TEACHING CLOUD BASED SOFTWARE: WHAT TO EXPECT
Intuit makes monthly changes to the QBO software
When Intuit releases a monthly update, it is released to different servers in phases. This means that different students in the same classroom may have different versions of the software.
Updates to the textbook are periodically issued, but updates do not occur simultaneously with the release of the software. Screens and features in the text may differ from the latest software release.
New versions of the print and ebook texts are available each term.
