Typing Courses

When I was in high school, I took a summer school course in typing and learned to "touch-type." Today, the term seems to be keyboarding and the courses seem mostly automated. I'm on a mission to create or find the best keyboarding or typing course.

Google suggests

Good typing - 27 guided lessons to learn step-by-step from the beginning. Free. Teaches in many languages. Text-based, tracks what you do.

PetersOnlineTypingCourse - same as good typing. Modest interactivity. Text instructions - another free site, geared for schools. $99 to get rid of banners.

Elye's ideas: - from sunburst. Entire range of products, some packaged, some online. Single user is priced at a whopping $79. Lab at $179. School & network $799.

Keybo - CD-based course:

UltraKey from Bytes of learning.
Typing Games by read write type - combined interdisciplinary course
