ONLINE CLASS INFO
IMPORTANT NOTE on CLOSED Classes: All the online classes and many of the on-campus classes close quickly. You should register ASAP if you are interested in any class. If you change your mind, please drop the class immediately so others can enroll. If the class is closed, consider the Wait List procedures; be aware of the rules and the limitations. Otherwise, consider these options: 1) register for another section if available; 2) register for another class; 3) consider registering in a future semester; 4) show up for the first day of an on-campus class and discuss with the instructor; or 5) forget about it and move on. The instructor will not intervene with the wait list procedure.
Please be aware that, once a class reaches maximum enrollment and “closes,” on or after the first day of the semester, even if “available” spaces appear on SURF due to drops, it is within the instructor's complete discretion on whether to add more students at that time. Drops after the first day are normal attrition and are factored in when setting the maximum enrollment. The class has started and important assignments and subject matter have already been covered. Please do not email the instructor. Thank you for your understanding.

Teaching Philosophy/Style and Class Management/Activities
My Teaching Philosophy: My name is Susan Noble and I will be your instructor. In this online course you will master the application of computer accounting principles and procedures. Computer Accounting and QuickBooks knowledge is a “must have” in today’s technological accounting and bookkeeping workforce. I use it exclusively with clients in my business, Noble Intentions Inc, a professional service company since 1995 that helps small business grow and develop through professional accounting, computer, office administration, and tax services. I believe education builds character, integrity, and self confidence.
I want my students to enjoy the class, work hard, do their best and be successful in their endeavors. For extra help I invite you to participate in 4 optional on-ground lab/workshops. I hold them on selected Saturdays in a computer lab at the Oceanside Campus (OCN) and at the San Elijo Campus (SEC). You can bring your laptop. This gives you an opportunity to meet with me and your fellow classmates and work out those issues that you might be having with the program or with a concept. The dates are announced by the first week of class
Instructor Responsibility: No matter how experienced and knowledgeable I am about the subject matter, I am always learning too. My job is to set up a good format for learning the subject and make myself available as needed to assist in the learning process. I expect students to read the syllabus and all other course-related documents and announcements, to know the class rules and deadlines for submissions, to complete the assignments timely, and to take responsibility for compliance. I welcome creative ideas and suggestions from students.
Student Responsibility: Take full responsibility for knowing the requirements, rules, deadlines, activities, and proactively work through all to make the class a success for you. If you miss an assignment, do assignments incorrectly, if your computer crashes, if your internet is down or other life activities take precedence, make intelligent choices and don’t make excuses. Although the course is entirely online, it is not self-paced. You are to complete the assignments for each week generally on your own time schedule within that week. You may read ahead, but you will only be able to respond to the discussion board and submit assignments during the current week. Your first priority is to be sure all assignments are completed on time. Do not fall behind. Each lesson builds on the previous lesson’s concepts and materials. No late assignments (except in emergencies) will be accepted. .Complete and submit your own original work, and act and behave ethically, honestly, and politely throughout the course. Assist each other in learning the subject, discussing topics, and recommending resources or assisting with technical and other areas. Collaboration and using everyone’s skills and knowledge will give the best results. Don’t be afraid to ask and to share, either online or in person. There is an amazing amount of skill and knowledge in the class as a whole that one instructor cannot hope to duplicate. Strive to make yourself a good and available resource for others.
