There's a lot you can learn online these days - and students in North Carolina can now take another class at home.
FOX News Radio's Dave Anthony reports:
Gym class can sound a lot like this: Kids bouncing basketballs, running around... But in this digital age, who needs a gym?
North Carolina's Virtual Public School will, this Fall, offer high school phys ed classes online.
A teacher will give a video demonstration of some sort of physical activity or sport, then tell students to record themselves doing it:
("Dodgeball) "If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball."
...No it won't be like "Dodgeball".
("Rocky") "I want you to try to chase this little chicken."
..Or like "Rocky"...
("Rocky) "What do I got to chase a chicken for, it's embarrassing, you know?"
Students can use the online gym to catch up on credits or if they are home-bound. It'll be tested in two North Carolina counties first.
