It can either be a verb or an adjective, depending upon how it's used.
Verb: The teacher was enlightening the students about problems of slavery.
Adjective: The priest gave an enlightening sermon last Sunday.

Also it can be a gerund....verb used as a noun. Enlightening the students is the task of a good school.
