If you use Connect GetActive, your students can spend more time being physically active in your course. Connect GetActive provides an e-book of basic fitness concepts, content to match your specific activity (whether it’s yoga, basketball, aerobics, etc), as well as assessments, videos, and study materials. Students complete their readings and assessments outside of class, so they can spend more time participating in physical activities inside your class. All of the assessments are automatically graded, recorded, and can be integrated fully into Blackboard.
