New collaboration launches between Pearson and
Helios Digital Learning

Chicago, October 19, 2015 - Helios Digital Learning has joined forces with Pearson to make Helios e-Cases available to Pearson's accounting textbook users. The Pearson Helios Bundles offer instructors a curated collection of video-enhanced, first person stories that showcase real world applications of accounting principles and bring to life ethical dilemmas students may face when they enter their accounting careers. The bundles are paired with selected Pearson textbooks and include instructions on how to integrate the e-cases into an existing course syllabus.

"We are excited to collaborate with Pearson to provide instructors with an innovative and engaging way to bring the real world into the course. Helios e-Cases get Millennials thinking about how what they are learning now connects to the world they are preparing to enter. The e-cases spark spirited discussions about what it means to behave ethically while also improving ethical decision making frameworks," said Kelly Richmond Pope, Ph.D., CPA, Chief Content Officer of Helios Digital Learning and an associate professor in the School of Accountancy and Management Information Systems at DePaul University. "They provide an easy way for accounting programs and instructors to incorporate ethics into their curriculum."

Pearson's VP, Editorial Director of Business and Economics, Donna Battista, said, "According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of accountants is expected to grow faster through 2018 than for all the occupations the bureau tracks. Through our strategic collaboration with Helios, we are increasing access to high quality, relevant digital course content that is designed to increase student engagement and improve academic and career outcomes in the field of accounting."

Chicago Tribune Kelly Pope featured in the Chicago Tribune's Remarkable Woman column.

Most people don't start their day combing the newspaper for headlines about white-collar felons. But for Kelly Richmond Pope, it's just part of the job as a forensic accountant, and one she shares with students at DePaul University, where she is an associate professor in the School of Accountancy and Management Information Systems.

Pope describes forensic accounting as "a combination of accounting, auditing, psychology, criminology and a dose of being nosy." She was an assistant professor of forensic accounting at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro for four years before moving to Chicago to work for KPMG, an international company that provides audit, tax and advisory services.

In addition to her teaching at DePaul, where she has been since 2006, she is an independent consultant for companies trying to identify, prevent and understand why people engage in white-collar crimes. She also is the co-founder of Loop Learning Solutions, a company that creates innovative education media products that focus on fraud and ethics.
