Are you curious about what our new product offerings will look like? See it here first, with an early look at the new user experience in SAM.
Our content player is at the heart of our SAM product, training students on application tasks in a simulated environment. These trainings consist of task-based questions with unlimited attempts for each task. They include four modes to provide scaffolding, and students can complete any modes they choose, in any order:
Keeping student and instructor needs in mind, we’ve implemented a new content player design to make your experience easier. The previous design (shown directly below) opened into the Intro mode, which gives a basic overview of the task at hand.
The new design (below) opens into Observe mode, skipping the Intro mode and diving right into the task demonstration. The “Observe,” “Practice,” and “Apply” options are now located across the top of the content player to maximize screen space. If students want to access the information previously found in “Intro” mode, they can click on the “Guide” button in the very top right of the screen. This allows the user to access to contextual information and alternate click paths.
We have also placed the “Submit” button more prominently at the top right of the screen to deter students from exiting the player without submitting their assignment. We anticipate that the assignment submission process will be much smoother as a result!
