Welcome back everyone!
We are going to start the year off learning to type with keyboarding class.
Class will meet in the classroom where we will then head to the computer lab. So, you will need to come prepared to spend the remainder of the class time in the lab.
We will be using the Typing.com website. You can click on the link to take you to the page where you will enter your login information. You will receive your login information on the first day of class.
The website will allow me to track your progress and performance, which will ultimately result in your grade for the class.
The website will be accessible from other computers connected to the internet, such as Lion's Den. For this reason, your work could also be accessed during study hall, for instance, if permitted.
If you would miss the class for any reason, you will be responsible for making up the lessons completed during the missed class periods.
The course will grade you not only on speed (wpm=words per minute), but also on accuracy. So, it is important to type slowly and with accuracy, than with speed, until you become proficient.
