Additional Product Information

Features and Benefits

  • SAM 2010 covers the key features of the actual Office 2010 software, allowing students to work in high-fidelity, flash-based simulation exercises for a real-world experience.
  • Easy, web-based deployment means SAM is always accessible to both you and your students.
  • Direct correlation to the skills covered on a chapter-by-chapter basis in your Course Technology textbooks allows you to create a detailed lesson plan. As an alternative, you can also create assignments based on course objectives that are not taken directly from a textbook.
  • Because SAM Training corresponds to textbook exams and study guides, instructors can spend more time teaching and let SAM Training help those who need additional time to grasp concepts.
  • SAM Projects offers live-in-the-application project-based assignments. Student work is automatically graded, providing instant feedback. A unique cheating detection feature identifies students who may have shared files.
