Do you have any difficulty organizing your study? Don’t worry! Technology can help you out with tools and apps that can improve your study method and productivity.
There are many tools, but today we would like to recommend 5 apps for university students that can optimize your studies, helping you facing exams with more serenity.
If you are one of those students who tends to record lectures, you are well aware of the time it takes to unwind them to produce summaries and outlines. In order to optimise your time, we recommend Transcribe, an online app that automatically and quickly transcribes your recordings word for word.
Simply upload the audio note or video you shot (imported from your smartphone or directly from Dropbox and other supported apps) to the app and Transcribe will transcribe it for you. The app is completely free but only available for iOS devices.
Evernote is a free app available on both mobile and desktop that allows you to take notes. The aim is to digitize your university material and make it more handy. It is a great tool for working on university projects, dissertations but also to help you organize your study day, through checklists, for example. It can also connect with Google Calendar, helping you remember your weekly commitments.
How much time do you spend on your summaries? A lot, maybe too much?
Many students in fact have as a study method to summarize everything they read in order to have the most important information at their fingertips, in a clear and schematic way.
But is it actually possible to make a quick online summary?
Yes, the online tool Paragraphs enables you to make summaries directly from your notes, handouts or books completely free of charge.
First you have to upload your documentation to the platform, type a question related to a specific topic and then receive the answer directly from the app.Thanks to artificial intelligence, Paragraphs extracts the paragraph containing the answer to your question from your documentation. This way you can save the answers you need with a simple click, and quickly create a summary on the topic.
Note is the perfect app for students for innovative note-taking, rewinding and re-listening to lectures. The app allows you to record the lecture and insert notes into it, thanks to a notepad that will open as soon as the recording starts. This way, in the final file, you will have the audio of the lecture, your notes and the precise minute when the professor explained what you jotted down. Original, isn’t it?
The app is free and available on both iOS and Android devices.
The last app for students we recommend today is Session, which is useful for organizing your study and monitoring the time you spend preparing for exams or studying individual books. The app is very simple and works exactly like a stopwatch. It lets you create tasks representing exams, books or handouts and activate the stopwatch when you start studying. Thanks to Session, you will avoid getting distracted during your study session and you will know exactly how much time you have spent preparing for an exam.
As you have just seen, there are many tools and apps for students that allow you to optimize and organize your study, helping you to increase productivity, improve performance and, consequently, results.
At the same time, the study environment is also crucial to being able to concentrate. At our In-Domus Milan campuses, you can access study rooms and study comfortably and in complete tranquillity, thanks to the quiet, bright and well-organized spaces.
