Why Typing Training?

The use of a computer in primary- secondary and High school, Universities and in society, in general, is increasing. Students who have had typing training at a young age are better prepared for considerable future computer use.

Also, students who can find the keys automatically, do not have to focus on typing. They can focus on the content of the assignment. Research by H. van der Meijden connected to the Radboud University in Nijmegen, The Netherlands showed, that students who learned the skill of touch-typing with ten fingers at a young age are better prepared for secondary school. A correct posture while typing is also part of the training. It might prevent RSI problems.

There are many advantages to learning how to touch-type blind through SmartTyping.

After the training course, the students can fully concentrate on what they want to type instead of thinking about the typing itself.

  1. Adopting a relaxed work posture prevents RSI.
  2. While typing, the fine motor skills are used, so the course improves this!
  3. The training is fun and informal and only takes 4½ hours.
  4. There are three tests in which progression will be measured.
  5. The results of the exercises and tests will be sent by email.
  6. The exercise system is online.
  7. Additional exercise material is available.

SmartTyping at What Age?

The SmartTyping training course is available from the age of 11 who know the alphabet well and do not yet touch-type blind.

What do other people say about this training course?

Karla Pit – Atlant Care Group

A special kind of typing course. The letters and symbols are being visualized and stored in your memory in a fun way. The link between your image-forming and the movements of your fingers should be mastered in the follow-up online practice sessions.

Pieter Kingma – Orthopaedic Surgery, Kennemer Hospital

The typing course was a positive experience for me. Fun learning method, working with mnemonics. It works well, the positions of the keys on the keyboard are memorized quickly. Before, I never thought I’d be able to learn how to touch type at my age (47). I can recommend this to every 2-finger typist. Practicing now.

Ilse Koelemij – Aios Skin Diseases, Deventer Hospital

I chose this course because I have to work in the EPD frequently and I make many typos. The course layout is great; you learn to visualize the keyboard which makes you find the letters very fast. You learn a whole new way of typing. After one week, typing is improved greatly. Every day you receive an e-mail telling you that an exercise is waiting for you. It takes about 15 minutes per day. I can definitely recommend the course.

Dr K.W. (Wim) Florijn – Internal Medicine, Ruwaard van Putten Hospital

It’s a relief to know where all the keys are on the keyboard without endlessly repeating. Good that it was carried out on location that quickly!

Erik Tiggelaar – Consultant, Haga Hospital

Surprising!! In particular reading with images and stories suits me perfectly. Nice evening! Laughing, relaxing and learning. I really learned a lot in a visual way. The SmartTyping typing course: Learning to type fast in a special way. Surprisingly fast results. Very good use of personal learning styles.
