Recovering and Resuming from a Crash or Lost Connection

If your computer crashes or you lose your connection to SAM while working, you can restart it once conditions return to normal. Log in as you normally do, go to the SAM Assignments page and re-select the assignment. The assignment displays in red. The Content Player begins where you left off and any completed questions and tasks save.
