WILL CAMPUS offers a socially relevant curriculum that can help empower teenagers with the knowledge to make healthier real-life decisions. Designed by WILL Interactive, provider of web-based educational products, these serious video game programs address issues such as racism, drug abuse, cyberbulling and "sexting."

Teachers can use these video games in a classroom setting, or have students participate online from home. The campus also allows teachers to track the progress of an assignment, view detailed statistics and compare students' pre and post assessment results. With each assignment, students drive their own virtual experiences as they experiment with decisions, consequences and peer interactions.
