Online teaching tools will become more like video games through a program Thomas Nelson Community College’s Michael Uenking is working on. A supplement for regular classroom or online students, it’s intended to provide extra help in a fun and technologically savvy way.

Uenking, an associate professor of mechanical engineering technology, received a $2,925 grant from the Virginia Community College System to develop the program. He just started on it this month, learning Adobe Captivate software in preparation for testing the program on 10 students this semester.
