WHAT IS eFIT?

Holding students accountable for their daily workouts in an online course can be practically impossible. It can also cause a number of issues for you, the instructor – tedious lesson planning, laborious paper logging, and redundant estimate-based grading!

There is a solution – a solution you can try for free for an entire semester.

The solution is called eFit software and with it you’ll be able to track your students’ heart rate, activity minutes, number of steps, fitness assessments, nutrition, and much more.

eFit automatically assigns weekly and semester grades -- which you can directly import into your gradebook (D2L, Blackboard, Canvas, etc).

Students love this system – almost as much as professors do!

I recommend eFit Software, Monica Hernandez Valencia

It created a meaningful activity that allowed them to see their own physiology at work...

I used the eFit Software for a physiology project in my human anatomy and physiology course. I had my students record their activity data and the software generated data that we later used to create statistical measures. eFit Software allowed me to have my physiology students put the physiology they’re learning into practice. It created a meaningful activity that allowed them to see their own physiology at work.

The software added a fun element for the students and made my job a lot easier. The service I received getting my course setup was top notch. I highly recommend you incorporate eFit Software into your courses.

I recommend eFit Software, Lois Heeren

The eFit Software has been a tremendous addition to my activity classes.

The eFit Software program has been a valuable tool for my activity component classes to track my student’s steps or their activity minutes. The eFit dashboard gives the students a quick, up-to-date, and informative snapshot of their daily activity as well as personalized information regarding their BMI, heartrate and their health and fitness summary; all areas that are important to the student’s health and wellness. The registration process, technical support, and the ability to have automated activity grading has been awesome, effortlessly and top notch. The eFit Software has been a tremendous addition to my activity classes.

I recommend eFit Software, Mary Gentry, M.S.

eFit has helped keep them (students) accountable allowing them to see their activity on a regular basis...

Regardless of the student’s workout journey or how little time they may have to exercise, eFit has helped keep them accountable allowing them to see their activity on a regular basis. eFit has allowed students to set personal fitness goals and track their progress towards those goals. Several students already use some type of fitness app, so with this software, I was able to view their activity without having them download and send me a copy of their daily/weekly activity data. There were some hiccups along the way, but the help and support made it easy to navigate and work out any issues. I look forward to trying the software again in the fall, and fully utilizing areas I didn’t use this summer.

Answer: There is a fairly large selection of activity trackers that can be used. Fitbit trackers are strongly recommended as they are the most compatible with this software. They track steps and activity minutes while many trackers only track steps. Here is a list of compatible trackers:
  • Misfit
  • Samsung
  • Fossil Smart watches
  • Xiaomi Mi Band 3
  • VeryFit
  • TicWatch Pro
  • Huawei Band 2 Pro
  • Android Wear - (Moto 360, LG Watch Urbane,LG G Watch R, LG G Watch, Asus Zen Watch, Sony Smart Watch 3)
  • Pebble Time
  • Polar Loop
  • Sony SmartBand 2 SWR12
  • Apple Watch
  • Compatible Apps: Google Fit, Fitbit
Good news! An activity tracker is not required. Fitbit offers a free app called MobileTrack that uses the phone's sensors to track basic activity data including steps, distance, and calories burned. eFit.Software is then able to compile the data collected by MobileTrack.
