Online Tools That Make a College Student’s Life Easier

Nowadays it is difficult to imagine a student who goes through their college without a smartphone, tablet, or at least a computer. Young people practically spend their days with modern technology, but not all of them have realized that their devices can save instead of waste time.

If you try to implement these educational tools in your studying activities, you will not only improve the quality of your learning methods, but will also go through college more effortlessly.

1. Studyblue

The website is blue and true to its silly name, but it’s much more than what your initial impression may imply. This is an online application that allows you to easily create flash cards and have them on your smartphone at all times. If you don’t use flash cards as a technique of memorizing information, then you should definitely try it out.

In addition to creating your own flash cards, you can also use the website to access studying material that has already been created by fellow contributors.

2. Diigo

When you have to work on an important academic writing project that requires a lot of online research, Diigo is an inevitable tool to use. You can easily add it to your preferred web browser and use it to add notes and highlight important information to the websites you are saving for further reference. All this information will be saved to your account, so you will automatically see it when you open those websites.

The best thing about Diigo is that you never have to worry about losing important information if a website gets deleted, since the tool saves both an image and HTML version of the web pages in your personal library.

3. MindMeister

Allow us to make a statement before you’re drawn back by the price of this service (the Edu Personal version is accessible for a monthly fee of $2.99): it is absolutely worth it! MindMeister is the epitome of an effective online brainstorming tool. All mind maps you create will be hosted online, so you will be able to access them from any device with access to Internet.

Your school projects will become not only more enjoyable to complete, but also more impressive with the use of this brainstorming tool.

4. CampusBookRentals

Is there a student out there who doesn’t think that textbooks are overpriced? Each additional textbook you have to buy creates an unbearable burden upon your fragile budget. At CampusBookRentals, you can rent any textbook you need, use it for the given period of time and return it to the service with free shipping.

This website will help you save a considerable amount of money and still get the proper edition of all needed textbooks. These guys are so nice that they even allow you to write and highlight in the books.

5. Essay Eagles

When the end of another term is approaching and you have too much studying to do for the exam session, you cannot even think of completing all papers and reports that your professors demand. However, written projects are also important for your grades, so you’ll need to find a way to submit them on time.

Essay Eagles is a paper writing service that will help you achieve that! At this website, you can rely on the assistance of professional writers from all study areas, so no project will be left undone before the deadline.

6. Rescue Time

The biggest issue that’s preventing college students from achieving the results they aim for is the lack of time. If you feel like you’re being distracted by online temptations whenever you sit in front of your computer, this tool will give you a reality hit and tell you which websites are consuming your productivity.

Rescue Time is a simple add-on that you can install on your web browser and get a detailed report that tells you how much time you’ve wasted on social media. When you have access to this information, you’ll become aware that your focus and time-management skills need improvement.

Every academic problem has a solution

If you haven’t started using the “good” side of the Internet, which can help you go through your college studies with less stress and more success, then you should start doing that today! All tools we mentioned above can help you in different ways, so every single minute you spend exploring them will pay off.
