Check out the New EduTyping!
Don’t you love the clean slate that comes with a new school year?
So do we! Which is why we’ve been working hard to get the NEW EduTyping student and teacher portals up and running with plenty of time before classes are back in session. And today we are officially LIVE! To see the new features for yourself, click below for access:
Our team has been working around the clock for the past few months to make some major changes to the EduTyping platform. Read on below to see some of the great new features that have been added to the student portal.
Also, behind the scenes, there have also been a lot of changes made to the platform, which will enable us to release new features much more quickly. We have a lot more great features for both teachers and students in store, so get ready!
Below you’ll find quick descriptions of some of the biggest changes and additions.
Avatars that Level Up + Corresponding Skins
Now, as students choose the skin to personalize the look and feel of their EduTyping lessons, they will now have matching keyboard hands below lessons and avatar characters that represent them.
With each lesson they complete, their avatars will level up and evolve – providing a powerful motivator for students to keep typing.
As EduTyping continues to feel more and more like a game, your students will be eager to log more and more practice time (even without your cheerleading).
Fun, new animated videos have now been added at the start of lessons to help teach students the basics of proper posture at the keyboard, why typing is a such a valuable skill, and more…
New Achievements to Unlock
Just like in a game, students will unlock achievements for typing speed, accuracy, characters typed and more throughout their lessons. The more they type the more achievements they will unlock!
Dictation and Auditory Software
We’re excited to launch new dictation and auditory software that will allow visually impaired students to use EduTyping as well.
With these technology accommodations available, we hope that even more students will be able to benefit from our touch typing curriculum.
New Lesson Screens
You’ll now find three different screens for lessons designed to reinforce repetition and to visually remind students of where keys are located on the keyboard when learning new keys.
Google Single Sign-on
Given the often limited amount of time that students have to practice typing, every second matters.
We’re making some changes to signing on to EduTyping to streamline the process and maximize the amount of practice time students can spend at the keyboard.
