Beginning keyboarding techniques for students who wish to use keyboarding
skills for inputting information on computers. This course is taught on
computers using appropriate software. Emphasis on the development of speed
and accuracy by use of touch keyboarding methods, development of touch
skills on the 10-key pad, understanding of basic vocabulary and concepts
used in keyboarding operations for inputting and retrieving information, and
composition at the keyboard. For students with physical disabilities that
may impair proficiency, emphasis will be on quality of output instead of
speed, and on the use of alternative input devices.
