But online physical education still requires physical activity. It's just that instead of that activity happening in the school gym, playground, or track, it happens where and when students choose to do it. That may be at school, in the form of extracurricular or intramural sports. It may be at home or in a private class or club. Students then report this activity, sometimes with verification from parents, coaches, or electronic activity trackers. The online component may also include instruction (in physiology, for example), reading assignments and quizzes.
Online PE might appeal to homeschoolers, kids who have jam-packed academic schedules, or serious athletes who want to earn school credit for the time they spend training. Would you consider it for your child?
