In today's world of computers and technology and with an ever increasing percentage of coursework and assignments having to be presented in typed format, the need to equip students with the 'life skill' of touch typing, has never been more essential.
KAZ typing tutor’s multi-sensory program was designed especially for schools and further education. It was scientifically developed by the same team of experts responsible for producing over 55 RSA/NVQ level, computer and office skills courses.
The team used a unique Accelerated Learning teaching method - the most advanced teaching and learning method in use today. It is a 'total system' for speeding and enhancing the learning process. Based on brain research, it has been proven time and again to increase learning effectiveness.
This new edition is the same as our Further/Higher Education edition but with an additional assessment module incorporating a Multiple Choice Paper and Typing Test.
Incentivise your students to complete our new City & Guilds Assured course, where on successfully completing the 6th and final module, they will receive a digital certificate and badge from a world recognised brand to showcase on their Social Media Profiles, CVs and job application forms.
Equip them with a portable 'life skill’ and an extra tool to help them gain employment.
Each license includes a simple yet comprehensive admin panel. This contains user guides, demonstration videos, lesson plans, the ability to upload individual or multiple student lists in minutes, group students and monitor student progress in real time (speed, accuracy and lessons completed) and monitor student progress in real time (speed, accuracy and lessons completed). It also allows administrators to upload weekly spelling lists or problematic words via their admin panel.
Additionally, full IT support is available.
Should you wish to join a free webinar on how to use the teacher's admin panel / back office, please click this button, enter your details and you will be contacted by one of our team.
Our software is available online via our cloud based server, in SCORM 1.2 compliant form for use in LMS/VLE systems, in Single Sign On (SAML) mode for cloud based LMS, Classlink and RM Unify.
No other typing tutor is deliverable across such a wide range of IT platforms.
“I’m continually receiving thanks from the Open University students who had felt ‘stuck in the molasses’ when working on their computers, and now can concentrate on their work rather than the keyboard."
“It just works, which is great and how all software should be - uncomplicated, simple to install and use, great...”
“The combination of my expertise and ability to monitor progress during the sessions and your excellent software, provide a winner. KAZ was easy to operate and staff can now use it to build their skills in the future.”
“UfI have delivered KAZ through the learndirect network since 2001. In this time, the product has been popular and very well received by learners. KAZ is a good introduction to touch typing and has been delivered by leardirect both as a standalone product and as a superb accompaniment to work processing CBT.
Mobile friendly. All our products comprise both UK and North American options.
All our Education Online licenses now include a choice between the ‘Standard’ and the new 'SEN / Dyslexia edition’.
