Details


UltraKey Online honours the UltraKey tradition of providing effective and motivating instruction to students, empowering teachers to meet all their students' needs, and providing powerful administration tools for districts and enterprises.

 

In its instruction, UltraKey Online utilizes all the media capabilities available for learning, including video, and voice-supported instruction. The illustration shows video of a real UltraKey graduate flying over the keys as voice actor Tina Meazell speaks about key points to observe.

Touch-typing has to be taught, which is why UltraKey Online uses the crystal clear animated instruction to convey every important technique.

 

During thirty years as a leading keyboarding instruction solution, UltraKey has never stopped evolving!

UltraKey Online offers exciting new features including directed language arts activities managed by the teacher, and the exciting new Game Zone! Once the basics are in place, the Game Zone provides typing fun to develop reading and writing skills and improve typing fluency.

 

The management interface is a completely new, simplified, but astronomically power administration system. Districts can create schools, create classes, enroll students and transfer students at about 10,000 user records per hour. Unlimited administration, school, and class manager accounts are easily created with a clear and simple interface.

 

Teachers have a wide range of tools for reviewing student progress, adjusting class-wide options, determining individual student settings, and setting goals across the board or on an individual basis.

 

To teach touch-typing, instructors need software that is effective with students, genuinely motivates them, lets teachers direct the instruction, reports results, and -- above all -- works reliably! UltraKey Online delivers all this and more.

Engineered for all browsers on all computers and mobile devices including Chromebooks and iPads.

UltraKey Online is plug-in free, and conforms to all HTML5 and WWW3 standards.

Localized for North America. UK and Australia-New Zealand localizations to be announced.

Cost-effective subscription licensing available.

    We are happy to discuss your specific situation. Please contact us.

  • Is UltraKey suitable for mature users?

    UltraKey is effective for all ages because it has no childish elements, adapts to whatever ability the user has, and proceeds at the user's personal pace.

    UltraKey begins by providing a goal assessment that determines how proficiently the user types now. UltraKey sets a goal for the user that can be adjusted for more or less difficulty.

    The UltraKey instruction is designed to meet the individual challenge level by instructing the user in correct technique and systematically building the user's performance. Even when the person has good typing skills to begin with, UltraKey is effective at helping the user reach new levels of proficiency.

    UltraKey is never condescending and it supports every mature user from low-functioning to high.

    For all the above reasons, UltraKey is a popular choice for adult instruction in colleges, correction services, libraries, community centers and other facilities where younger and older adults are served.

  • How can UltraKey meet the whole district's needs?

    UltaKey has a powerful online record management system that lets you centralize your data management while providing instructional control of UltraKey to the schools, teachers and students. The UltraKey system generates school-wide, class-wide and individual reports so auditors, administrators, teachers and parents are fully informed about the curriculum presented and the performance achieved.

    UltraKey offers an indefinite range of settings so UltraKey can appeal to a wide range of user ages and needs. The adaptive and user-paced nature of the program mean that UltraKey can provide core instruction for any student in the system from grade two through twelve.

    Numerous options allow teachers to easily adapt UltraKey to their own teaching styles and the ages of their students.

    UltraKey includes many supports and adaptations for special needs students too -- all assignable at the individual level.

    When UltraKey is used at home, they log into their school or district record the same way they do when they are at school and the experience is just as seamless.

  • Can students use UltraKey at home?

    Yes! And we make it easy.

    We are surprised to hear that some online instruction systems limit logins to the subscriber sites. That defeats the purpose of having online instruction as far as we are concerned!

    UltraKey Online provides friendly secure login at school, at home, and anywhere else a student may be. For security reasons, we cannot provide login details here, but trust us. It's really simple and typical of the industry.

  • Does UltraKey Online install any plug-ins or require any other capability?

    To make sure UltraKey Online serves enterprise needs, we have partnered with several major school districts.

    UltraKey Online requires no plug-ins. It conforms to html5 and www3 standards.

    It operates on every major browser, and on every computing platform.

    It is responsive to different screen configurations from small to large, vertical to horizontal. So it is perfect for IPads and Chromebooks.

  • Does UltraKey Online work on Chromebooks and iPads?

    Absolutely! We knew going in that iPad and Chromebook compatibility would be important to our customers.

    Perhaps it goes without saying but, iPad users need to have a full keyboard to benefit from UltraKey Online instruction. UltraKey Online is not designed to teach tap-typing, which is a very different skill.

  • How much do subscriptions cost?

    Subscriptions are sold by the student seat (users). To keep life simple and grant maximum capability to our customers, subscribers may create as many administration, school manager, and class manager accounts as they need, without affecting their subscription. The price is based solely on users.

    Price per student per year, varies with the number of users and the number of years purchased at a time.

    Since UltraKey Online can accommodate very large districts and enterprises, smaller subscribers are welcome to pool their subscriptions with other subscribers, so they can achieve more efficient pricing. One party must act as the primary subscriber. Just let us know what you have in mind.

    The product purchase area above, lets you immediately determine a price by selecting the range of users you will purchase, and the number of users. The price per user for the period of subscription immediately appears. Enter the exact number of users you require, and click Add to Card.

    This site works in USD currency only. Subscriptions can be purchased off-line in the currency of your country. USD pricing applies to all countries not listed.

  • How are user seats counted and re-used?

    The value of any subscription seat is deemed to be used up when a student uses the account in the current subscription year.

    In a given year of subscription, no account can be cleared and used by a second student.

    If a user account is created, deleted and purged, without being used in the current subscription year, the unused seat is returned to the subscription, so a new account can be created. As a result, schools don't consume seats for students who may have moved before they used their account.

    If an enterprise deletes and purges user accounts that were used last year but not in the current year, the seats are returned to the subscription. This means that schools can delete old accounts any time, without using their subscription to keep them in play.

    If you purchase several years of use at one time, subscription usage is governed by the anniversary of the subscription. For example, an account not used since the last anniversary, can be deleted and purged so another student can be enrolled.

     

  • When does a subscription start and end?

    In case our typical start and end don't suit your needs, please let us know what you need and why.

    Since most of our customers are school, our subscriptions end each summer on June 30, with a grace period extending to August 31.

    Even if you purchase in January of a given year, the subscription extends to June 30 of the next year. If you purchase in the Fall of a given year, the subscription ends June 30 of the following summer. We do no prorate subscription costs because the primary benefit of UltraKey Online is in its instruction, not in the amount of time the subscription provides.

     

  • I used UltraKey at another school. Is it true Bytes of Learning provides a loyalty credit?

    You have that correct. When you ask for a quote, be sure to tell us much as you can. Loyalty credits vary with the new license or subscription you are buying.

  • We have an UltraKey desktop license. Can we get a credit for it?

    At Bytes of Learning, we have a no-customer-left-behind policy. Even if your school had a license for UltraKey 1, issued in 1989, you would get a credit against your first year of purchase. Usually about $50.

    If your school purchased within the past year before purchasing a subscription to UltraKey Online, it would get a 100% credit on its purchase up to but not exceeding the cost of a first subscription. You can maximize your benefit by purchasing more than one year of subscription.

    Please tell us your needs in terms of users, and we will happily provide a quotation. Be sure to tell us what UltraKey license you now own?

  • How can we evaluate UltraKey Online?
