This is a creative work project submitted as a
partial fulfillment of the requirements for a Master of Arts Degree in Education, with an Instructional Technologies Emphasis. It is designed by Angela C. Dowd for her masters program at San Francisco State University, San Francisco, California.


The Noble Enterprise (NE) Business Model was developed by Darwin (Dar) Gillett of Noble Business Solutions and Noble Advisors. Dar is a client that Angela has worked with for several years. His book, Noble Enterprise: The Commonsense Guide for Uplifting People and Profits (Gillett, 2008) gives more detail about NE strategies.


Karen Jeisi, one of the Noble Advisor partners, graceously offered to help while Dar is recovering from an illness. Karen has contributed a great deal to all parts of this course. Her background and excellent understanding of leadership in business have been been invaluable to the creation of this e-Learning course.
