Compass Knowledge Group is announcing that they are presenting with UIC at UCEA National Conference April 2010

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 9, 2010 -- Distance learning services provider Compass Knowledge Group (http://www.compassknowledge.com) is proud to announce that their Senior Higher Education Consultant, Dr. Fredrick Snow, and Dr. Larry Pawola, Clinical Associate Professor and Interim Head, Department of Biomedical and Health Information Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) will co-present "The Economics of Online Learning - The Financial Science Behind the Innovation" at this year's UCEA 95th Annual Conference, April 7-10, 2010, in San Francisco, CA.

The conference is the largest single gathering of higher education professionals who develop, implement, and promote professional and continuing education and online learning in the United States and beyond. The UCEA 95th Annual Conference Leading Innovation in Higher Education provides a unique opportunity to explore the role of continuing education as an innovative engine in higher education.

"Compass Knowledge is proud to be a Gold Sponsor and to give this presentation with our academic partner," said Fred Snow, senior higher education consultant. "The MS in Health Informatics program at the University of Illinois at Chicago is a great example of how traditional universities can successfully launch their programs online to students around the world with tremendous financial success that can benefit the entire University."

"We partnered with Compass in December of 2007, and since then we have grown from 27 students to over 200 at the beginning of the 2010 winter/spring semester. We always knew we had a great graduate degree program, but we didn't quite know how to get it out there and how to attract qualified applicants and convert them into students," said Larry Pawola, clinical associate professor and interim head. "The success of our distance learning program really benefits the University as a whole, and a portion of our revenues support distance education throughout the campus."

The presentation will be given on Friday, April 9, 2010 from 10:45 am - 12:00 pm during the concurrent sessions.
