SAM Results in Better Outcomes

How SAM helps learning

Students at the Cengage Learning Computing Conference discuss the products used in their Introduction to Computing course and the impact those products had on their engagement in the course.

“Using SAM helped me tremendously. There were times when I would miss class and I could go to SAM, do some practice tutorials and understand in a shorter time span than in class.”

“SAM has improved my learning because it has hands-on projects that I can practice my skills on.”

“With SAM I can work at my own pace, get immediate feedback, and better prepare for tests.”

“Not only does SAM prevent me from procrastinating, but it also helps me collaborate with classmates and better prepare for tests.”

“SAM grades projects instantly, so it doesn’t matter if students are working at 8 a.m. or 2 a.m. They can receive guided help, see what they did wrong, review as needed, and complete the project at their own pace without having to wait for me to grade the assignment.”

“Compared to other companies’ products, a SAM is easier to learn, easier to use, and easier to maintain... And of course it makes learning Microsoft Office easier, too.”

Cengage provides a range of supplements that are updated in coordination with the main title selection. For more information about these supplements, contact your Learning Consultant.
