Michael Uenking, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering Technology at Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC), may have the antidote for students bored with traditional lectures. With a $2,925 Professional Development Grant from the Virginia Community College System (VCCS), Uenking is developing the Statics, Strength of Materials, and Dynamics Online Tutorial (STAMINA), an interactive online program for students in three TNCC Mechanical Engineering Technology classes: Statics, Strength of Materials, and Dynamics.

The online supplement is inundated with course content, video, audio, animation and more, and will feature components of Adobe Captivate 3, Flash and other programs.
