What Are The Online Applications That Can Improve Your Study Skills?
A swift review of some useful apps to help you focus on studying when preparing for your examinations. Which app is better for study? from Quizlet that gives you a more interactive way of learning, to our Student Exam countdown, here is a list of five productive study apps for students;
1. My Study Life [free; Android, iOS, Windows, Chrome]
My Study Life is an all-in-one student organiser, with scheduling and class timetabling that can sync with your calendar. The reminders notify you of incomplete tasks and upcoming classes and exams. It provides a task manager that goes beyond the simple to-do list, with functionality specific to student lifestyles. It’s also syncs across all devices, saves everything to the cloud and is available offline. So you can work on a paper offline, then save it to the cloud and have it linked to a task and timetable.
2. Exam Countdown [free; Android, iOS]
If you need even more help organising your exam dates and keeping yourself motivated, Exam Countdown is for you. It keeps the study focus up with a daily countdown to all your exams. You can colour code all your upcoming exams and add symbols, such as an abacus for maths or a book for English. You can also share on social media whereabouts you are in your countdown, which means you can help classmates stay on track too.
3. Quizlet [free, Android, iOS]
Quizlet is popular with teachers and students alike. The app allows you to create your own study materials across a wide range of subjects or use a vast library of materials created by other Quizlet users. Teachers use it to set their students challenges and tests by creating specific materials and then sharing it online, in or out of the classroom. Quizlet is a fun way to learn, as it uses videos and audio, so you can make your own dynamic flashcards and play learning games, especially useful for learning languages.
4. Pocket [Android, iOS, Chrome]
Spending as much time as we do on our phones and computers, surfing web pages with so much content, it’s hard to read everything we come across, which can be a shame when it could be something useful for your studies. If only there was a way to save things for later without it getting lost. Say hello to Pocket. It allows you to save articles, videos and other web content in a vibrant and easy to read experience on your phone, computer or tablet. It has powerful search and tagging tools, which means you can organise web pages by subject. It also works really well with apps like Twitter, Flipboard, Facebook and Evernote, among others.
5. Google Translate [free; Android, iOS]
With over 90 languages and more than 200 million people using Google Translate, there’s no reason not to be understood these days, no matter where you are or who you’re trying to communicate with: a Welsh speaking Argentinian in Patagonia or a reindeer herder in Siberia. Quite simply Google Translate is essential if you’re studying in a new language, or you’re a language student. It can also help you feel more comfortable in new countries and situations.
