The program includes customizable, standards based lessons and tests for instructors; a Spanish language environment; adaptive curriculum that takes personalized learning to a whole new level; and powerful reporting features for teachers and administrators. It’s affordable for any size school or district. And, it’s fun!

“After recently piloting four typing programs, our school chose Typing Agent for our grade 3, 4 & 5 students. It is user-friendly and easy to navigate. It is colorful but not overwhelming. It can be set up to be rigorous but provides support and practice”
–Lynn M., Media specialist/librarian, Old Town Elementary School (Old Town, ME)

“We just completed pilots of multiple keyboarding programs and I have to say that Typing Agent surpassed all our expectations. Their support during the pilots and implementation has consistently been prompt, gracious, and more than helpful. Even when we presented them with challenges unique to our district’s management systems, they met with us and teamed up to find the very best solutions for us. After piloting and researching multiple products we determined that Typing Agent was the one that met all our criteria. Best of all, we only hear positive information from our teachers and students using this program. It’s easy to use, yet has multiple options to ensure teachers can adapt specific elements (amount of time on games for example) to their classes’ needs. Teachers and students love the program and the students are already talking about their progress.”
Linda Foot, Digital Learning Specialist, Poway USD
“We are using Typing Agent with all of our third and fourth graders throughout the district and I’m getting a lot of positive feedback about the program. I just generated report cards based on our grading scale for teachers to share during parent/teacher conferences and am noticing that the students’ WPM and accuracy are considerably higher than in previous years. Typing Agent has been very responsive when I’ve had a few logistics questions. Overall, we’re very pleased with it.”
Sandy Bader, Technology Resource Teacher, Heritage School
“Thank you so much! We absolutely love Typing Agent. Our computer tech at our school asked the district if they would be willing to purchase it. It’s a wonderful program and I saw huge improvements in the kids. They really loved it too. I’m hoping we can get it. Thank you again!”
Tiffany, Santa Ana Unified School District
“My students definitely need to practice their typing skills and Typing Agent is an entertaining way to practice. The students can (and do) access it during computer lab time and on the ChromeBooks in the classroom. I can walk around and reinforce the way the students place their fingers and sit. By the end of last year there was an improvement in the students’ typing skills which made them more willing to complete writing tasks on the computers.”
Debbie Bacher, Sonoma Valley Unified
“The fact that Typing Agent covers grades K-12 is not the only reason it is the star of online typing schools. Some of the exciting features Typing Agent has, besides the usual basics, are typeSMART Intelligent Feedback Technology, lessons on typing code, lessons on Internet safety, a 30-day free trial, and more.”
