Introduction to Typing/Typing Lab



This computer typing class will introduce keyboarding form and allow participants to practice typing with the help of an instructor. Perfect for anyone who wants to improve their typing speed or learn how to type using proper keyboarding form. Exercises will be self-paced to accommodate all typing levels.


NOTE - This class will be geared towards adults. We will be using an internet-based typing instruction program that is very plain and straightforward (no games), but does a great job teaching typing skills in a personalized manner. Teenagers are welcome, but no children, please. The program we will use is keybr.com. Participants will be able to use keybr without creating an account, or if they would like to save their progress, they can create a free account for use on any computer.
