Hi
I was looking to see if you'd continued developing your original presentation tool MP Express and stumbled upon your typing programme and one of my
children's old favourites, Zoombinis! Great finds, thank you. Would you be able to let me know if MP Express is available in any form?
Best wishes, Sue

Hello, Sue Shee.

MP Express was a wonderful presentation tool. Unfortunately, market conditions were tilted so heavily in favor of PowerPoint, that alternatives like MP Express could not be sustained. Perhaps there will be a place for more creative tools like it in the future. I hope you will enjoy Zoombinis, which was revived by TERC about two years ago.

In the meantime, we have focused our efforts on advancing UltraKey, which is now available in desktop and online formats.

Hi there,
we just began using the lessons for our boys! Amazing so far! My nine year old is so excited - he's got home row figured out, and he's thrilled! :-D I didn't start typing lessons until I was in grade nine. This is not only taking me back, but is really an essential and excellent life skill!

However, we're now we're ready for our other son to begin, but I'm not clear how to change users. What am I missing?

Looking forward to hearing back as you're able.

Many thanks!
Jennifer

Hi, Jennifer. This is a great comment because it shares your excitement and the success!

I am unable to locate your license on our site -- glad to add it to your account, if you would like to send it along to custservice@bytesoflearning.com.

If you are using the desktop format of UltraKey 6, family license, you need only have the one son log out, and have the other log in and create a new record. UltraKey 6 will keep a record for each of up to 8 family users.

If you are using UltraKey Online, family subscription, you log in as the parent, and go to your dashboard. Then click Enrollment. Make a new record for your second son.

For additional conversation and questions, we encourage users to go to: http://www.bytesoflearning.com/contact-form

Best regards, Art Willer M.Ed., President.
