In this course you will learn the basics of touch-typing and sentence formatting.  In order to do this you will learn and practice typing skills on a free downloadable program named TypeFaster.  As you progress you will practice speed and accuracy.  First while looking at the keyboard and then, later, without looking at the keyboard.  You will also learn some basic sentence formatting such as capitalization, proper use of case, and punctuation.

I have observed that emailing has made many people extremely lazy, or unconcerned, about proper usage of case, capitalization, and other elements of basic sentence structure.  When you add to that the atrocious proficiency level in English and grammar for High School graduates and even college graduates in the USA today, then a basic course such as this one becomes an absolute necessity.  That is the reason for this course and why it is suggested for all students.  It will offer the student the basics for typing and sentence formatting to offset the lack of that training in our schools today in the USA and to train the students in the basics who are from other countries who's proficiency is not, understandably, the best because English is not their native language.

This is not, by any means, an English or grammar course.  It is simply a primer course in basic Typing and Sentence Formatting.
