Helios e-Cases get Millennials thinking about how what they are learning now connects to the world they are preparing to enter.
Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) October 20, 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.”
