Learn how to use your keyboard in a fun and entertaining way for absolutely free. Rapid Typing Tutor is designed to teach adults and kids to use their computer keyboard more efficiently than ever. Learning to type is fun with the typing game included with Rapid Typing Tutor, while its extensive training statistics and customized lessons are rarely seen in the much more expensive products.
Full courses for Beginner, Advanced and Expert typists
The beginner course helps to learn the position of keys on the keyboard. After completing this course, you will know which finger to use to hit each key without looking at the keyboard. The course also covers upper-case letters, special symbols, and the numeric pad.
The advanced course helps to improve your typing speed by memorizing frequently used syllables and words.
The expert course helps you to perfect the skills acquired by typing an actual text.
To help you learn how to place your fingers on the keyboard, Typing Tutor displays a virtual keyboard with zone highlights. In this way, you'll always know which hand belongs to which zone.

Choose Your Keyboard
Typing Tutor supports almost all keyboard layouts, included QWERTY, Dvorak, Dvorak for left or right hand, BEPO, Colemak, QWERTZ, AZERTY, ABNT2 and many others layouts.
RapidTyping supports one, two and tree block keyboads. The numeric pad is also covered.
To further simplify your typing lessons, Typing Tutor displays two moving hands over the keyboard. The hands show which finger you have to use to press the current key.
You can evaluate your own performance or that of your kids or students at any time by simply looking at charts. Rapid Typing Tutor tracks your progress, and allows you to view your results at any time.
Your statistics are represented as tables and charts, allowing you to view your progress and motivating you to take yet another lesson.
The statistics reflect your typing speed and accuracy, complete with a summary at the end of each lesson.
You can also create a course of your own. RapidTyping offers a built-in course editor that lets you insert txt or rtf text segments of any size.
The editor can split a long text into lessons of specific length.
The editor shows the number of words and symbols in a lesson and the ratio between letters and the TAB and ENTER special keys. The editor filters out symbols that are missing on the existing keyboard from the imported text (such as special Word symbols or foreign-language symbols).
Symbols covered by the lesson are highlighted on the virtual keyboard.

This site is a nice way for kids starting out to get interested in typing. most of the games are enjoyable. I would say, add more appealing games on to the site. Add more colorful characters and story to games such as the typing game clockwords act 1 did. I would definitely be more interested in this site for keyboarding class if you did. I hope you appreciate the feed-back! :)
