Technology is changing rapidly and is making its way into almost every sphere of our life. Most of the technical geniuses are young people who have recently crossed the student phase. Therefore, it’s no surprise that advances in technology are starting to make a student’s life better and simple. Here are the 5 apps and websites which will help you study better.
What is student life without a timetable? Thankfully, now you don’t have to jot down the timetable down in a notebook as the My Class Schedule app stores all information such as schedules, homework, timetable, exam dates, etc. Easy to use, the app needs you to feed in all the relevant information to keep reminding you about upcoming classes and exams. Moreover, the timetable is colour-coded and easy to read. The app also has a feature to automatically mute the phone during a class.
Evernote has long been one of the most popular note-taking apps and recent updates have only made users happier. Simply put, Evernote will help you organize every note and study material and store it in one place – whatever the format is. With this android/iOS app, you can take notes in text, sketch, photo, audio, video, PDF, web clipping, and tons of other formats. You can also use it as a digital notepad – use its camera to easily capture, scan and comment on pieces of paper. Evernote allows you to add notebooks to a stack while notes can be sorted into a notebook, tagged, edited, commented upon, searched, and exported as part of a notebook.
The free My Study Life app replaces any paper planner by keeping track of your workload across multiple platforms and devices. Manage your classes with week and day timetables, keep track of tasks and exams in the cloud, and receive notifications to keep you up to date with exam schedules and classes. A clean interface and the ability to color code your classes make the calendar easy to read.
Wolfram Alpha answers your queries directly by computing the answer from externally sourced curated data. The Wolfram Alpha app carries more than 10 trillion pieces of data and 50,000 equations. The app uses its assets to compute answers and generate reports on topics ranging from trigonometry and astronomy to genealogy and mythology. It provides you with graphs, step-by-step explanations, and formula details. Wolfram describes their service as the modern-day Star Trek computer. Simply type or speak a question and you will be given an answer.
Ted is a website with videos from eminent speakers from all spheres of life. It contains short, yet powerful videos/talks on culture, business, technology etc. given by people who have done some outstanding work in that field. Watching the videos on TED will open your mind to fascinating ideas and motivate you to do your best. Be careful, as it can also end up being a bit of a rabbit-hole – so make sure you don’t end up spending days and nights on a TED marathon.
We hope these 5 apps and websites will help you study better and make your student life just that tad bit more manageable. Check out some good YouTube channels for studies and effective tips for studying, which will help you excel in your exams.
