Typequick keyboarding software for schools

Typequick for Students is a fun, interactive typing software for schools that is suitable for children from 6 years old. Students love the rich animation and characterisation in this learn to type software product. They are drawn into "Kewala's Amazing Keyboard Adventure" and forget they are learning how to touch type as they help the loveable cartoon character on his adventure in the Kingdom of Eaz.

Typequick for Students is a comprehensive typing tutor disguised as a fun filled adventure with cute characters including Kewala!

Ten easy and interesting lessons will teach your child to learn to touch type with 10 fingers - an essential skill in education today. Your child can extend and consolidate their keyboarding expertise with five additional courses to increase speed, accuracy, keypad and punctuation typing skills.

Find the Keys The first part of the Adventure where you will master the keys. You will be typing quickly and properly by the time you reach the Kingdom of Eaz. This course teaches correct finger positioning and associated keys of the alpha/numeric keyboard in ten structured lessons. This is the default course and is the recommended starting point.
Royal Challenge This course will build your speed and accuracy. Wise Fella will give you challenges which will take Kewala into the wild to catch the ten finger speed master. This is only for you if you have found the Kingdom of Eaz or you can already type without looking at the keyboard. The lesson parts in Royal Challenge alternate between improving your speed and improving your accuracy. The speed challenges are designed to help you reach your touch typing/keyboarding goal and will not stop you if you make a mistake. The accuracy challenges are designed to improve your accuracy and make you press the correct key to continue with the challenge.
Royal Challenge 2 The course is similar to the Royal Challenge except the text is more formal.
Punctuation Course Teaches the most commonly used punctuation keys.
Keypad Lessons Teaches the number pad for data entry in three easy lessons.
The Planets A series of quite long lessons providing practice in speed and accuracy. The text and images used cover a range of interesting information on the planets and moons in our solar system.
Australian Animals A series of shorter lessons providing accuracy revision. The text and images describe popular and exotic Australian animals.
Metals A series of shorter lessons providing accuracy revision. The text and images are related to five different commonly found metals.
The Senses A series of shorter lessons providing accuracy revision. The text and images describe certain characteristics of the five primary senses of human beings.
Mouse Course An introduction to the computer mouse. The course teaches all the basic functions of the mouse and terminology associated with it.

Each lesson is made up of three parts. Parts A and B teach new letters and combine them with the home keys and previously learnt letters. Part C is a consolidation lesson where all letters learnt so far are combined and presented in sentences and sometimes in longer paragraphs. These exercises are designed to build skill level and confidence.

Settings

Typequick offers several settings to customise your child's learning experience. Features such as target speed, fonts, colours, audio preferences, whether one or two spaces are used after a full stop or period and the type of keyboard being used.

Typequick provides a detailed progress report in graph form showing the speed and accuracy achieved for each letter at the end of each lesson part. You’ll see as in the example below, the speed and accuracy achieved for each key.

Keyboard Lessons

The program alternates between speed practise and accuracy lessons to improve your skills in both areas.

Lessons 7 - 8 teach you how to use the number keys. These are the keys on the top row of the keyboard.

Lessons 9 - 10 focus on building your speed and accuracy.

Concurrent User Licence for LAN or WAN

Typequick's concurrent licensing solutions are designed to offer multiple students access to the program.
