How to teach keyboarding: TypingClub’s Leaderboard

Although Typing Club only hangs on to student typing progress for thirty days, the ad’s are less distracting. (Many of the ad’s seem to be geared to parents. The students don’t seem to notice these.) I’m using the Typing Club management now as a trial. It has a leaderboard that many students seem to love. It lists the top students and their keyboarding stat’s. (Like the old-school video games that listed the top scorers, TypingClub does this with the top 10, 15, or whole class.) The students are motivated by it, to the point where they’re happy to work on their drills so that they can bump others off the list. I think it has great potential.
