When students initially registered for SAM via Canvas, they were prompted to create a Cengage account.
Using that same Cengage account, you can access SAM directly at https://login.cengagebrain.com/cb/
After logging in, you can click the “open” button next to your course title.
Students will be taken to SAM calendar page but can also switch to the SAM assignments tab to explore their assignments. Everything else is the same from here.
Profs may need to click the sync button once Canvas comes back online to ensure grades sync from SAM to Canvas.
