December 2020 - Archiving data, Syncing, Program Updates, and More!
As you and school prepare for students after the holidays there are a few things that could make your work easier:
If you are not already using a syncing option to create your class lists (e.g. Classlink, Google Classroom, Clever Classroom, Canvas, OneRoster, Blackboard) you can prepare now so that in January you will be able to have class lists created in a snap! Read all about these syncing options at https://support.keyboardingonline.com/categories/sync-options/
We have a lot go over here, and we hope your new semester is off to a great start! We know we surprised many of you with our new site. So here is an overview of new features to look for: - NEW Website - NEW Keyboarding for Kids - NEW Error Checker - NEW Games Still to come in 2020…New Keyboard Mastery, Keyboard Short Course
September 2018 - More 3rd Party Integrations and Future GUI Update
Clever was the most recent integration for syncing student data that we have completed. We are working on some big changes that will go live during the next 2-6 months:
More 3rd party integrations to sync with your Student Information Systems (SIS). Some of these solutions are quite cost effective (free to schools and application providers are charged minimal fees). We feel one sync integration in particular will see wide adoption.
We are currently working on system design changes to link students and teachers to specific classes, profiles, etc. When this is done, students will be able to login with their email and go straight to work. Teachers will only see their own classes, profiles, etc.
The K-6 and 7-12+ student programs are getting a fresh new design. Menu's and navigation are getting a new look. Elementary program will be even more child friendly. We will have both versions side by side for quite awhile to ease the transition and get feedback (you will be able to open either the old or new student programs).
We know you have a lot of choices (but not better choices) for keyboarding software, so we appreciate you using Keyboarding Online. We love to hear from our customers; your feedback and ideas help us create an awesome product
July 2018 - Clever Secure Sync
-Clever integrates with your district Student Information System (SIS). You can share your district and school keyboarding classes and students with Keyboarding Online. Our system will automatically create, update, and delete classes and students according to the data being shared. This means you do not have to create any students or classes; it is all handled by your district SIS. When a student is added to a class through the SIS, he/she will automatically show in the Keyboarding Online class. Less time setting up or maintaining class rosters, more time spent giving instruction! -If you are going to be using Clever Secure Sync, it is a good idea to begin using it at the beginning of a semester (because classes and students will be created based on the data your SIS shares with Clever).
April 2018 - Tests
A test is basically a custom lesson you can create with:
- It's own grading standards (errors, blackout, minimum WPM requirement, etc.) - A test profile applies only to the test!
- Number of Retakes allowed, password protected access
- Date open/closed for testing availability
