How do I install a module from github?

I want to install tuxedo-wmi which is module from GitHub which will enable me to control my keyboard backlight. From what I have read elsewhere I found out that I should git clone it first. After that I should navigate to the directory with makefile and type make in the terminal. After I get the module_name.ko I should modprobe module_name to install. However I need to know if that is all it take to install the module? What if I want to uninstall it, how will I be able to accomplish that?

Thank you
