Sense-Lang is a site I just started using this year. Sense-Lang has great resources to allow students to learn Touch Typing Basics and strengthen both their speed and accuracy. I used Typingweb.com last year, and liked the way it worked but I had to enter each of my students one by one (with the free version) cause it had no import feature. Last year we were not on a block schedule so I was able to do that. This year with a block schedule and 300 plus students, I really didn't have the time to enter everyone one by one. Sense-Lang allows you to create classes, then students can login to your class with a class specific code, create their own account, and start typing right away.
|Sense-Lang will let you create your own Custom Lessons|
One of the features that is really nice in Sense-Lang is the option to customize your own lessons. I created all 15 typing lessons for my students, each introducing 2 new letters or characters. Typingweb.com would not let me do that. I can also create custom typing games, lessons, and tests using any words, letters, or phrases that I want. I can even export my class progress and results to my email and open it in Excel. Now you can easily create a graph in excel to show student progress.
Sense-Lang may have some ads on the home page, but once the students open the typing window for practice or quizzes, there are absolutely NO ADS! I have found Sense-Lang to be one of the most full featured, FREE, online browser based typing websites you will find. I am enjoying it and I love that my students can work on lessons in class with me, then practice at home in their spare time.
