Typing Websites

Free Typing Games
This website has seven arcade-like games to help students practice their keyboarding skills. Please note that this website also has many pop-up ads and banners that can be distracting.

Peter's Online Typing Course
These 18 lessons include ergonomics, letters, numbers, and punctuation. Feedback on speed and accuracy is provided. Color cues serve as reminders of correct fingering.

Online Free Touch Typing
This web site provides keyboarding instruction using the languages and keyboard layouts of 15 different countries. The practice bar scrolls and the background color is adjustable.  Another unique feature is the ability to type or paste any text into the practice window, and to have that text become the scrolling practice.  Try this week's vocabulary or spelling words and practice keyboarding and spelling at the same time!

Dance Mat Typing
This highly animated set of lessons with four levels of difficulty includes auditory directions for finger placement at each step of the lesson. Note: This is from the BBC, and the narrator has a Scottish accent.
