History

TypingWeb.com was founded in 2000 as a free web application aimed at teaching individuals to learn to type from the ground up. In 2002, TypingWeb became a pay per license web application, no longer offering free accounts. In 2005, TypingWeb started offering packages for schools and corporations to teach students and employees to type in an easy to manage group admin environment. In October 2007, TypingWeb went completely free to individual users[4], following the increasing trend of free online applications.
