When it’s time to study and absorb all the facts, ideas and theories that you’re learning and apply your understanding of them, it’s important to be organised.

You can prepare for the most effective use of your study time with some handy digital tools that will help you to plan, revise, take cohesive notes and collaborate with fellow students.

Here are five digital tools that you can use to help you be more productive, stay motivated and make use of time even when you’re on the go.

Planning:

GoConqr

GoConqr is a clever app and desktop software that allows you to build mind maps, create flashcards and compile quizzes to help you learn and memorise your topic. It also has flexible study planner and note feature.

Padlet

Available on iOS, Android and desktop. Free

Build your own unique notes on a topic and post them to a wall, where you can invite other students to collaborate. The notes can include pictures, documents, links, video or text. This is an ideal tool for group planning and sharing ideas.
