# Keyboard shortcuts in the student courseware – web platform

At Hawkes, we want to make sure students are focusing on learning the content of your lessons, not on how to input their answers into our system.

When students are in the Practice and Certify modes, they have access to a keypad within the courseware.

The keypad is available to students; however, we also have keyboard shortcuts for inputting answers at learn.hawkeslearning.com. These shortcuts accommodate all students, especially those who have motor disabilities and cannot use a computer mouse to access the keypad.

Check out the available keyboard shortcuts below, and feel free to share with students! The shortcuts are also available on our support page.
