With the semester getting towards the end and professors adding to student’s workload, it is very easy to get stressed out and crumble under the pressure. Luckily though there are many tools to help with studying that can relieve some of the burden. Here are a few that stood out to us:
- StudyBlue: This is a free app that allows you to put notes, pictures, and text into flashcards and then use the flashcards on your smartphone. Flashcards can also be uploaded to Facebook and past cards can be viewed as well.
- Flashcards*: This savvy flashcard app created by John Holliday Software is free and can be used with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
- AccessApps: Windows applications that provide solutions to help with writing, reading and planning. Some apps can be used to save text to MP3, which is great for notes and readings, while others can be used to read back words and sentences as you type them.
- iSaidWhat?: A voice recorder that will allow you to record any notes or lectures. It is great for recording study guides you can listen to later, like in the car or waiting for the bus.
- Transcribe: This is a free Chrome app that transcribes recorded audio into text. This is fabulous for turning recorded lectures or interviews into notes to quote or refer back to later.
