Setting up your first typing exercise

The typing exercise builder easily allows creating your personal typing experience within just a few steps.

You can add your own separate words or if you like, you can even add sentences to make the typing more challenging.

Randomizing the question order

You can make the typing less repetitive by randomizing the order of the questions (words) in which they are presented to the typing player.

This feature can be activated via the Settings > Randomize order setting.

Confetti! duration

Since the typing application will mostly be used by younger children learning to type, a bit of extra appreciation and encouragement should feel very welcome. Enter the Confetti!

The Confetti feature is activated after every word that is entered correctly, and lasts a couple of seconds by default. If you feel that is either too short, or too long, you can easily adjust this duration via the Premium > Confetti duration setting.

Feedback: showing the result of the pressed key

To help the player out while typing, there is a very friendly feature which is active by default: showing which key was pressed (if not the correct one). If the correct key is pressed, then the character will turn into the correct color.

The player immediately sees something is off once it does not turn correct and you as the educator (if present at the same location) can interpret what kind of visual recognition mistake the player is making.

If you want to increase the difficulty a bit, you can hide the pressed key in the little bottom right square via the disabling of the Premium > Show pressed key option.

Switching between uppercase and lowercase

The typing practice is diverse and not only has 'learning to type' as the added value, but also supports learning character recognition. For children (and adults) that do not know the alphabet yet, this can be incredibly useful.

Since most alphabetical characters consist of a lowercase and an uppercase version, it is up to you as the educator to determine which characters your puzzle shows via the Premium > Show lowercase characters in field option.

Connect images to words

To make the typing practice even more valuable, you could try out connecting images to words. This way, the player can see the images while typing the characters of the words, helping out with learning what words is related to what image (object in reality).

This can be activated by switching the Premium > Type to 'Words + image'. This will generate image upload fields on the 'Start'-tab which you can use to visualize your typing exercise.

You also have the option of enabling the Premium > Show image only after completion. This way it can be used as more of a nice surprise to the player :-).
