Helpful Academic Apps to Keep in Mind This Semester

Savannah Boone, Editor

With the many challenges going on with online classes and just trying to earn a degree in the middle of a pandemic, it is very easy to get overwhelmed with one’s academics. Though, with the help of a lot of academic apps, it can be so much easier to study for classes. 

One of the most popular websites that students use to study is called Quizlet. Quizlet has different features to help someone study. For example, it has the use of flashcards and a “Learn” feature that allows one to go over course content until it feels like the student has mastered all areas of the course content. 

Kaydee White, an elementary education major from Princeton, Indiana, advocates for Quizlet. She also vouches for the academic app called Grammarly. This app helps one with spelling and grammar when writing things like an essay. It also helps to improve sentences that do not sound clear. 

Terreze Brown, a music major from Vincennes, Indiana, also likes to use Quizlet to study for her classes. Since Brown majors in music, she also advocates for the apps EarMaster and Earpeggio. Both of these apps are training apps that help build music theory skills. 

Sohelia Strunk, an electronics technology and engineering management major from Bedford, Indiana, also likes to use Quizlet and Grammarly, but another app that she vouches for is one called Socratic by Google. Socratic helps one solve different problems by allowing the user to take a picture of the question that they are working on and giving them a step-by-step way to answering it.

Ashley Evans, a business administration major from Vincennes, Indiana advocates for an app called Chegg. 

Chegg is really good and most of the time it even has solutions to most homework answers already. If not you can put in the question and it will help you solve it,” Evans said.

There are so many apps and websites that can help one succeed in their academics. Take advantage of these apps, especially in trying times like the ones we’re living in now.
