This course will teach you how to touch type with the Colemak keyboard layout, but not the way you think. Rather than show you what to learn, it will ingrain in you how to learn. You will not get key-by-key instructions — there are plenty of free apps that do that. Instead, you will get the fastest route to learning and improving.
Why touch type? Because you want to think of words and have your hands instantly convert them to text on the screen. Without thinking about the keys, without looking away from the screen -- without any of those distractions. Just instinctive, automatic action. Typing at the speed of thought. Just what you need for taking lecture notes, recording meeting minutes, and writing in flow.
OK, so why Colemak? Because it's the most comfortable keyboard layout, period. Among the primary layouts, Colemak has the least finger travel, which means Colemak requires the least effort.
By the end of this course, you'll have learned the position of the keys in the Colemak layout, and you'll know exactly what to do to keep getting faster and more accurate. Expect to hit 30 WPM within days, with increasing speed and accuracy week over week.

What is the course format?
The course consists of three phases:
In phase one, you'll prepare to switch to the Colemak layout. In phase two, you'll learn the position of the keys. Those are the easy parts.
Phase three is where the magic happens. You'll learn how to practice with purpose, which is the key to your ongoing success. Follow the principles, put in the practice, and you'll quickly improve.
Enough talk. Enrol now, and I'll see you on the inside!
I am passionate about learning new skills and deconstructing them for others. My signature style is stripping a complex topic to its essence, then teaching it in a way that is digestible, memorable, and most importantly, fun.
I believe that mastery is a result of purposeful practice done repeatedly until it is ingrained behaviour. Talent is overrated.
