4 websites to make studying easy peasy, lemon squeezy
Studying. Something we all have to do, and something that some of us just don't enjoy. We'd rather be on the internet and surfing social media. But what if I told you that it was possible to use technology and the internet to help you master your work? Believe it, because it's true. Here are 5 websites that can help you study - FOR FREE!
Quizlet is a fantastic online flashcard maker. This works best with terms and definitions, and you can add pictures to your flashcards. It helps you learn, and allows you to test yourself in different ways. You're also able to import terms and definitions from Word, Excel or Google Docs, which saves a ton of time setting up your flashcards. You also have access to public flashcard sets which can come in handy. Pro tip - search for the content you need before making your own, you may be able to use something that someone has already created. Just make sure to check the definitions with your textbook!
If you're looking for a supercharged notebook, then head over to Nimblenotes. It has great features like adding YouTube videos, labels, questions and definitions. You can also filter your notes and search within them for something specific you can add to. It's great for in-class note-taking but will be fantastic to use it for studying for your exams if you can only do it at home. Be smart and record your notes daily, so that you can focus on more important things over the weekends. It will also make studying for exams a breeze!
3. Khan Academy
The number of times I have turned to Khan Academy when it comes to Maths and Science should make me a shareholder. Offering much, much more than just Maths and Science, Khan Academy is an excellent video study resource. The videos are easy to follow and offer exercises. You can also track your progress when you create an account. Everyone could use some extra help, and Khan Academy is just waiting for you to log on!
Quizlet + mindmaps = GoConqr. I would recommend this to older learners because it's not as user friendly as Quizlet. It has great functionality when you get used to it, and you can really map your studies and notes with this website. They also have a mobile app, so you can access your notes with ease wherever you are. Use this if you want to make notes over a long period of time. Best for Matric students and above.
I hope these websites help you study and make a difference in your academic confidence. If you need any personal help, contact us to have a chat about your options.
