Keyboarding Question

Here's a question I would like to throw out to the group for your opinion. In the past, when I have taught a computer class to basic level ESL students, I have asked them to complete a basic keyboarding course, such as the one available at Goodtyping (http://www.goodtyping.com). I haven't taught this course for a while, and given changes in the way students access computers, especially on mobile devices, I'm wondering if keyboarding is a skill that is worth spending time on. What do you think?
