A barrier in many courses is getting students to see personal relevance in the course material. The session will describe how customized video-based modules and engaging application assignments have been integrated through Blackboard to create a more personalized learning environment for students enrolled in an online fitness education course (KIN 210 - Concepts of Fitness and Wellness).

Concepts-based fitness education courses have typically relied on a lecture/lab format but the presentation will describe the advantages of online fitness education modules for covering the cognitive and behavioral skills students need later in life. Fitness education courses have objectives that tend to be focused on personal behavior change (as opposed to content knowledge or professional skills) but the strategies used in the class have applications to promote engagement in other blended or online courses.
