Typing Adventure - FAQs
What is Typing Adventure?
Typing Adventure is an online educational keyboarding course that is unlike any other online typing course. It was started by a school technology teacher not satisfied with the current typing software. It was tested by students of different grade levels as well as with adults. It is an adventure that takes you through the jungle, sea, and desert looking for lost pieces of an ancient tablet. It includes high scores, many games, typing lessons, practices, and progress reports. In a nutshell, the most exciting and dynamic typing experience around!

What if I only have a dial-up internet connection?
Unfortunately the speed at which the files load would be minutes instead of seconds with a broadband connection. After the files are first loaded the speed does become quicker, but it is not recommended unless you have the patience of Jobe.
Do you have an offline version?
Not at this time. The original intention was to eliminate IT, compatibility problems, be able to seamlessly send information from school to home, and to be able to access it anywhere there was a broadband connection.

Currently the content is geared for 3rd grade on up. Adults even love it to help their typing skills with the games and typing exercises! Look for new content that will target K-2nd graders coming soon.
