More Keyboarding Resources for your iPad – Typing Web

Typingweb.com   – Learn to Type is another keyboarding resource commented on by that can be used with the iPad and Android tablet.  Use of a standard keyboard is recommended for practicing keyboarding as the standard keyboard configuration is different from iPad keyboard.  Keyboarding instruction is based on use of the standard layout.

Typingweb.com provides progressive keyboarding instruction starting with home row keys and displaying proper fingering when keys are introduced.  This keyboarding instruction is broken down step by step using a standard keyboard instruction with practice sessions to build technique, keyboard layout, speed and accuracy. It also collects data on lessons completed, speed and accuracy of your typing.

Typingweb.com’s Learn to Type instruction’s free version requires signing up for a login membership.  Cost of the full version is  9.99 which removes ads. The program provides many levels of keyboarding instruction to reinforce ten finger typing skills. I understand they are developing a keyboarding app for release soon.

Remember that a standard keyboard is recommended for keyboarding instruction and position your tablet upright for appropriate posture when keying. Here are a few suggested Bluetooth keyboards:

Apple Wireless Keyboard Kit

Logitech Tablet Keyboard for iPad (Keyboard-and-Stand Combo) (920-003241)
