Sandy Keeter — Seminole State College

As our enrollment grows, we rely on SAM more than ever. Its quick grading and consistent feedback let students learn from mistakes or reinforce what they know.

I've been a 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 Computer Literacy and Microsoft Office, on-campus and online. We have used SAM in our Office Applications classes since the late '90s and recently started using Emerge with MindTap Reader and CengageNow for Computer Concepts.

As our enrollment grows, we rely on SAM more than ever. Its quick grading and consistent feedback let students learn from mistakes or reinforce what they know. As a SAM Faculty Advisor for several years I was able to share my knowledge and learn from others. SAM, MindTap and CengageNow have given me more time to help students learn, and they have definitely helped improve student retention. We are now piloting Canvas LMS integrated Cengage Learning products in our classes, and I look forward to helping colleagues as they make the transition as well.

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've served on multiple college committees and participated in many focus groups with Cengage Learning.
