I am using Enterprise Miner for the first time via SAS OnDemand for my undergraduate class. Among the topics to cover will be Decision Trees, Regression Modeling, Clustering and Association Models. I know the course uses the Charitable Giving Data, Census data and Bank Data, all in the AAEM folder. I would like to give my student different datasets to use than the ones in the course. For someone who is more familiar with the SAS data sets than I am, are there other datasets I can assign that are already loaded under the MetaData Repository that I can assign to my students rather than uploading my own data sets?

The AAEM reference is to a FOLDER, not to a single dataset.
When I look on the SAS OnDemand server, I do see that there are some libraries that are already defined on the server. For example, there is an AAEM library and an AAEMSPEL library. I believe these are the libraries that correspond to previous versions of our beginning Enterprise Miner training class (Applied Analytics using SAS Enterprise Miner). These libraries have been on the SAS OnDemand for Academics server and the older SAS OnDemand for Professionals server (now retired) since we first offered the cloud server offering to instructors and students.
So, if you use the following LIBNAME statements and PROC CONTENTS steps, you should be able to see the data files that are available on the OnDemand server. They are on the SASApp server in the /tutorials/data/studio location on the server (not in your /home location).
Here's the SAS code that does a PROC CONTENTS for each of these libraries:
libname aaem '/tutorials/data/studio/aaem';
proc contents data=aaem._all_ nods;
title '1 aaem library in aaem folder';
libname aaemspel '/tutorials/data/studio/aaem_spel';
proc contents data=aaemspel._all_ nods;
title '2 library in aaem_spel folder';
Here are the results running on the SODA server. I do not have EM to test with, so I used SAS Studio to issue my LIBNAME and show you that the AAEM folder is not empty.
