touch-typing course
The Skinny Typehelp®, a handy educational tool

Normally when you're typing with a keyboard, you are used to looking at the letters whilst typing ('hunt and peck').
But when you're learning to touch-type, you should only be looking at your screen.

To help you with this, you can order the SKINNY TYPEHELP®. The Skinny Typehelp® is a specially designed keyboard cover for touch-typing courses, that fits like a second skin on your keyboard.

You can take it off when you’re ready and re-use it again and again.


The advantage to practice with the Skinny Typehelp® is that you can focus better on your typing. You’ll also achieve a higher speed compared with uncovered keys. Scientific research has proven this. Therefore, it is a highly recommended learning tool. That’s why we have included it in the TICKEN touch-typing course.

You can buy the Skinny Typehelp® on its own for £16,65 including VAT and with free delivery.
You can pay secured by credit card or PayPal. If you are not satisfied, you can return it within 14 days, and we will issue a full refund.

Learning to keyboard: does the use of keyboard covers make a difference?

Lois Nichols, University of Maryland, USA

Third and fourth grade students (N=84) were randomly assigned by class to either covered or uncovered keyboards. All students received 30 minutes of keyboarding instruction for four weeks. Analysis revealed significant differences in speed but not in accuracy between the two main treatment groups. Information Technology in Childhood Education Annual Annual , 2004.

My own son already started at home with the private course and really enjoys it. As a parent I find the reminder useful: if nothing is done after five days, then an email is sent. That really helps.
