Online course, but there will be an optional one time in-person meeting offered Feb. 17, 2012 from 11am-12pm in D.L. Ligon Coliseum Rm 131.
Course Description: This online conditioning class is designed to provide information and motivation for improving your overall fitness. The purpose of this course is to provide the student with a manner of fulfilling the requirements of a physical education course outside of the classroom. If you have not already adopted a physically active lifestyle, it is suggested that you enroll in a class that meets regularly on campus.
It is possible that everyone will earn an ‘A’ in this class. It is not difficult to do, but it does have to be earned. If you don’t read the assigned material you will more than likely have difficulty with the quiz and test questions. If you don’t submit your work on time your grade will suffer. Rule of thumb: don’t wait until the last minute; that is when your worst computer problems will happen. The excuses, “my computer froze, the network connection died” etc. will not be accepted. You will be given ample time to complete the assignments.
When you look at the Calendar it may seem that there is a lot of work to do in the first few weeks. The assignments are neither difficult nor lengthy, but they are necessary measures for a successful program.
You are expected to
Complete all assignments and participate in discussions.
