A fantastic 10-finger typing adventure that delivers a complete typing course
Typing Tournament Online is an entirely web-based, newly-transformed and massively-enhanced version of the brilliantly engaging and multi-award-winning digital typing tutor. We have taken our highly motivational medieval tournament theme, known and loved for many years by students, teachers, schools, home-schoolers and parents the world over, and rocketed it into the 21st century.
Typing Tournament Online combines fun graphics and an engaging storyline with a proven-effective tutoring methodology that has been refined and perfected through years of classroom testing and research. Our revolutionary new Multiple Progressions Model guides learners through a complete 10 finger typing course, delivered incrementally to build skill mastery through repetition and controlled progression.
Each of the 16 levels either introduces the learner to four new keyboard keys and focuses attention on the keys being learned – with a lesson and demonstration, followed by practice drills, embedded games and a progress test – or strengthens the typing skills and reinforces the muscle memory learned so far. Each keystroke forms part of an intentional learning sequence designed to teach you typing skills that will last a lifetime, and each new set of keys may only be attained by meeting carefully-researched parameters for proving proficiency.
