My initial impression is that your site looks basic yet efficient. It looks like your site is covering all of the info basics but visually there was nothing that just grabbed my attention. I think your logo and your sites name could be larger. I like that you have a video to watch right on the homepage and that it’s not to long judging from the 37 second time but I wonder how much info is really packed in it.

I have now looked at the video and it was almost too short for me. I felt like I wanted to see more. You drew me in with great info and reeled me closer when you got the cartoong/ game info going then it seems to stop abruptly. There seemed to be no wrapping of the video just a complete stop.
Are you encouraged to try the course? If not, why?
Just from looking at the site and reading the info I think the deciding factor would be free trial and the price. After having seen the price and did the free trial I would say yes. If I had a child who was eager to learn then I would sign up.

The begining of the course with just the basic typing was a little boring. I would like to have the site say the words I was supposed to type on the first page then I would say it myself on the second page. just to be more engaging. I liked the game and that I could do it over and over. If I didn’t do so good on the first lesson would I be allowed to take it over?

Are all your questions & doubts about the product clearly addressed on the website? If not, what are you missing?
I have placed my questions throught the various questions asked by you so other than those I would have no questions. The site in and of itself answered all my questions.
I see that your mention Captain Forty in your sites intro but it would be nice to see him. For your site to be educational fun where is the livliness to your site? It looks more like it is tailored towards adults.Â It would be nice to see more info about captain forty. ThatÂ is an area where your really want to play up. I understand that your trying to push the importance of touch typing butÂ yourÂ sites lacksÂ all kids friendly aspects.

Â I really like the info at the bottom of the screen on the homepage, it’s informative but straight to the point. For me I think there is a touch to much space between the three catergories on the left hand side of the page as if your trying to fill space. The font also looks like it’s not the same as if the info under why touch typing is larger. Uniformity is better and consistency will speak volumes over trying to take up space. If that is an issue a cool kid layout would really enhance that space and vibrant colors would really attract kids and parent alike.

After now watching the video and looking at your picture logo I would certainly like to see something a little more snappier.

At the end of each class why is the student only allowed to play one of seven games? Are their new games at the end of each new class? If so, why limit? If not then perhaps just put it at a fixed number. Most kids will want to pick more than one and may feel let down if they understand that playing another cool game can only be done when completing another lesson. If your lessons are just as interactive as the game this may not be a problem for you.

The course, for children, for school pagesÂ are fun, engaging and balanced.

The Get Full Course page is another nice page which lays out all your sites pertant info/ faqs very nicely.

I know that most schools offer a tryping class so maybe you need to engage parents on that aspect. Why should they pay extra for kids to learn to type with the amount of time they spend texting and computing. Why the extraÂ  money.

Again great site and lots of info I would just like to see a little edge of fun and color but still in keeping that your first trying to engage the parents.

More graphical work needed on the main screen.Â  It is basically a white screen with a few colored buttons/icons.Â  There is a lot of space in the “margins”, which I presume will be used for advertising…
Are you encouraged to try the course? If not, why?
Although skilled typing certainly evolves over time, I do not think that I would work for 10 weeks to learn.Â  I would probably get the basics, and then use that in my everyday typing.Â  Not exercises much like practicing the piano.Â  Children, on the other hand, are who you are really trying to reach, so the games are an incentive to keep going.Â  That is a good incentive.

I think it depends on whether or not the schools are teaching the students typing basics.Â

Although adults can use the course as well (skipping the “games”), it appears to be focused on children.Â  If you would like to reach adults as well, create a main link that takes the user either to the “children’s” lessons or “adult” lessons.Â  An adult looking for typing lessons would not come to your site.Â

Just by working through Lesson 1, there was a place after the instructions where a young child would not know to click the Continue button (even though it was lightly blinking)…by the way, the blinking Continue button could be bolder in color so that the flashing was more apparent.

Was the space bar instruction included in the instructions?

There was an exclamation point at the end of Lesson 1.Â  If no instruction was given on how to press Shift and the key for the exclamation point, then the user might not know how to type it.

End of lesson “colors” of which keys were good, which needed work on, and etc. need to be bolder.

Visit https://www.TypeKids.com. What is your initial impression?
As a mom of a 10-year-old boyÂ who prefers the hunt and peck form of typing I LOVE the opportunity for a program that talks to him at his level to understand the keyboard. I spent an entire career typing on typewriters and computers to get to 90 words a minute. He is always amazed at how fast I type and how I know where the keys are located. My first impression of this site provides an inviting opportunity – albeit a bit immature in introducing the pirates theme – but it intrigued both my son and I.
Are you encouraged to try the course? If not, why? Definitely! Computers are the primary source of both test taking and game playing for late elementary, middle school and high school aged children – at least in our state. Knowing where the keys are located helps them respond faster to those questions and gives them confidenceÂ in their answers and in their ability to complete tests in the alotted time. Teachers are more focused onÂ getting kids to finish theÂ test. They are not teaching basic computer and keyboard use skills any more than they are teachingÂ handwriting!Â To not have to hunt for a key and let your fingers find it naturally would be priceless in ourÂ  test-oriented society!
Please try the course by clicking on start free trial. What do you think? The program does a great job of engaging the child to play. Finger placement skill development is simple and easy to follow. I’d skip the part about the chair and saveÂ it for a parent tutorial rather than for a child. You will lose the child’s attention trying to get him/her to figure out how to position their chair. Moving into the typing test, it would help to have background music to remind the child they are actively participating on the site. I missed the space bar and went through the entire two lines before I realized I’d skipped the space bar. It would definitely enhance the child’s experience to hear or see a symbol or “gong” when they strikeÂ  the right key or hit a wrong one. Or some sort of symbol that lets them know they made the same mistake I did when the forget to hit the space bar!!
If not, what are you missing?Â Â
The free demonstration on the website does a good job of introducing the program. But before I plunk downÂ $14.95 I’d want to know more about how my child will progress from one level to the next. Before ordering, let parents know what extra graphics might await them at the next completion level. Having a parents-only page that lets Mom and Dad explore the site and make an assessment of whether or not they think their child will benefit and whether or notÂ they think it is worth their investment. Please share any additional feedback/comments you may have. The game section could use some upgrading. If the target audience is 8+ then you have totally missed the types of graphics that will fully engage them. You don’t need a mega graphics effort but having a more engaging or explosive response to the kids hitting their sharks – or what ever the game is at the next level – can both entertain and teach them more keyboard placement skills. And at the end of the game, isn’t that what you are after? 4. Michael says: What is your initial impression? My initial impression was, as others had, main screen is a bit too plain, perhaps adding a background or one of the characters from the game could give the impression that this experience is meant to be a fun learning experience. The video on the initial page is a great way to attract attention in a more visual and audio way. Are you encouraged to try the course? If not, why? Yes, I was skeptical until I read about the games, I remember when I was learning to type in school, I was not very interested until our teacher had gotten a new software that involved a lobster eating the words that you were trying to type.. the faster you type the further ahead of the lobster you would get, the pay off was not getting eaten by a lobster! This made the typing experience a fun one and we were much more engaged in the experience. Please try the course by clicking on start free trial. What do you think? Unfortunately for me it would not let me past the initial trial screen (finger placement on keyboard) when I continued to the next screen I was unable to type and was forced to close the browser. Are all your questions & doubts about the product clearly addressed on the website? If not, what are you missing?Â I wish that there would be a bit more information on exactly what the parents would be getting out of this experience. Will they have accesss to the lessons to preview what their child will be doing in upcoming lessons so you can prepare your child and help him when he is not using the program. Please share any additional feedback/comments you may have. I think that as a starting site you are doing a great job overall and you will be very successful. As stated before I would add a bit more color to the website to attract the attention of not only the parent but the children as well. 5. jenscraftcreations says: VisitÂ https://www.TypeKids.com. What is your initial impression? This is a great tool for teaching children to type. Â However, the homepage is not very kid friendly. Â If a child or someone who cares for a child is going to get interested in something to help the child learn a new skill it will have to look like it is fun. Â More bright colors and characters would be a start. Â Possibly a link to a fun way to test current typing speed so that there is something to compare to when the course is finished or anywhere along the way. Â Many children are very competitive and even if they are not beating someone else they like to know that they can beat themselves. Are you encouraged to try the course? If not, why? I am always encouraged to try courses like these. Â I already have a pretty good typing speed and good accuracy, but there is also always room for improvement no matter how good you are. Â I would not use this for any of my children at this point, but that is because they are very young and I believe that they should start learning to write before they start learning to type. Â Just because a keyboard will be their primary means of communication as they get older does not mean that they should not still have solid handwriting skills. Please try the course by clicking on start free trial. What do you think? I think that the trial should include more instruction in typing rather than being completely about posture and positioning. Â Any kid who tries the free trial will not end up wanting Â to go through the whole course because they are going to be bored to tears with the trial. Â Try having something a little more fun in the trial too. Are all your questions & doubts about the product clearly addressed on the website? If not, what are you missing? The site is rather self explanatory. Â There are not a lot of questions in general, and those that might come up are clearly answered. Please share any additional feedback/comments you may have. I am very concerned about the lack of fun that is shown on the main page and in the free trial. Â With this combination, there are not going to be any children that are interested in taking these courses, and there are going to be very few parents or caregivers that are interested either because those who live and work with children know that they will only fight about doing things that they do not consider to be fun. 6. Thunderbolt1003Fan says: Visit https://www.TypeKids.com. What is your initial impression? Will, it looks interesting to teach a kid to type. The site layout is great. I like how they have the free trail to let the parent’s kids try it out before buying the course. Are you encouraged to try the course? If not, why? Yes, I would try it, but I don’t have kids and I no reason to try it. But if I did I would for sure give it a try! Please try the course by clicking on start free trial. What do you think? I think the free trial thing is a good idea for parent’s to test whether there kid wants to choose this typing class or not. That way they can have an example of how it works and how fast they have type and so on. Are all your questions & doubts about the product clearly addressed on the website? If not, what are you missing? I see nothing missing or incorrect in this website. I think it’s a great thing for kids to try it out and see if they like it and for kids in school to try to improve there typing skill’s I think this site will be a great example to teach them there typing skills. Please share any additional feedback/comments you may have. I give this site an A++++ this site will teach kids to learn and be able to type better and help parent’s and teacher’s help them with kids. 7. kjadmartin says: What is your initial impression? When first click on the website, it is very simple. There is not a lot of info on the product, just the basics. It is supposed to be geared towards children, but it seems more associated with adults, parents or maybe even teachers, to get children involved. There should be some motivation for the younger ones as well to try it from the website. Are you encouraged to try the course? If not, why? Yes you are encouraged by the fact that it is a “free trial”, but it should also let you know that there is no credit card or sign up needed for the free trial. The thought of signing up and using a credit card would detour most people, and most sites say no credit card needed when that is the case. Please try the course by clicking on start free trial. What do you think? The course was easy to catch on and moved slow enough to get it the first time. The pictures were simple, and the free trial was really short. It could have been a tad bit longer. I like the reward system you get after completing a section by letting you play a game. it will probably give some motivation to move on to the next section. Are all your questions & doubts about the product clearly addressed on the website? If not, what are you missing? No, not really. There should be an easy to access questions and answers page with all the basic info that one might have questions about. I always check that before committing to anything. Please share any additional feedback/comments you may have. the idea is great, but the website just seemed really generic to me. It didn’t seem up to date with todayâ€™s technology. I think it is great to have an online, easy to access website for kids to learn the basic skills of typing in a fun motivating way. 8. Visit https://www.TypeKids.com. What is your initial impression? My first question is: who is your customer: the children or the parents? And from Iâ€™m seeing, the text is written for the parents, but the video is for the kids. And within the website, there is a page for schools. So, you really have three different audiencesâ€”three niches. You may want separate landing pages or sub-sites for each, since each requires a different approach. As it stands now, the information is serviceable, but there is nothing here to engage me. Let me explain more: * Within the site, there is a page speaking to directly to children. It asks questions: â€œWould you like to spend less time doing homework so you have more time for fun things? Would you like to type faster than your friends when chatting?â€ You only have a few seconds to engage a perspective customer, donâ€™t hide these questions where they arenâ€™t going to be seen. Put it on the home page or the landing page for children. For children, the home/landing page probably needs to be more colorful to grab their attention. And you could use the same kind of technique to engage the parent: Why do parents want their children to learn touch typing? Will it improve grades? And why does your program accomplish this better than other programs? Their home/landing page could reflect this. You do have a page for schools. Schools are tough. They donâ€™t like to spend money on new and unproved products. They want proof. They want test studies. They want data. What do you have to provide them in this area? Do you have results? On average how quickly do children learn to touch typing using your method and how does that compare to other methods? On average, how many words per minute do students type at the end of your course versus other courses? Give them statistics. Are you encouraged to try the course? If not, why? Maybe. Why? Because there is nothing here to get me excited about your product. If I came across this page unexpectedly, it might get me thinking about looking into a touch typing course for my child, but not necessarily yours. I would want to compare. Please try the course by clicking on start free trial. What do you think? Iâ€™m thinking back to when I learned to type. I had just graduated from 6th grade and had a book (donâ€™t remember if my parents bought it or I did). The name was something like: 10 Steps To Learning How To Type. I spent the summer learning. I believe it taught one finger at a time, going up and down the keyboard, which initially seems easier, but yours may be. Not quite certain about the terminology for fingers: baby finger, rather than pinky or ring finger. Are these what children are accustomed to these days. Does the game help a child to remember the keys well. Itâ€™s been so long and I type quickly now (about 100 wpm), that itâ€™s hard to know. A friend of mine has a computer game that teaches people how to read and play music (http://www.pianowizard.com). In that case, when they press a key/note, there is a different sound. Obviously, that is true of music and not of typing. And is there enough for a child associate the finger and letter? I presume youâ€™ve done the testing. The one thing I question is the violence. I know that is part of todayâ€™s video games and blowing up sharks? Are all your questions & doubts about the product clearly addressed on the website? If not, what are you missing? No. The biggest questions are: Does it work? And how well does it work in comparison to other products out there? Please share any additional feedback/comments you may have. I pretty much covered everything above, except for one thing. I have an acquaintance who is also developing a program to teaching touch typing, although I donâ€™t believe it is for children. Would you be interested in connecting? 9. MelissaCMck says: What is your initial impression? After visiting https://www.TypeKids.com, my first impression was that this was just like any other typing course that could be found online.Â The pirate theme was original though. I have never seen that theme in any other typing courses. I do believe though, the pirate theme could be carried out more.Â There is too much white space on all the pages.Â The website needs to grab the attention of children, but children can not pay for the subscription.Â You could add a page for parents. Are you encouraged to try the course? If not, why? I am not sure about trying the course because of the month to month payments.Â I would be afraid that I would forget to cancel the payment plan, once I finished the course after the suggested 10 weeks.Â I am also wondering how to cancel the plan because this is not addressed on the site.Â Do I go to the contact page to cancel? How many days in advance does TypeKids need for me to cancel? Please try the course by clicking on start free trial. What do you think? I did try the course.Â It seemed fun, and easy.Â It was understandable.Â The game was a lot of fun, and as I was playing my 8 year old son seem interested in the game.Â He wanted to play the game, but did not want to do the lessons.Â I know it would take more programming but I was thinking some more entertainment on the computer screen during the lessons, Captain Forty could be swimming towards the boat trying to save himself from sharks, if you finished the lesson he would always be safe, but the kids would have a goal. This is just an example of course. Are all your questions & doubts about the product clearly addressed on the website? If not, what are you missing? I do believe there should be a cancellation tab, so that people can just easily cancel their subscription. This way they are not wondering if their contact mail was received or not.Â I also believe there should be a little paragraph about canceling, for example “We are sorry to lose your business. Cancellations can take up to 48 hours to process, so please cancel at least 2 days before you are to be billed again.” Please share any additional feedback/comments you may have. One last idea, would be a little note for children to show their parents if they want to their parents to buy it, so they are not going through their mom’s purse or dad’s wallet trying to find a bank card. 10. swapnil15 says: Visit https://www.TypeKids.com. What is your initial impression? when i first visited this website first impression is awesome website. specially a video is good one and it adds more value. Â Are you encouraged to try the course? If not, why? Of course i do. Please try the course by clicking on start free trial. What do you think? This is actually a good idea that if you let customer try your product before buying, it makes good impression and gives customer clear idea about buying it will be beneficial or not. Are all your questions & doubts about the product clearly addressed on the website? If not, what are you missing? There are actually no more questions about the course but if website provided some more options like FAQ tab then it will be more comfortable. Please share any additional feedback/comments you may have. 1- They could make website more user friendly 2- A separate FAQ section may have added a value. 3- A good use of more color may have spiced up a thing 11. ImpartialObserver says: Visit https://www.TypeKids.com. What is your initial impression? First thought: .com is not an ideal extension for an educational-type website. The landing page is bland and unattractive. The logo is too small; it seems to be hiding and ashamed of itself (if I wanted to personalize it). You seem to have a conflicted message; I can’t tell if this is a product for kids, or for kids and adults. The copy on the page seems to go both ways. The text is bland and unexciting. Hire a competent ghostwriter with experience in sales copy or children’s products Are you encouraged to try the course? If not, why? Are you asking me? (the adult) I can’t see that I’d be interested in what looks like an educational tool designed for children. I say this without having gone further into the site yet. The copy on the page is enough of a turn off to pretty much steer me away from the site and the product. You REALLY need it rewritten. Especially for a site that involves a course on typing. The connection people will make between typing and the quality of the words on your site cannot be underestimated. If you did it on your own, or paid someone like a penny a word, that’s the problem. The dynamic system for adjusting to problem areas sounds appealing. Â Please try the course by clicking on start free trial. What do you think? This is definitely geared toward a younger crowd. The instructions don’t mesh well with an adult mind. I felt like I was being babysat. Of course, the product is for youngsters, it’s just that an adult could have followed the first step with a single sentence of instruction, whereas you gave a much more lengthy explanation. Grown-ups will most likely use this for their kids or seek touch typing training from a more adult and expeditious website. I can see the simplicity and directness of the instructional template appealing to some, and it may be effective for all ages, but it’s marketed for kids as I can tell, and that will show as far as who buys a paid membership. Are all your questions & doubts about the product clearly addressed on the website? If not, what are you missing? Is the student access button the only log-in button, because once again, it clearly excludes adults from product targeting. the payment options seem a bit unclear. Are you actually saying that the product has a monthly subscription rate and if you dont complete the classes in a month, you have to pay another month to do so? That’s horrible. I can get any typing software at the store in complete, without further payments for$10 if that.
Â
I’m unclear as to how easy cancellation is and whether it will take a time investment that could be deceptive when deciding how much time I would need before further charges were applied to my card.

Putting pressure on the consumer to complete a course or pay the price (literally) is poor form. It also means that someone who wants to continue through the course again to strengthen their skills is stuck with shelling out more money. I feel like I’m borrowing something I can buy outright for less money elsewhere. If I got a typing course at the store and put it away, I can still come back to it in a year and use it then. What is it about your product and service that goes beyond that to justify paying extra and not having that convenience. I understand the appeal of a theme that resonates with children, but that’s just it. It’s a kids product, that should be reflected in the presentation, not something that people would expect to shell out extra for it.
The money back guarantee is nice but 24 hours is a really short time to make a decision. It’s too much pressure. If I had maybe 3-5 days, that would be better. People are busy, and one day to decide whether to return the product in addition to the time frame needed to finish the class before being charged again is pressure I dont believe the consumer will resonate with.
Your agreement is governed by the laws of Spain??? Is this a global product? That’s a little odd for US consumers. We have no idea what we’re signing by agreeing to that ToU.
Again, you MUST fix the copy. as a poster above pointed out, there are a slew of grammatical errors that utterly destroy the site’s credibility.

Mentioning Captain Forty without a picture or “bio” really adds no appeal to the pitch. Who is he, what does he look like, how does he help the kids, etc etc. If he’s a big part of the lesson plans, make sure he stands out on the landing page.

Hope this helps.

Visit https://www.TypeKids.com. What is your initial impression?
I think the homepage looks clean and it gets to the point quickly.Â  However, I wonder why the logo and the buttons on top are so small.Â  Having a more prominent logo might make the site more likely to stick in its visitors’ minds while having larger buttons might make navigation easier.Â  The video adequately explains what the course is about and as soon as I watched it I felt motivated to start the free trial.Â  I also liked the line about how most of the writing your child will do will be on a keyboard — this seems to be becoming more true by the day.Â  I grew up with computers at home, but I didn’t use them extensively in school until high school…now middle schoolers are expected to type their papers!
Are you encouraged to try the course? If not, why?
Yes, the video and the information on the homepage was sufficient to make me interested enough to start the free trial.Â  I’m not in the target audience for this product because I don’t have kids, but I would consider using the service to improve my own typing skills.Â  Even as an adult, I still would enjoy the games!Â  What would make me hesitate is the lack of pricing information on the homepage.Â  Another concern I had is related to free trials.Â  Sometimes you have to signup for free trials and can get charged later on if you don’t go through a cancellation process of some kind — you might consider calling the free trial a demo or a test drive so you don’t scare people away. Â  Â

Please try the course by clicking on start free trial. What do you think?
I liked it.Â  The instructions were detailed and easy enough to follow.Â  I felt like the teacher could have been more enthusiastic — I wondered if kids might feel turned off by the serious tone given that they would be expecting cartoon characters and games.Â  The typing tests are just what I would have expected from a site like this and I had no problem taking them.Â  The initial game was simple but fun…I liked the concept of scaring away the sharks by typing the right letter.Â  I thought the graphics were well-done and feel they would please most kids.

When I’m considering buying a service or product, I want to know the price upfront so I can incorporate it into my decision-making.Â  I think the price should be displayed on the homepage.Â  You should click on “Get full product” for more details or when you know you want to buy, not just to learn what the price is.Â  Doing things this way makes it seem like the site is trying to hide the price or the fact that it is a subscription service.Â  It would also be worthwhile to include some information about the company somewhere on the site — I’d never heard of Sunside Solutions before and would want to feel confident that TypeKids is a service offered by a reputable business before buying. Â  Â
I would be more likely to try this service if the subscription cost was $14.95 for a year or if it had a one-time purchase price.Â It won’t take a motivated person too long to complete the course, but charging per month seems to be punishing people who need more time to finish for whatever reason.Â I suspect children may complete the course but want to do it again or go back just to play the games — it doesn’t cost you much to let them do that and keep the parents happy at the same time.Â I can’t imagine many parents paying$14.95 per month just so their kids can keep playing the games.Â  From a business point of view, recurring revenue is always nice to have, but I don’t think it really suits this site.Â  Going to a one-time price would assuage people’s understandable fears about the difficulty of cancelling subscriptions.
