Earn credit for playing video gamesd

HOUSTON (AP) - September 8, 2009

It's more than a dream for students at the University of Houston.

Students are now able to earn an hour of credit for playing Wii sports games.

It's the same credit they would get for traditional classes like basketball, soccer or weight lifting.

Instructor Ben Hoffman says his students must log between 20 and 30 minutes per class -- and there's no cheating.

The Nintendo Wii console records just how much time each student spends doing the high tech workout.
