Google Classroom

Modern technologies help to achieve just flawless communication between students and teachers. And we are absolutely sure that there’s no better way to organize a learning process and make you, a student, feel that you are a part of the learning process and, what’s most important, the vital participant of it than with Google Classroom.

What’s really cool for you as a student on MasterClass is that you can both learn what you need and explore new interesting hobbies in your free time there. MasterClass services are not that cheap and will cost $15 a month, but believe us: this money will be invested very well since you will get access to a huge library with educational videos created for you by the greatest minds of this time.


Do you really need this screen capturer or any other online video recorder in your arsenal of learning tools? In our opinion, absolutely yes. Screen capturers are crucial for online or blended learning because the classes you take online can be legally recorded and reused for rewatching and a better understanding of the material.

We should warn you that even though you can legally record your own webinars and classes, you need to warn all the other parties of your classes that you plan to record a particular online session. You need to get the informed consent of all the parties to avoid any problems from occurring in the future.


This is another game-based learning app that makes education fun and interactive! This online learning platform was created for teachers and allows them to create game trivia in Kahoot.

As a student, you can play with your fellow students or friends in Kahoot: create quizzes, prepare for exams, or just in a fun and interactive form to deepen your knowledge in different subjects.


Who can afford to ignore the most influential video hub in the world nowadays? It is an absolutely crucial platform for anyone who wants to learn anything online, and we think that YouTube was the reason people started noticing the benefits of online learning.

Of course, the best thing about it is that YouTube is free, and thousands of people share their knowledge just for the sake of sharing. You can’t become a rocket scientist through YouTube videos, but you can start learning about rockets through the clips!


Knoword is an amazing platform for polishing your academic skills in all kinds of subjects! You can find here trivia about social studies, geography, science, art, language, etc.

All you need to do in Knoword is to click on the subject you are interested in, open any given unit and start answering different interesting questions. We love using Kahoot as a fun way to learn new things, and you can even play with your friends there. It is not just a learning platform, it is a fun quiz-based tool that helps people to stay interested in studying.

Microsoft Powerpoint

Distance learning has many tech benefits, and some types of regular homework here also can be replaced with digital alternatives. As for presentations, the classic for offline education, we, of course, have excellent ways of creating presentations with Microsoft PowerPoint.

PowerPoint has been popular for years and is very intuitive and easy to use.


This one is excellent if you have problems with productivity. Plans and try-not-to-forget things can create absolute chaos in your head. That’s why you need useful programs like Evernote to help you to stay in touch with your day-to-day tasks.
