Review:
This game is a pretty good online typing tutor. Sequential lessons follow the Orton Gillingham method of typing instruction. The interface is clean and focused. Instant feedback allows students to self correct. Data charts and statistics graph student progress through the lessons. If you pay for a classroom subscription, scores are recorded and can be monitored on a teacher dashboard. It allows for students to use their Google login which simplifies things. The game would benefit from the ability to "earn" arcade style typing games - it can be dry for some students. On the other hand, the clean interface is very welcome. You can customize lessons as well. Unfortunately, there is no current way to set typing for a one handed typist.
