ed2go is pleased to announce a major update to an instructor-led online course designed to help students improve their keyboarding speed and accuracy. This course is popular with students seeking careers in health care, office management, and related fields.
This course has been fully revised to allow students to use the latest keyboarding software, Keyboarding Pro 5. The title and price for this course will remain the same.
Instructor: Kathy Van Pelt
Description: Students will learn how to touch-type or improve their existing typing skills using Keyboarding Pro 5. By the end of the course, they will know how to touch-type the alphabetic, numeric, and symbol keys; create, save, and edit word processing documents; and successfully take a timed writing test during a job interview.

I love being involved in education because I am always learning something new and exciting. I have been teaching and helping students for over 25 years with computer applications and keyboarding classes. Before computers, I helped students learn how to use dedicated word processors. It was a long time ago!
Currently, I work at MiraCosta College, a community college in California, where I teach computer applications for the Computer Applications Department and keyboarding classes for the Business Office Technology Department. I teach one- and two-day computer courses through Community Services, and work as an Instructional Assistant II for the Academic Information Services Department. I’ve been enjoying my jobs at MiraCosta for over 20 years! Prior to MiraCosta, I worked at Eldorado Business College teaching word processing and business courses.
And, for about 15 years I’ve been teaching online courses (PowerPoint 2010, 2007, & 2003, and Keyboarding) through Education to Go, a division of Cengage Learning. I find teaching and learning online an awarding experience.
I enjoy reading, learning, traveling, and spending time with my family.
