5 Online Resources To Make Studying Easy

5 Online Resources to Make Studying Easier

I think a lot of people think about studying and immediately cringe because they think about long hours reading a boring textbook or painfully sorting through notes. You shouldn’t fret about it, though, because there are quite a few online resources that make studying much easier!

5 Online Resources to Make Studying Easy

1. Quizlet

Quizlet is a fantastic resource if you’re studying for a test. Users can create flashcards and tests based off of vocabulary words and concepts. These are published and you can access them if you’re taking that class or a related one. For instance, there are some marketing terms that I couldn’t find in the text book, but the right definitions were on Quizlet! It’s definitely a website to add to your bookmarks!

2. StudyBlue

StudyBlue is similar to Quizlet in that you can access flashcards and quizzes, however it’s mainly focused on your own materials instead of what other students published. You can track your progress, set reminders, create custom quizzes, and connect with students who are in your class. There is also a paid premium version for $7 a month where you can get full access to shared content and unlimited study guides!

3. GoConqr

GoConqr is another collective database where people can submit their own materials, however you do not get unlimited access to them until you refer 3 friends to the website. With GoConqr, you have the ability to create a mind map, quiz, flashcards, notes, and slideshows that you can share with your friends. Perfect for a group project, if you ask me!

4. Duolingo

If you’re studying a foreign language, Duolingo is the tool for you! Whether you have an upcoming Spanish test or you’re trying to take up French on the side, it will definitely help you master the vocabulary you want to learn! It has learning sessions where you can listen, speak, and write in the language you’re studying and has grading system to help you advance from level to level.

5. StudySoup

StudySoup is by far one of the most unique studying communities online! You can buy notes and study guides uploaded by other users, but here’s the big plus: If you’re a good notetaker, you can upload your own notes and get money every time someone uses them! Forbes even noted that the website’s more detailed note-takers are making upwards of $1200 a month! Sound interesting? Maybe you should use this as an opportunity to take better notes and make money off of them. As college students, we need as much money as we can possibly get, am I right?
