the need for digital tools such as Kami, but the teachers in our district have overwhelmingly requested that we continue to have access to Kami. Our teachers have seen the value of creating meaningful learning through interactive digital experiences regardless of the instruction mode for the upcoming school year.”

The team at Kami would like to thank all of our customers for the support.
