MONTREAL, July 5 2016 / CNW Telbec / - Druide informatique announces the deployment of an improved version of Typing Pal online, its web application for learning typing. The new version is easier to access, thanks in particular to Google Sign-In and personalized URLs, and provides new ways to help students achieve greater success.

The user can now connect more quickly and easily to Typing Pal online. On the one hand, he can log in using his Google account, the same one he uses for Google Mail and other services. On the other hand, administrators can now create custom URLs for their schools, such as, which is easier to remember and distribute to a group of students. Finally, the registration and login pages have been greatly simplified.

The content of Typing Pal online has been considerably expanded. Over 200 new texts and exercises have been added. Timed tests lasting one, two or three minutes allow performance to be measured from another perspective. Several measures are also intended to encourage student success. Stylish, colorful badges reward the successes of the students, who will want to strive to collect all 54 different badges. When an activity is successful without any errors, it is underlined by pretty golden stars. When the student passes the final test, they receive a personalized certificate that they can print. Finally, the advisers, these characters who accompany the student in his learning, have been visually refreshed and give new advice and encouragement.

The teacher can now give better rhythm to learning by temporarily restricting access to certain activities without, however, masking them. In addition, a new tab gives him one-click access to the statistics of all his groups, an option that was previously reserved for administrators.

Tap'Touche online subscribers can now benefit from these new features and several others, recently deployed worldwide. Anyone wishing to improve their keyboard skills can subscribe to Typing Pal online via
