The increase of remote learning has brought with it a huge rise in the number of online learning and education platforms, and with the right tools, studying can now be more effective and collaborative. With a vast amount of material available, it is hard to know what is effective, and so we have pulled together our favourite apps, that aim to help students with their day-to-day lives.
SimpleMind (iOS / Android)
An app that helps you organise your work and collaborate with others. Brainstorming is now much easier with the Simplemind app, their free lay-out allows you to write notes, draw mind maps and share ideas at the same time!
EVERNOTE (iOS / Android)
Accessible and user-friendly, a great app to store all your notes organised and digitalized. It features web clipping and allows you to edit your notes both off and online.
MasterClass (iOS / Android)
Learn something new every day! Working with over a hundred world bests, you can learn something new from making bread to the art of negotiation.
DuoLingo (iOS / Android)
A fun and free app to learn any languages you want. You can practise your speaking, listening, writing and vocabulary easily through simple games to enhance your learning.
FOREST (iOS / Android)
Imagine doing a good deed while you are focusing on your studies. Every minute you are not using your phone, you will earn credits that helps plant trees in the real world.
Offtime ( IOS /Android)
Offtime allows you to focus while having the option to set different rules for important calls and texts. It allows you to invite others to join you with useful insight too.
(Alarmy) Sleep If U Can (iOS / Android)
If you struggle to wake up in the morning, Alarmy is a simple and fun way of forcing you to wake up every morning. Replacing the old fashion “pushing the button”, Alarmy will only turn the alarm off when the required task is completed. They have many fun tasks like taking a photo of an object in a different room or do a math equation.
Headspace (iOS / Android)
Everyone needs a few minutes to themselves once in a while. Headspace focuses on mindfulness and basic meditation helps reduce stress and improve your sleep too.
We do hope these apps are of interest and help make your education and learning that little bit smoother!
