Keyboarding as writing apparatus is an essential skill in the technological era and more self-regulated learners perform better in keyboarding than less self-regulated learners. In order to indicate this, students registered at the Faculty of Arts for a compulsory keyboarding and word-processing course completed a questionnaire to identify both more and less self-regulated learners. From the literature it is deduced that keyboarding has become a necessary skill for writing in a technological era. The results of the empirical study indicated that self-regulated learners performed better in keyboard skills tests than less self-regulated learners.
