School and district accounts are free of charge, making Typing.com the only platform to offer full district support at no cost with no limitations on content or administrative features.
“It’s our mission to make sure every student has the opportunity to learn the fundamental success skills of the 21st century,” said Austin Butler, Founder and President of Teaching.com, the creators of Typing.com. “Providing district support through Typing.com advances this mission by making it easier for a greater number of districts, schools and classrooms to get the most out of the program and giving many more students access to keyboarding lessons and curriculum. Most importantly, we are pleased to offer these features―and all features of Typing.com―for free, ensuring equitable access for all schools and students.”
- Administrator Role―New school and district administrator roles are available, in addition to the teacher role. Administrators can send instant invites to add new educators to the school account, assign roles, and view each of the other educators in the school or district.
- Add Multiple Teachers to a Class―This feature, created in response to users’ popular demand, allows for multiple teachers or administrators to manage individual classes. As a result, co-teachers, specialists and other educators can support the same group of students, and track and assess student progress.
- Custom Lesson Creation for Administrators―Typing.com recently released a new custom lesson creation tool for teachers. This supports cross-curricular learning by enabling teachers to generate original content for students to type, integrate with current events or classic literature, or focus on any other content students need to learn. This feature is now also available to administrators, who can create custom lessons and make them available to all teachers in the school.
Typing.com is the free, fun, and effective online typing tutor where learners in K-12 and beyond can develop excellent keyboarding skills. Administrators can get started today by setting up a school or district account at Typing.com
