Thank you for your interest in Sandbox
It is the perfect addition to your university and course. Allow us the opportunity to tell you more about how Sandbox helps in the classroom and how you can get started using Sandbox.Up-to-date learning
Digital media is presence across disciplines and professions. Social media and new technology influence political science, communications, marketing, business, journalism and other disciplines. Knowing how to effectively use digital media is also a highly valuable skill in the workforce.
In this era when technology is constantly changing, your students require up-to-date curriculum that textbooks can no longer provide.
Sandbox solves this problem by creating seminars and courses that are continuously updated. In addition to teaching about the latest digital tools, Sandbox also provides seminars on the strategies and concepts surrounding digital media and how digital media can be used in a variety of professional settings. Think of it as a textbook that is always up-to-date.
Sandbox not only provides an online textbook for students, but also offers real-time chat support and an online forum. Students can ask our Sandbox professors questions or start a conversation with their classmates.Exercises and Exams
Sandbox teaches the material and provides quizzes, exams and exercises. Students are tested on the seminars with grades automatically shared with the teacher. Additionally, exercises provide in-class projects and discussions that teachers can use to create their lesson plans.
