Integration Solutions for Partners
Make it easy for customers to share roster, course, and grades data with your application. Kimono continuously exchanges data between the SIS and your application over a publish & subscribe architecture that supports a growing number of industry-standard data models, infrastructures, and APIs. Choose the data model and integration method that works best for your app, and connect to any SIS.

The Kimono solution is the only comprehensive, real-time integration for Canvas. Not only does the Kimono integration connect Canvas to the district’s student information system (SIS) to enable real-time roster synchronization with grade pass back, it also supports the district’s optional elements, mappings, and customizations. This includes per-building configuration, course names per school, automated cross-listing of courses and sections, term management, and pre-term drops. No other solution supports a broad enough data model to enable these features.
Kimono Is Standards Agnostic
Every application in education has a preferred integration method, and with so many different standards, sharing data between apps can be frustrating. Kimono’s platform is standards-agnostic, so customers can utilize a variety of integration methods in one seamless solution.
