Good web-based application for keyboarding practice. Paid app that offers a curriculum for students to follow and ability for teachers and parents to track progress over time. Customizable benchmarks. I recommend using this tool for individual keyboarding practice. We support students keyboarding practice by creating Qwertytown accounts for students and supporting practice at home.
