Gym online

In Minneapolis and elsewhere, students can take gym class online, reports the New York Times.

The course allows students to meet requirements by exercising how they want, when they want. They are required to work out hard for 30 minutes four times a week and report to their teachers by e-mail. Parents must certify that the students did the workouts.

Not surprisingly, online P.E. is very popular.

About Joanne


  1. I’m actually a big fan of Online Education. Modern communications have made the online choice a legitimate one when it comes to undergraduate education.

    Not sure what to say about online PE, however. It is laughable at first glance, as it would be pretty tough to monitor a student’s progress in fitness. I’m sure some conscientious students will use the class as a guideline for their personal fitness, but life’s distractions will likely make this class a “freebee” for most.
