- This is the best option I've found for a good, free beginning typing course, complete with color-coated illustrations showing children where to place their fingers on the keyboard. It does require Adobe Flash Player (a free download).
- This is another option for a free, web-based typing course. It has 27 guided lessons to learn step-by-step from the beginning. There are no required downloads, just a required free registration. You can sample the first lesson without registering though. You can also check your typing speed on this site.
- After trying both of the two links above (since they're free), I decided it was worth it to buy a more kid-friendly typing course so I ordered Typing Instructor on Amazon. My six-year-old likes it.
