Students are already familiar with the layout of the program because the design is very similar to popular games.

You will be able to track your students' progress, assign tests, and customize your courses through the instructor portal.
With TypingClub, students will increase their typing speed and accuracy in a variety of different exercises. While speed is not the primary objective of keyboarding, it is a desired side effect. Once students are able to type with all ten fingers without needing to look down at the keyboard, their overall productivity when using a computer will improve dramatically. When typing with two fingers, the visual and frontal cortices of the brain are forced to focus on where individual keys are located. Touch typing removes this burden, enabling students to work on things like sentence structure and grammar while they type. To help students in the classroom, the best thing you can do is to make sure students are not looking at the keyboard
