Will you be charging for the use of SAM Studio?

We are currently consolidating the user experience in one platform and building out the functionality and resources within SAM Studio. To help provide the best experience for you and your students, these future features will require us to differentiate between different types of users. As we update SAM Studio and add these additional features and resources, we will be creating a variety of subscription plans with varying costs. 

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. 

The different plans and features are listed below: 

For more information on the different subscription plans, click on the following link:

SAM Studio Subscriptions

To gain access to your given subscription plan as an existing customer or register for a trial or temporary membership to SAM Studio as an interested user, you will need to receive a token.  To register for tokens, follow the instructions here: Register for Tokens

Users without a subscription will have access to 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. 

Note: We will have an app version of SAM Studio available for iOS users by the end of April.
