Can teachers decide if they want to use in app content or their own material?
Yes. It empowers teachers or admin to individualize instruction and allows them to either use the typing exercises provided or easily import their own material from virtually any file format including PDF, DOCX, HTML, or any URL.

Hi there, @maureennicholson!
Yes! You will have the option to load in your own text. I personally love to use weekly spelling words within the Typesy games. Students have never been so excited to practice their spelling!
As a teacher, you will have access to and control over every aspect of your students’ experience from lessons to assignments to assessments. Monitor class and individual student progress, assign customizable tests, and relax as Typesy does the grading for you! Additionally, Typesy adapts to each learner, so no student will ever find themselves with lessons too easy or too difficult; with over 2,500 common-core standards-based lessons, your students can learn to type while engaging in fun, differentiated lessons in science, social studies, ELA, and math.
Typesy is available across most devices and platforms and is designed to work with technologies you may already have in place at your school. Typesy integrates with Google Classroom, Clever, and Classlink; for those without an existing program in place, Typesy allows for CSV imports or manual entry of student data.
