K201 Computing Essentials e-text and SimNet Account

You have PAID for the Computing Essentials 2014 text for Fall 2014 is a e-text on your Bursar bill.  the e-text is available through your Canvas login.  Once you login with your IUPUI credentials at http://canvas.iu.edu you can click the left frame Courseload Engage link to open the e-text.  The Notes page in the top right will show you all the Instructor added highlights and notes.

Please check your iupui e-mail (the one you see on the Canvas roster) for your SimNet username/password.  Goto a browser (SimNet runs best on Chrome), check your System (by clicking the System Test link toward the bottom right of the page), and then login to see your SimNet Lessons.  You will also be taking SimNet Exams in this product.  If you cannot get logged in or have any problems with your account, please ask your instructor first, or ask Mrs. Nemeth  (mnemeth@iupui.edu)

SAM Projects Overview

When you do the SAM Projects homeworks, you will goto http://sam.cengage.com then login to your SAM account. To see the assignments click on the Activity List button at the top (there are 10 Excel cases, and 5 Access cases).  If you want to make the Activity List page your DEFAULT, click the checkbox in the top right corner.

Before the class due (see daily schedule for your section) you need to finish and submit the assigned case. When you click on the assignment link .. you will click the Start button to get to the Instruction file, the start file, and the submission area. You can open this link as many times as you wish (the submission link is the only area limited to 5 attempts).

1. Click and open the instruction file (some students prefer to have a printed hard copy to work from)

2. Download a copy of the start file in step 2 by clicking on the link, and choosing Save As (it is wise to save it to the K201\Excel 2013\Excel SAM Projects folder on your USB drive - so it's easy to find when you are ready to submit). Do NOT simply open... or it will be a temp file and your work will NOT be saved!!

3. Follow all the instructions in the step 1 instruction document, save your changes to the downloaded start file from step 2, and work until you believe all steps are correct. Then Save the changes... and return to SAM Projects, step 3 for that case... Browse for your saved work, and the Submit it for grading.

4. Visit the Reports tab at the top to see how you did. You can open the Reports & select the Files icon to get specific feedback on each step (red x means you did not earn those points... and you can go back to your Excel file, make corrections to that step(s), save the changes and re-submit to SAM Projects again... up to 5 times per case ... or e-mail your instructor to reset some attempts if you need more tries).  You do not need to start over to re-submit.

Your instructor will run a report at the beginning of the class the case is due, and that is the score that will be entered into the Oncourse gradebook (each Excel case is worth 10 points).

Remember the K201 Department paid tutors are available to help in the MAC lab... (see the Blog or Canvas Announcement for details of days/times).

Please let your instructor or Mrs. Nemeth (mnemeth@iupui.edu ) know if you have account setup questions.
