I also got a chance to use this program which I am happy about because I wanted to be able to check it out completely. I really enjoyed that when you set up the main account for the family, the "Manager" account, it already had an area for me to practice the lessons too. This way I could see exactly what the kids were seeing and working on for myself. I also wanted to practice my typing skills as I know I have lost some of them since my days of consistently teaching typing before I had kids. I was able to work through a few of the lessons and I got high enough scores that I could play the games too. I must say that the games are pretty fun and I liked the combination of reading, typing, and thinking in the games. I did fairly well on the assessments and my typing skills weren't as bad as I thought they were, they just need some polishing.
As a former keyboarding teacher, I was extremely
impressed with this program and all it has to offer. It is very
thorough while being very user friendly. I appreciated how this
program would not let you move on until you had passed the skill
check which meant that you mastered the lesson. It might take my kids a few tries, but I would rather have them completely the skill checks the right way. I also liked being able to set goals for each of my kids and then adjust them as they reached the goals. I also like that based on the assessments the program would give them goals too. We all liked how the lessons featured both audio and visual learning to reinforce the concepts. We also liked that we could turn the audio off if we didn't want it on. We like that it is a good mix of fun and educational so it doesn't get boring for my kids. My favorite part of this program from a teacher's perspective are the reports it gives for each student. I can quickly access them and see what my kids have been working on and their achievements. It is a great feature of the program. I appreciate that we can use one program for everyone in our family and we plan to continue using this program to continue building our typing skills.
