Oh how I remember the days of the typing lessons in school. Way before anyone had produced the exciting e-learning and online training courses we can all take part in these days. No, back then it was a case of listening to the tutor and then carrying out her instructions with her marching up and down the lines of typists. We did not have the benefit of software – VLE or otherwise. The only soft thing in that room was the cushion we popped on our rock hard chairs to soften the otherwise numbing effect of the hard wood. Those lessons come flooding back to me with joy. Rossini’s William Tell Overture floods to mind and of course, every time I hear that music, I am transported back to those halcyon days. Just the start of it reminds me of a, s, d, f, g, f etc. etc. Ah where would all the wonderful programmers and software folk be without the genius of a well trained keyboard operator. Online courses with typing keypads involved are still the bet way to get accurate and well constructed pieces of work out there for all to learn from!
