BUS102: Fundamentals of Customer Service
This document tells you exactly what will be expected of you in this course, and what you can expect in the course and from your faculty member. It is very important that you read this document carefully. You might even want to print it for later reference.
ONLINE MOODLE TUTORIAL: If you have not done so already, take some time to watch the two Moodle tutorials. The tutorial will help you to navigate the course site more efficiently and will help you to work smarter instead of harder.
Online Course Tutorial Part 1: Becoming Familiar with ECPI Online Courses
Online Course Tutorial Part 2: Participating in Your Online Course
COURSE TEXTBOOK AND MATERIALS: Review the Course Textbook link in your course to confirm that you have the correct textbook, software or web resources for the course.
ONLINE CAMPUS STUDENTS: If a course utilizes an eBook or other web-based materials, Online students will receive the access codes via their student email account. If you have not received them by the first day of class, contact me ASAP and also contact If a hard copy book is used in the course, you should receive it in the mail prior to the start of the term.
STUDENTS FROM ALL OTHER CAMPUSES: You must see your academic advisor on or before the first day of class to get your textbooks and any required web-based resource access codes from your campus.
In addition to the Course Textbook link, be sure to review the Course Materials and Resources section of your course. Information and instructions for utilizing the web-based resources and accessing any areas of the ECPI network that you may need for your course will be in this section.
ATTENDANCE: I will evaluate your course progress and logged activity three times per week to determine if you are on schedule to satisfactorily complete the course. Please begin your course activities on the first day of the term (i.e. post to the introductory discussion forums, complete the course pretest, etc.), and continue posting to discussions and submitting work as assigned in the course throughout the week. In this way, I will be able to track your progress in the course and determine your attendance. Attendance will be taken three times per week as noted here:
Monday: I will check to see if you have made progress in the course for the time period including Friday afternoon, Saturday, and Sunday and early Monday morning. (Typically, the work completed during this time period should include discussions postings, assignments or labs submitted to drop boxes, quizzes, etc.)
Wednesday: I will check your progress in the course from Monday afternoon through early Wednesday morning.
Friday: I will check to see if you have made progress in the course for the time period including Wednesday afternoon through early Friday morning.
Loss of Internet Connection: If you lose Internet connection during the course, you must make plans to either borrow or rent a computer. Your nearest public library has computers with Internet service for public use. If you live near an ECPI campus, you may use any of the student computers there. Losing your Internet connection or computer system during the course is not grounds to receive an incomplete, to excuse you from your course work, or to withdraw you from the course without penalty.
FACULTY MEMBER CONTACT INFORMATION Faculty Member Name | Mr. Jackson | Phone # | 623 - 326 - 6072 | Hours of Availability | Check the course calendar, classroom announcements and email for virtual office hours times. To chat with me live during office hours, visit the Office Hours link in the course shell. Feel free to email me or send me a Moodle message any time! I am also happy to schedule an appointment to chat with you. | Response Time to Emails | All messages will be answered within 24 hours, with the possible exception of weekends and ECPI holidays. | Response Time for Feedback on Assignments | You can expect that all written work for a unit will be graded within three days after the end of the unit. I enter comments and provide feedback for all your assignments. Discussion boards are graded every Monday after the unit ends. | Type of Feedback to Be Expected | As noted above, I make comments for your assignments. Sometimes I may even attach a file with corrections or notes. I will notify you if I send you a file. Please make sure you read all my comments. This is part of your learning process. Feel free to ask questions regarding your grade and my comments. |
The following chart gives you an overview of the course grade breakdown. Be sure you regularly visit the Grades link in your course to track your progress. In addition, be sure to review the Discussion Forum Participation Policies and Rubric located in the Online Policies and Procedures section of the course site. As you can see, Discussions are heavily weighted. We consider discussions to be the heart of every online course. Discussion Boards | 25% | Review Assignments | 25% | Case Assignments | 32% | Quizzes | 12% | Final Exam | 6% | Total | 100% |
Check your course calendar for unit due dates. Generally, all course work for a unit is due on Sunday evening at 11:59 PM ET. Discussion board postings are due throughout the week, subject to the Discussion Forum Participation Policies and Rubric found in each Moodle course shell.
Deadlines will only be excused if arrangements are made with me in advance and if circumstances are sufficiently serious. It is your responsibility to communicate to me any difficulties you may have meeting deadlines, and it is my final decision whether or not you may make up late work without penalty.
In online classes, Sunday by 11:59 PM (EST) is always the initial due date for weekly assignments. Assignments will be considered late if they are submitted after the weekly deadline for the week that they were assigned. Late assignments in online classes will lose 10 percent each Wednesday, Friday and Sunday past the due date at Midnight Eastern Time. For example, if an assignment was due on a Sunday and the student submits the assignment on the following Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, the highest grade the assignment can receive is a 90. If the assignment is submitted on Thursday or Friday, the highest grade the assignment can receive is an 80. If the assignment is submitted by midnight (EST) the first Sunday following the initial due date, the highest grade the assignment can receive is a 70.
Assignments turned in late due to a documented excused absence will be graded as initially assigned.
This late assignment policy only applies to assignments, activities, essays, quizzes and exams; it does not apply to discussion forums. | Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday | Friday | Saturday | Sunday | Week the work is assigned | Unit start | | | | | | Unit due date | 1st week after due date | -10 | -20 | -30 | 2nd week after due date | -40 | -50 | -60 | 3rd week after due date | -70 | -80 | -90 | 4th week after due date | -100 | NOTE: The final course due date supersedes the above. In other words, no credit should be given for work submitted after the Unit 5 due date. |
LATE DISCUSSION BOARD POSTING POLICY: All discussions will end on Sunday at midnight of that particular unit. Failure to participate in the discussion for the unit, grants you the option to make up some of the work in the following way: You must first read all of the discussion threads posted for the week missed. You should then write a summary of the discussion threads (1-2 pages) and submit it for grading. The summary should conclude with lessons learned from that week's discussion thread. I will grade the summary, and the highest grade you can achieve is a 70%. The make-up work must be completed within one week after the week missed.
Communication is the key to success in an online class! Be sure to communicate frequently to your faculty member and classmates to get the most out of the class.
Logging in to the Course Site: Checking the site frequently will allow you to remain informed about what is going on in the course, and it will encourage the high level of interaction that is expected in online courses.
Latest News: I regularly post announcements in the Latest News area. You are responsible for any information found in these announcements. Be sure to read them! The News Forum link in upper center area of your course page contains all the announcements posted in the class. You can enter a comment or a question about any of the information found in these announcements/news.
Calendar: We have a built in calendar here in the course site to help you manage your time. You are responsible for checking the calendar for all your due dates. I also include reminders for attendance, exams, and any other time sensitive elements of the course.
Moodle Messages and ECPI Email: You should plan to check your messages regularly, if not daily. I will use the message system here in Moodle to contact you as well as your student email account.
Disappearing: Sometimes, online students have a tendency to disappear. Don't do this! First, it's very unprofessional and next, you may not pass the class. If you have an emergency arise, message me before you take off. I will work with you, but you must make contact.
If you encounter any problems with the online learning platform, please make sure that you take advantage of our 24/7 Tech Support. You can contact them by phone at this toll free number: 1.866.896.0154. Write this number down and post it by your computer.

...Date: Current date To: Lead Economist Laura From: Your name Subject: Sample Report 1 for Voter Anna I have completed my research and analysis for Voter Anna’s needs. My findings are provided below. Local officials collect property taxes and fees to fund many different governmental programs. One of the most important is the public school system. Local tax dollars are combined with funds received from the state and the federal government to pay the salaries of teachers, staff, and administrators as well as cover the costs associated with building and maintaining schools. There are also many different services provided by the local government, such as garbage collection, police protection, fire protection, parks, libraries, and road maintenance. The local government also determines regulations, such as whether or not stores can sell alcohol or restaurants can allow smoking. Because these services are all important to residents, it is crucial that local politicians be dedicated, honest, and competent. The state government collects sales taxes and fees to fund programs and support education, transportation, health, and welfare. State universities are funded by a combination of state grants and tuition. State highways and railroads are built and maintained to allow residents to easily travel as well as ensure delivery of goods and services to local markets.

Linux Users, Groups, Files, and Directories called IntOps and that the user Dave has write permissions for that group. If I logged on as Dave and changed the directory to /IntOps, I could create a directory called / by performing the “$ mkdir Network” command. This directory then inherits the group that I belong to, in this case Network. Anyone else in the Network group should be able to access the directory with the same permissions as I have. Another useful command I saw was using the –p option on the mkdir command; that option will create a directory tree under the parent directory that I am in. As an example, suppose I was in my /IntOps/Network directory and wanted to create a nested directory called /class/cis206/notes/commands. Instead of creating each directory individually, I could use the command “$ mkdir –p /class/cis206/notes/commands” and assuming that none of the directories all ready exist this command will create them.

Les Miserables

...of justice. It is also quite romantic especially on the part of the love affair of Marius and Cosette that tickles your bones. However, it is more on being a melodrama, that let your heart cry out specially on the ending part where it is shown how noble Jean was in his lifetime upon his deathbed. This novel has also convincing characterization. The character of Jean Valjean depicts a man who triumphs over evil in him and in others. He dared to expose himself, coined with it is accepting the suffering and sacrifices to prevent the conviction of an innocent man for a crime which he had committed in the past. This crime seems to be very forgivable. Thus, we can categorize it as a justifiable act of theft since it is done as a last recourse. Stealing a loaf of bread to feed a sister and her starving children is not bad at all, considering that life is the highest value that should be given stress. But Jean Valjean accepted his fate and has proved to himself that he has triumphed over his fear and had done justice. At least he had lived his life with love and he had been loved by Cosette, his so-called adopted daughter Cosette is also a very striking character. She too has her share of the cup of sorrow, being a daughter of Fantine who was left to the Thernadiers only to be maltreated. At least she found consolation, because she is well loved by Jean and had been rescued from the Thernadiers. Marius on the other hand, complicates the plot of the story when he thought of Jean as......

...character is on a path to salvation (Hugo, p.66). It is in an expressed opinion that he is suffering from being devoid of human contact for over 19 years. On the other hand, some will see the desire to interact with another as a weakness worthy of living without. Moreover Jean Valjean is forced into emerging from the Galley’s of Toulon as an outcast of society not even wanted among “dogs” (Hugo, p.11). Meanwhile one can only wonder about the mental effects such depravation can cause. For this reason it is expressed that the character in question is disabled, suddenly confused about right and wrong. In addition to the main character, Marius is clouded by ignorance and anger undergoing a powerful transformation. (Hugo, 1961) Not long after finding out the truth about his father Marius blindly runs away from his problems. Equally important is the way Marius was able to re-examine his life due to the emergence of the Jondrette (Thenardier), forgetting briefly about the raging feud between himself and his grandfather. Therefore it is reasonable to say that the suffering of humanity is necessary to grow as a morally correct human begin. After discovering what keeps them venerable, the characters realize that love keeps them on the correct road. For example, when Jean Valjean experiences a higher love (brotherly) through Bishop Bienvenue, the blessing Jean Valjean received molded him into a benevolent being. (Hugo, p. 33) In addition he became capable of realizing that honesty is......

...1 Would you rather have a savings account that paid interest compounded on a monthly basis, or one that compounded interest on an annual basis? Why? Unless you are talking six digits there usually actually isn’t too much of a difference in the end between monthly compounding compared to a year. Looking at this from a savers perspective and a borrowers perspective is two different things. As a saver who like to see my money grow monthly I would definitely be a saver who would vote for monthly compounding. If for some reason there was different interest rates I would want to do the math first to get an idea of what that would mean. If someone is continuously putting money away, saving for something big and not touching it. Usually they want the most out of it possible. The saver would want monthly compounded interest. By the end of 12 months compounded they will be so happy they did not touch it, but they were able to see the fruits of their labor through that year time frame. Usually the savers like to see what they are doing and this make that possible. They are almost getting rewarded each month for putting in more money and making their overall finances grow. The bower on the other hand usually has plans with their money. Every month tit might be different but they rarely just save the money to save it. The borrowers would end up wanting the annually compounded interest that ends up being on an annual basis. The reason why they want that is......

...Det var et kappløp for de europeiske stormaktene å få så mye landområder og kontroll i Afrika som mulig. Storbritannia kom i gang senere enn de andre landene men hadde allerede hatt konflikter med Frankrike i Egypt fra 1700-tallet. I 1869 åpnet Suezkanalen, dette er en kanal som går mellom Rødehavet og Middelhavet, den ble åpnet av en fransk ingeniør. Storbritannia kjøpte mange aksjer i dette selskapet for å ha så mye kontroll som mulig over området, fordi dette gjorde reiseveien mellom London og Bombay kortere og sikrere. Selv om Storbritannia styrte mye i dette selskapet følte de det var mye uro og usikre forhold i Egypt, derfor okkuperte Storbritannia Egypt i 1882 og styrket sin makt i Nord-Afrika. Det var også veldig viktig for Storbritannia at de økte makten sin samtidig som Frankrike mistet mye av makten, slik at Storbritannia kunne gjøre som de ville i dette området.   I 1890-årene ble det en stor konflikt mellom Frankrike og Storbritannia nok en gang, begge landene ville ha kontroll over Sudan. Grunnen til at begge landene ville ha dette var for å ha kontroll tvers over kontinentet, Frankrike fra vest til øst, Storbritannia fra nord til sør. Begge landene hadde planer om å lage en jernbane som gikk tvers over kontinentet for å få lettere transport og handelsvei gjennom koloniene sine, og samtidig var de britiske handelsmennene i Vest-Afrika redde for at franskmennene ikke ville la dem drive handel om franskmennene fikk denne jernbanen fra vest til øst.
