One of the main differences between the individual and school subscriptions of Typing Pal Online is that the school option gives users more features. Typing Pal Online states that school accounts have the option to manage multiple schools from one account and that administrators have more access to resources.
The school version of Typing Pail was overhauled for the 2014-2015 school year, according to the company's website. The update included advanced features and the ability to organize the objectives and content associated with each lesson. Teachers can also import student lists and see activity for each student. Another option available with the school edition of Typing Pal Online is the ability to create a specific objective and exercises for each student.
Typing Pal Online also states that the individual version focuses on learning the basics of typing and keyboard skills. The individual version also provides tips and hints on developing healthy working habits and learning how to type more efficiently. Exercises are custom and tailor-made for each user, but there is no teacher or administrator associated with the account. Users can work at their own pace, and access their statistics at anytime. Those with Typing Pal Online accounts only need access to the Internet to be able to practice typing.
