Further to many requests for a Corporate edition of our renowned typing tutor - we are pleased to lauch our SCORM Compliant Corporate editon.
Our award winning course has been re-designed with new corporate imagery and graphics. NO childish imagery, animations and NO gaming. All we need is your attention for a short time. Using both 'brain balance' and 'muscle memory', our unique accelerated learning teaching method will teach you the 'a-z' keys in just 90 minutes. Our results are proven. Testing prior to lauch on 18000 users in learning schools across the country proved that over 90% of users learned to type the 'a-z' keys in just 90 minutes. After this initial testing, the Open University conducted a review and confirmed our findings, leading to the implemetation of our course to all staff and students. The average 2 finger typist can type at a maximum of 25 wpm - we aim to get you typing at 50wpm using all 8 fingers and 2 thumbs!

Product Tested By Lillian Herridge – Amy & Lucile 8 & 10 Years
Lilian Awarded The KAZ Typing Tutor (Standard Edition) Junior Edition 5/5
With 2 daughters who are always on the computer writing and preparing tasks for school this seemed like the perfect product for them to try. The website is easy to use and navigate and the Junior edition took them both through each step and explained everything clearly. I must admit I was not award of KAZ typing products prior to the review.The set up and process of organising everything online was easy for my daughters. Well they are computer savvy from an early age now. It is all available online and my daughters would just go through each stage. The instructions are very clear and easy enough to follow. You can also opt for sound and this made it easier for the girls to follow. This offers you a getting started section and also you obtain a review of your progress.My daughters did not encounter any problems using this online programme. The whole programme outlines how to begin, the keyboard and how to position your fingers on the keyboard. The programme starts them off with simple excercises and they could take their time at each stage. A really good programme which allows each child to learn at the pace that suits them. I have seen a real difference in their typing skills now which makes it easier and quicker for both my daughters to prepare various essays etc for themselves or school work. It has also increased confidence on the keyboard and no longer just using 2 fingers. Now they have this to work with I know their typing skills will continue to improve.This is good quality, easy for children to use and lets them go at their own pace which is so important. This is certainly really good value and I am surprised this is not in more schools. A great product which is child friendly and easy to follow. Now my daughters are confident using keyboard on our home computers and they will only continue to improve their skills. A great product and I would highly recommend.Excellent value for money, easy to navigate website, easy to learn and results are great. For anyone who want’s to help children learn how to type with confidence this is a good investment. My girls loved it. Lillian Herridge – Amy & Lucile 8 & 10 Years

For serious typists and for those who use the keyboard a lot, this is a must have product, which will monitor and advise breaks and good posture. Please use the program sensibly and avoid skipping the short and long breaks - remember, it is designed to help you. KAZ Guardian Angel is adaptive and has been designed with the typist in mind. So, if you are not typing or typing at less than 15wpm, breaks will not be initiated.
Along with the use of this product, we urge all our users to read our infomation guide and learn about the necessity of good posture and other RSI preventative measures.

“Businesses don't care if school leavers can recite the past kings and queens of England, or the capitals of far-gone places, if they can't type", says Josephine Fairley, who wants touch typing to be on the mandatory national curriculum.
KAZ Typing Tutor proves successful at Mary Hare School – School for children with auditory/oral impairments.
"The Student Research Centre is part of the Open University’s Institute of Educational Technology. The main work of the Centre is, firstly, to evaluate the Open University’s courses and learning materials, and secondly, to carry out research into all aspects of students’ experiences of learning as adult distance learners. Both qualitative and quantitative methodologies are used in these areas.
The aim of the Centre’s work is to improve the quality of the Open University’s teaching materials and teaching system, and to raise awareness of the effects on students of university policy decisions and of different forms of course provision.
The positive results of the surveys lead us to recommend that:
• The KAZ software should be provided for S103 students in future presentations of the course. The benefits in terms of improved keyboard skills for those who were initially less experienced appear to justify the relatively small cost to the University for licensing the software for distribution on one of the course CD-ROMs.
• Consideration should be given to sending the CD-ROM that includes the KAZ software earlier so that students have plenty of time to use it before the workload on the course builds up.
• Other units and course teams consider whether the KAZ software should be sent to students studying other entry-level courses."
