Good Afternoon everyone! I come with need for some help today. I have found myself with the opportunity to assist a very nice student in their CIS 101
course this semester. The student is disabled and I'm working as a scribe. The class is basically Intro to Microsoft Office 2010 and covers the basic
suite with the exception of Access (Word, Power Point, Excel and Outlook).
Now, when I took this a couple semesters ago? It was taught direct from the book and to the Office program. Nothing fancy and nothing different. This
year, and as it figures, just in time to help someone else learn the underlying material? Someone else figured it was time for something new! (God
help me from new ideas, for the sake of something new to do)
Anyway... The software they are introducing for this is SAM2010
. I know as much about it
as you'll see on the opening page. The bad thing is....the faculty is the same at the moment.
Normally, who'd care? I'm in a class to learn it and that's part of "it". Except...this class isn't about learning, but helping someone else
learn ..so it seems I'm at a distinct disadvantage if I don't know more about the s/w than the student.
If anyone has used or worked with this software, please let me know? Specifically, how does this change the handling and approach for learning MS
Office at an intro level? The student I'm scribing for is 100% blind..(She uses a special computer that is voice drive and voice responsive) so small
changes in procedure to us can be a real big deal there.
