Some students are having difficulties with Typing Agent using their iPads with external keyboards. This is the result of recent Apple updates that are breaking previous Apple settings. Since each keyboard behaves differently, it may be that you need to change keyboard settings.
Here is what we suggest:
1. Scroll down to the bottom where it says, "Change how the keys respond on an external keyboard".
2. Increase the Key Repeat interval to Fastest. If that doesn't work, try some other keyboard settings like Slow Keys. Taking steps like these will find what the commands are that will work with the your iPad and keyboards as there are many of varieties.

We have been experiencing some intermittent issues with our multi-player games loading. Our developers are aware of the issue and actively working toward a resolution. Please direct students to our other games during this time.
This has been resolved
Due to the large demand placed on the server from schools wanting to try Yeti Academy, we are reconfiguring the auto transfer feature from TA to Yeti Academy to optimize and balance server load. We have removed the blue Yeti Academy bar from the TA School Admin dashboard until reconfiguration is complete. Auto transfer functionality for schools to try Yeti Academy should resume on 2.29.2021.
K-2 Freezing Fix - The reported freezing of the K-2 Keyboarding Foundations lessons has been resolved by our developer team. Your students can now type away without having to refresh their browsers or log out and in to do their keyboarding activities.
An issue was found when a teachers or administrator deletes a student, the license usage would not reflect the deleted student. Support has implemented a temporary fix to allow teachers and administrators to add new students.

During the Winter break Typing Agent developers performed many updates. After users returned to the program we where made aware of a few issues:
1. When completing any world or scheduled test the screen would go white and not allow progression. Our engineers and support team identified and resolved the issue as of 11:00 AM PST 1-2-2019
2. Some progress form certain clients has been reported as lost. Support staff is currently working with affected clients to discover the root cause.
This has been resolved as of 01/14/2019
UPDATE: as of 01-11-2019 the button has been added but a bug was discovered with it. When a student clicks on the practice button it replays the video instead of taking them to the mountain. The engineering team is working on a solution.
It has been brought to the attention of our support team that at the end of the K2 Mountain curriculum after the Yeti celebration users do not have any options to proceed back to the home screen or to the mountain. Our development team is currently working on the implementation of a button that will bring students back to the mountain for additional practice opportunities. Workaround: Please have your students use the bottom right "phone home" button to return to K2 Mountain to continue practicing. (92)
