TypeTastic Ad-free Edition for Schools is here

Our mission is to bring TypeTastic available for everyone. That’s why TypeTastic.com is completely free with COPPA compliant ads. Kids can just go to the site and start practicing right away!

However, we also know that many of you teachers would prefer to go ad-free and to serve the needs of our TypeTastic community better, we are now happy to announce our brand new Ad-free Edition for Schools. The Ad-free Edition has all the 150+ levels available at TypeTastic.com, just without ads, and more games are already on the way.

Ready for the most exciting part? Teachers can now sign up to use the Ad-free Edition for free! Totally, completely free, there’s no catch.

Coming up: A full featured School Edition

This Ad-free Edition is just the first step on our journey to eventually provide a full featured School Edition with all the bells and whistles that the teachers are looking for. During the next 12 months, a set of major upgrades will take place as we will be rolling out a bunch of exciting, advanced features like logging in, customization, tracking, reporting, and a lot of new study materials.

The opportunities to develop our School Edition are endless! That’s why we invite you, teachers, to participate in this exciting developing process. Give us feedback, let us know the features you’d like to see in it, and we’ll listen. We’ll set your students for success and provide them with life-long typing skills together. We’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas about all this, so let us know what you’d like to see in TypeTastic School Edition. Send us feedback by commenting this blog post, connect with us on Twitter or Facebook, or reach us at hello@typetastic.com.

  1. I am so excited about using this website with my students. It would help if you would read the instructions for the non-readers. Also, need some instructions under the Cupcake bugs. Not sure about moving the letters. It is not clear about moving the red panda to get to the key. Also, need instructions in Letter Truck. The website is very engaging. I feel students are really going to enjoy the site.

    1. Is there a way for students to play under their name or number so they only play where they left off at? Or is there a way to clear off the games that have already been played on the ipad? We share ipads.

  2. Is there a way to set up individual student accounts for a school? That way student progress is saved and students can continue where they left off? Thanks!

    1. During the next 12 months, a set of major upgrades will take place as we will be rolling out a bunch of exciting, advanced features like logging in, customization, tracking, reporting, and a lot of new study materials. So we’ll be offering these features later next year. If these features you mentioned are important for you, then I’m happy to inform you that we also offer a broader, subscription-based Typing Quest K-12 Keyboarding course that includes all TypeTastic! Games, full keyboarding courses, dashboard, reporting, SSO, etc. TypingQuest can be found at http://www.typingquest.com. If you’re interested, we’re offering a free three-month trial for schools (six months for districts) in the USA and Canada. You can start the free trial by signing up here: http://www.typingquest.com/signup.html 🙂

    2. Individual student accounts and directions that are read to students would definitely make this much more classroom friendly. The kids love the game but it does not record their progress so they often are repeating what they have already completed.

      1. Hi Joyce! Student login and result saving are both coming later this year. 🙂 I can’t promise that the directions will be read to students but I will definitely forward this suggestion to our developers.

  3. I am also interested in having my Kinders being able to pick up where they left off. A sign in where they can pick their name and type in a self made password/icon would be great! To also help with letter recognition, perhaps it could say the letter name / sound when they click it/type it. Reading it aloud (directions/story line) for the little’s would be great too. I can’t wait to start using this!

    1. Hi Steph! We’ll definitely introduce login and other helpful features. All suggestions are welcome! TypeTastic games are developed together with the teachers and you of all people know which features are needed. 🙂

  4. I just signed up for the free version, but am concerned about the cost next year. I can’t find it anywhere, and I want consistency from this year to next. I’d like to know what the cost will be, so I can determine if I should even introduce it to my students now.

    1. Hi Elizabeth! I understand your concernt. Unfortunately we don’t have the prices ready as of yet but rest assured that we will publish the prices early enough to give everyone a chance to decide how to proceed.

    1. Hi Lisa,

      At the moment TypeTastic doesn’t have any login page or progress monitoring, but we are in the process of developing both of them. The TypeTastic games are also available in our K-12 keyboarding product, Typing Quest which has the login feature. However, the first TypeTastic games do not currently save any data, but if you have students who would be benefitting from TypeTastic games, Keyboarding kickstart and Typing Quest junior courses, then I’d recommend trying Typing Quest as well. You can read more + sign up for a free 3-month trial at https://welcome.typingquest.com/typetastic

      Yours,

  5. I am signed up for the ad-free edition, but when I put a link to the site for my students, they are unable to move past the first level of anything. Is this how it is supposed to be? Or should I be directing them to another link?

  6. I just wanted to say that your site is AWESOME!! I would LOVE to be able to have my students log-in and have their progress saved! If that would be ready for next fall’s school year, it would totally make my day!
