What do tokens give me access to on SAM Studio?

All tokens provided will give you access to the following features:

  • Two easy-to-use coding platforms: SAM Space (flow-based) and SAM Blockly (block-based)
  • Ability to save projects in Google Drive
  • Ability to save projects in the SAM Cloud

Existing customers will be given free access to our SAM Studio 'School Basic' plan, where they will have access to SAM Space and SAM Blockly. For additional 'pro' features, customers have the opportunity to upgrade to a Teacher Pro Plan plan or School Pro Plan

Interested users will be granted a temporary or trial membership but will ultimately need to purchase a subscription plan to have continual access to extended features and benefits. 

If you do not register for tokens, there will still be a free platform to explore called ‘SAM Studio Lite.’  This version has limited blocks and behaviors available within SAM Blockly. We will later extend this to include a 'Lite' version of SAM Space. 

The different plans and features are listed below:

Note: As of October 2021 you now have the option to access SAM Studio via SSO log-in instead of activating a token. Tokens are still available to use currently, but in the future they will be removed and replaced by SSO. To learn more about the new sign-on system, click here
