WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – When Navy Reservist David Fraley received orders to go to Kuwait, he wasn’t ready to stop attending class at Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC). With help from Assistant Professor of English Diana Martin, Fraley  interacted in real-time with TNCC students in ENG 262: Creative Writing, a class held at the Historic Triangle campus in Williamsburg. When the class convened at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, it was 3 a.m. on Wednesday in Kuwait.

Fraley is one of the many students at TNCC who employ distance learning tools. The College delivers distance education through several means including podcasting, Blackboard and Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro, a software that allows instructors and students to interact live and facilitate distance classes in real-time. The software permits the use of Microsoft PowerPoint slides, application sharing, as well as live and recorded video, among other things.
