High school students in Columbia can now take gym class from their computers. Columbia Public Schools is allowing high schoolers to take physical education online through a program called Online PE, said Christi Hopper, one of the district’s physical education and health coordinators. With an online physical education class, students check out fitness kits that include a stability ball, a heart rate monitor, a resistance band, jump ropes and dumbbells. Based on a video they watch, students follow an exercise regimen while using the heart rate monitor. They videotape themselves doing stretches, lifts with weights and other aerobic workouts and then post the videos online for their teachers to view and grade.
