For more than 25 years, Mavis Beacon has provided dynamic personal instruction, placing students in lessons based on their current skill level and adjusting their path as their typing improves. The enhanced Classroom Manager now allows teachers to easily set goals for a single student or an entire classroom at once, set and change student passwords and more! 

Both speed and accuracy count in competitive racing games played over the school's network. And for motivation to practice, students can type RSS feeds, song lyrics or the entire text of dozens of classic novels from Pride and Prejudice to Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
