The Microsoft Teams for Education Integration is Here!

Microsoft Teams for Education is one of the great ways to engage students with virtual face-to-face connections and activities or set up a remote lunch or recess to keep classrooms connected and having fun.

Welcome Microsoft Teams for Education

You asked. We delivered!

Typing.com now integrates with Microsoft Teams for Education! This incredible new feature makes sign-on, class management, and data syncing a breeze. 

For those of you with a Microsoft school or education account, you now have access to all Microsoft suite has to offer. You can now:

  • Sync any classes from Microsoft Education over to Typing.com
  • Transfer student data to make setting up simple

When signing in with your Microsoft account be sure you are logging in with your school or educational email— not your personal!

For new teachers to Typing.com, once signed up you will have the option to sync all your Microsoft Education classes, making set-up even more simple than before. For those already using our platform you can now choose to link your school account and add any additional classes you may have!

Set Daily Student Typing Goals Today!

Are you always looking for ways to motivate your class to master their learning? Setting small goals is an easy way to measure progress and celebrate wins along the way. We’re proud to announce that you can now set timed typing goals for your students!

Getting Started with Daily Goals

The new Daily Student Goals feature gives you the ability to set daily time goals for students—at the class or individual student level. This is a great way to keep students motivated and working toward typing mastery, and for you to know exactly what they’re doing

If you’re a teacher, you can adjust your students’ goals in a new tab under the Class Settings tab. You may choose goals that last from 5 to 60 minutes daily. Your students will see their updated daily goal timer among their typing stats each time they login on their dashboards. 

Typing.com celebrates achieving their goals and gives them the option to add 5 more minutes if they’d like.

For Students Not in a Class

Students who are not in a class will be able to update their daily goal when they land on the dashboard. Here learners have the option to choose between “No Goal” or goals of 5-minute increments up to 60 minutes. But don’t worry, skipping goals doesn’t mean one can’t be set later on! 

We’re building Typing.com to make it as easy and effective as possible to learn the critical skill of keyboarding. It’s flexible and fun! We think you’ll love setting student goals and enjoy the results.

Try it for yourself right now by logging in here.
