Keyboarding Coach: Typing in the Modern Day
In the old days, a secretary was the only person in the office expected to have touch type ability. Nowadays, when so much of our personal and work lives happen via computer, keyboarding ability is an absolute must in most any profession. Whether you are a C-suite executive or a factory foreman entering the day’s arrivals and departures of freight, there is no getting around it: you must be able to type and do it well. You are also required to be at least moderately speedy: in today’s fast-paced work environments, the old hunt-and-peck method no longer cuts it.
Keyboarding Coach: Typing in the Modern Day is a valuable asset for those with some typing experience and those just learning the basics. Through the use of both textbook-based instruction and the included online course, students can both learn and practice keyboarding via a series of fun and engaging exercises that play out like games.
Designed to increase familiarity with the keyboard and key placement in order to increase precision and typing speed, the lessons introduce students to the aspects of the standard Qwerty keyboard, as well as the importance of ergonomics and hand placement, commonly used software, and web browsers.
All of the content includes easy-to-understand instructions and detailed illustrations that help the user learn and remember the basic steps of each operation.
Keyboarding Coach comes with a specially designed back cover that allows the book to stand vertically for easy access.
