How to Use This Course

Keyboarding is an elective course to help your student make their time spent at the keyboard more efficient and productive. This course is taught using audio, video, and written instruction. The intent is for your student’s typing speed and accuracy to increase in order that the typing portion of their daily work, whether it is school work or a job, is an enjoyable, efficient experience. The lessons are best followed in consecutive order as they build on each other throughout the course.

Course Details

Course Introduction

Hello, my eager typers. We will be using the Typing Coach program along with video, audio, and written instructions to learn the basics and evaluate your skills as we proceed.

By the end of the course, you should be able to type with very few mistakes while not looking at the keyboard or monitor at all. If you find that you are peeking or typing many errors, then you should repeat the lessons.

Remember to go through everything in order, proceeding at your own pace as long as you do not move on until you have mastered EVERYTHING up to that point first. Spend time each week practicing the new material. If you don’t, you will fall behind.

Are you ready? Are you set? Do not look at that keyboard or monitor. Now, finish well, typer, finish well!
