Educator and student success stories

I was introduced to QuickBooks by my professors at Hillsborough Community College. As the founder of Forgot or Knot, QuickBooks has helped me gain the discipline and form the habits I needed to manage my customers and company financials. It gave me the foundation and the confidence to scale the business.

I am beyond grateful to have had the wonderful opportunity of working with Intuit Quickbooks through The University of Texas at Dallas. Upon graduation, receiving my Quickbooks Certification opened up an innumerable amount of career opportunities and has solidified my skills within my profession of accounting.

The [QuickBooks] educator portal is easily the best supporting educational technology tool that I have experienced. Setting up a class of students with QuickBooks licenses is all self service and can be done in minutes. I do not know how I would have kept QuickBooks as part of my curriculum for virtual students without the educator portal.

As a teacher, I am extremely passionate and enthusiastic when it comes to my students learning the [QuickBooks Online] platform as well as the accounting that takes place behind the scenes. I believe that in doing so, I am setting my students up for success in the workplace and/or in their own businesses.

QuickBooks Online is one of my favorite courses to teach because it gives students tangible skills at the end of the semester (actually around the middle of the semester) they can immediately implement to be successful employees, or even entrepreneurs.

I've been using this simulation [of QuickBooks] for nearly 10 years, and it's fun to watch students have 'aha' moments as they learn to apply theoretical concepts in a real-world setting...I believe the use of QuickBooks in the classroom has helped students gain a deeper understanding of the theoretical concepts they learn in the classroom and the impact these concepts have in real-world situations.
