Peter’s Online Typing Course
In addition to lessons, this site also offers preliminary articles that explain the principles of effective learning, typing ergonomics, and where your fingers should go on a keyboard. The site is organized and easy to use. You can start at any of the lessons in the left sidebar.
As you type the letters, they will turn gray, unless you make a mistake. Then a robotic male voice will say, “bad." Type the correct letter and keep typing until you reach the end. You will reach a screen. Then you will see a screen like this:
Although I like that the screen shows the completion time, I would have liked to have seen the WPM score, as it would be great when you need it for a resume. I do like that you can choose any lesson that you want, instead of having to go through them sequentially. That helps if you have already mastered basic typing and want to improve on your numbers.
The exercises that I liked the best were at the bottom. They were a combination of letters and numbers, and you had to get all of them right. You can create your own typing exercise if you don’t like the ones they have. It is limited to 600 characters, though.
