Sandy Keeter

I've been a full-time Professor in the Information Technology Department at Seminole State College in Florida since 1994, but I've been a computer "trainer" since the early 1980s. I teach Intro to Computers and various Microsoft Office courses, on-campus and online. We have used SAM in our Office Applications classes since the late '90s and are currently using MindTap Collections for Intro to Computers.


Due to our constantly changing enrollment and student population, we rely on Cengage digital products more than ever in our classes. With the quick grading and consistent feedback, students learn from their mistakes and reinforce what they already know. SAM and MindTap have greatly facilitated my teaching, allowing me more time to help students learn, and both digital tools have definitely improved student completion and retention. Integrating Cengage products into our Canvas LMS has further enhanced our courses and I look forward helping colleagues make that transition as well.
As the Program Manager and Course Coordinator for the Introduction to Computers and Office Applications classes, I create and manage the course masters for SAM, MindTap and Canvas. I’m also responsible for the hiring and training of new professors in these courses.


I earned my BS in Operations Research (Math/Computer Science) from the United States Air Force Academy and my MS in Information Systems Management from the University of Southern California. I’m passionate about increasing women’s participation in computing and have been involved in several grants to modify how we deliver the material and recruit our students. As a Faculty Partner, I love to network, share best practices, and learn from colleagues.
