What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

I like how I can pace all of my assignments, and my work. I don’t have to rush to finish, I can pace myself.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life?

The section about nutrition and dieting.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness?

It has helped by informing me how my meal should look, and the amount of nutrition I need every day.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals?

She has helped me by always replying whenever I have a question. She also sends me progress reports, so I can know where I am on my pacing.

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial?

I signed up for this course because I don’t have enough room on my schedule next year to take health. It has been beneficial by informing how to live a more healthy lifestyle.

Please share any other comments you have about cFitness Academy or your Carone Learning course.

cFitness has allowed me to work through health at a pace that fits my schedule. I am being more challenged and learning some great self studying skills because of online health.

Here’s what Barrett’s teacher had to say about him: 

“Barrett is very thoughtful in his responses, he seems to take everything to heart and cares about what he’s learning.”

In Barrett’s Health and Personal Wellness class, there is a section on the grieving process. Barrett was asked how he would help a friend who was grieving. His response shows how caring and accepting he is of others.     

“I would tell them I would be able to talk whenever they wanted to. When they would want to talk, I would be a good listener, and avoid asking a lot of probing questions. I would avoid making suggestions about how something else will make up for the loss. I would be patient, and not force them to talk to me. I would share fond memories. I would respect their process of grieving. Finally, I would write a note saying how sorry I am for them.”

Just as all of our students are unique, we think Barrett is pretty great and we’re proud to have him in class! Thanks, Barrett!

Meet Reese B.! Carone Learning Student of the Week

He gained tips about how to study and prepare for college, he learned about different personalities as well as how to cope. He was very impressed with the lessons and layout of the course and would recommend our courses to anyone searching for an online health class.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

For me, the pace and the way everything was instructed was what I enjoyed the most. The lessons were in depth, but also not complicated or difficult to understand. There was an assignment everyday, and the assignments that were given were not too drawn out; because of this, students were not overwhelmed with having to partake in an online study along with their regular schoolwork. Overall, the course was very well instructed and I enjoyed my assignments more that my regular school work. I would recommend it to anyone searching for an online health class.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life?

I enjoyed learned about coping as well as about my personality in the course. Early on, students were taught about personalities and the different ways people have studied them, which was extremely interesting. Also, our final chapter involved transitioning into college and preparing students to make the change. Considering I am about to go to college in the next few months, it was very helpful to have a small course on this topic and give me news ideas about the way I study and am currently preparing for college.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness?

This course helped me try and work harder to get into shape as well as change my dieting plans. Along with this, I decided to see a professional for the issues I am facing rather than trying to handle them alone.

Leah Swedberg was my instructor for this class, and she was really helpful in reminded me of when I might have fallen behind or been doing exceptionally well during my course.

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial?

Throughout my High school education, I lacked a health class. Because of this, I was required to take one online to graduate. Taking a course online allows me to focus more on my regular school work, relax for a while, then return to work so I can graduate.

 

Here’s what Reese’s teacher had to say about him: 

“Reese is a fantastic writer who is very conscientious about the quality of his work. He is very open and honest about himself, his past, his experiences and his hopes for the future. He demonstrates great maturity. He has goals and fantastic expectations of himself for the future.”

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life?

My Carone course has taught me lots of important information about food groups, vitamins, minerals, exercise and more.  With the knowledge I have gained, I feel like I can create more nutritious meals and maximize the benefits of my food.

Why Online PE?

High school students these days are often turning to online lWhy Online PE?earning to help them get the credit they need for graduation. Online math, science, and language arts are now considered mainstream, but what about PE? Is there a need for online PE? Why are students turning to an online physical education solution?

Three Reasons Why Students Take Online PE

1. Need for a flexible schedule.
One of the most common reasons students take an online course is the need for a flexible schedule. Oftentimes students want to take additional elective courses during the school day—foreign language, band, choir, drama, wood shop—there’s too many good options! Taking online PE or health classes frees up a period so students can take an additional class of their choice.

Additionally, students want the flexibility to take the course how, when, and where they want. Online learning provides that anytime, anywhere flexibility. We often work with students who have limited schedules because they are training for the Olympics, traveling concert pianists, or focusing early on a career. However, this need for flexibility is also seen as a major factor for almost every student we have—whether they are a premiere athlete or a struggling teen. Online learning provides the freedom for students to work on classes at their own pace and however they see fit.

2. Don’t want to exercise at school.
There’s a variety of reasons a student may not want to attend gym class at school. For one thing, the locker room scene can be an uncomfortable situation. Plus, having to change your clothes, shower, and redo your make up or hair in a matter of minutes is less than ideal. Getting hot and sweaty in the middle of the school day is not generally something to look forward to. So many students opt to keep their clothes on during school and take an online PE class where they can choose to exercise at a time that is more convenient to them.

3. Setting the stage for life long fitness.
Although there are certainly some great in-school physical education programs out there, more often than not, they focus on playing group sports and learning the rules of the game. Yes, these are great skills to have, but how well do they set a student up for life long fitness? What are the life management and personal fitness skills a student needs to have to help them be healthy and fit for the rest of their lives? Because of the personal nature of online learning, a virtual environment is actually an ideal setting for learning about personal health and fitness. Students learn principles about health and fitness and practice applying those principles to their own lives and workouts.

Although online learning may not be for everyone, there’s a variety of reasons an online PE course is the perfect fit for many students. Carone Learning is the premiere provider of online PE and health courses. Learn more today!
