More exciting updates are coming to SAM!

We recently shared a look into the new user experience for SAM, but the feedback is that you want more! So, we’re sharing some additional info on what’s to come for SAM 365/2019. Some of this functionality will be available in the 2016 product as well, so don’t be surprised if SAM has a new look and feel for your January courses.

 

In addition to the new content player, we’re adding a new project workflow experience for our students. The look is more streamlined user-friendly, making project downloads and submission easier for your students.

New updates aren’t just limited to the student experience! Instructors will also benefit from a new design of the SAM dashboard. The design is cleaner and easier to navigate, enabling instructors to find the essential course information they need.

 

We’ve also added some new information to the instructor dashboard. You’ll now have the ability to view a list of students who have not yet paid for their courseware, as well as a lab administrator guide. Important messages and updates are shown more prominently on the dashboard so you won’t miss a thing!

Our Cengage Computing Team holds instructors and students at the forefront of everything we do. These changes resulted from extensive research and customer feedback. We’re excited for you to experience the “new and improved” SAM!
