Keyboarding skills for online students

How fast do you type? Are you an 80-words-per-minute speed demon or are you a two-fingered hunt-and-pecker? Your answer may affect your success in an online degree program in project management. At work, you may have an administrative assistant to help you, but in your master's degree program in project management you will be the one typing the papers and emails. You will be chatting with other students online and writing discussion forum posts. While you don't need to be an expert, strong typing skills will reduce the amount of time you need to spend on these activities and reduce your frustration level as well. If your typing skills are not strong, check with your local community college to see if they offer a course on keyboarding. And then, practice, practice, practice!
