E-Fit offers new electronic scheduling

The Etownian September 5, 2012 0

Elizabethtown College’s E-Fit program is making it easier for students to stay active and healthy by moving its activities schedule online.
Over the summer, the program added its events to the online campus calendar, which is accessible from the College’s homepage. The partnership with the Elizabethtown Fitness Center allows students to challenge their physical abilities in a classroom setting. Classes, which range anywhere from “spinning” and “kickboxing” to the new “Body Blitz,” are now able to be synced to students’ online calendars.
Once on the Campus Calendar page, a student only has to click on the “Add to My Calendar” button at the top of the page after checking the events he or she wishes to attend. This new feature allows students to sync the E-fit events and other campus events to various calendars, such as Yahoo! calendar, Google calendar and Apple iCal. Since students are provided with Microsoft Outlook accounts, they can also sync events to their Microsoft Outlook calendar, which will remind them of events automatically when the email service is open.
The new scheduling system provides students with the description and location of a class when the student clicks “Add to My Calendar.” Since some E-fit classes require an E-fit pass – a card available at the Hub located in the Brossman Commons, which is used for admission to the fitness club – the new calendar system tells students whether a pass is needed for entry or not.
