TypingWeb's new Teacher Portal not only provides students with the best typing course available, but also gives teachers the ability to manage, track, and grade their students.
Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) June 9, 2010
FTW Innovations, a cutting-edge web application provider has again raised the bar by releasing TypingWeb's newest free educational resource, TypingWeb's Teacher Portal -- a web based student management and grading portal for teaching touch typing. Built specifically for small schools, community outreach centers, and non profit organizations, TypingWeb's revolutionary new Typing Portal aims to bring a full typing course to all education facilities regardless of budget or size.
"I had been fielding an increasing number of calls from small schools and community out reach centers who wanted to teach typing in class but simply could not afford our paid product, TypingAce" says Travis Alexander, sales and support representative for FTW Innovations. "Schools have been facing extreme budget cuts, and non profits have been struggling to survive due to record low donations. TypingWeb's new Teacher Portal not only provides these organizations' students with the best school typing course available, but also gives teachers the ability to manage, track, and grade their students. It's a big relief being able to offer these smaller organizations an alternative solution."
As more and more applications are moving to web-based solutions, schools have seen a decrease in the cost of running computer/technology labs. Where 10 years ago schools would have to purchase expensive, often buggy software which needed to be installed to every computer in every classroom/computer lab individually, schools can now access many of the same applications using nothing more than their web browsers. Websites such as TypingWeb.com not only mark the end of up front costs of upgrading software, but also reduce ongoing IT costs by handling all upgrades, improvements, and new features seamlessly and behind the scenes.
Regarding the new Teacher Portal, Jack Winston of FTW Innovations stated, "I hope that our move of creating a free Teacher Portal not only helps students world wide to learn to type, but also helps application developers see that the future of software is in free, easily accessible web-based applications. Our new Teacher Portal is only one more step towards our goal of revolutionizing e-learning, and free web based software."
