Apart from the age-based categories there are app sub-categories like language learning apps, remote tuition platforms, learning apps for adults, learning apps for the disabled, apps for specialized test preparation, and educational mobile apps for kids.
Benefits of Using Education Mobile Apps
Students Love Apps
This is nothing new, we all know it! Children of all ages are almost inseparable from their (or their parent's) smartphones. Any new app, whether it is game, shopping, entertainment, or even a learning-based app is the coolest or hottest thing for them and they tend to explore it a lot more than their course books. However, it is important that they dedicate enough time studying, completing their school work, and preparing for their exams. It is only natural that when this learning is combined intelligently with mobile apps, the students become a lot more responsive and their will and enthusiasm to learn is heightened exponentially. The concept of mobile learning is currently experiencing a great interest and enthusiasm among the students, teachers, parents, and the teaching institutions equally.
2.Smart & Systematic Learning
Education apps have the capability to impart to all users, smart & systematic learning. All the content on an education app would be organized and arranged neatly. This arrangement not only increases, among the students or any app users, a craving to learn more and more through the app but a craving to learn in a systematic manner. A well-designed app has a systematic arrangement that take the students through the app, and the content on it in a smooth, logical flow without the students consciously making any special efforts for the same. This inculcates in the students an urge and a habit to learn systematically.
3. Portability & Mobility
Mobile phones are just that – mobile & portable. You can carry them anywhere you go and can use them even on the go. The students or their parents can carry them in the pockets and use the education apps in any setting that the child feels comfortable in. hence, with education apps, learning is not confined to classroom spaces, homes, or any defined space, it goes with you wherever you go!
4.Easy Tracking of Progress
Some education apps are enabled with features to track the children's progress, which is something that every parent wants. The parents can keep a track on the way the app is helping their child better themselves as they learn and enhance their math, reading, or comprehension skills.
5. Novel Methods of Learning
As children move from the traditional classroom setups to the wonders of mobile learning and education apps, they are exposed to new learning methods. There is a healthy gratification of course content which indulges the students in new ways of learning and helps them understand things from a whole new perspective.
Features of a Good Educational App
1. Live Tutorials & Interactive Sessions:
One of the main features of an educational app is Live Tutorials & Interactive Sessions, which allow the students to join live lectures and teaching sessions of their respective teachers/ professors if they have skipped any.
This feature allows us to have a back and forth of ideas and information between the students and the teachers. Additionally, one can also add a feature of the private teaching sessions and allow the users to be able to book a private teaching session with their tutors where they can ask their personal doubts.
2. Regular Practice & Mock Tests:
Another important feature of the educational app is Regular Practice & Mock Tests. It is vital to include weekly mock test assessments in the e-Learning app to conduct timely tests and understand the student's level of understanding as well as to make them understand their own level of preparation and their weaknesses.
3. Push Notifications & Course Activities:
Push notifications are the necessity of mobile applications. It helps you stay connected to the users in a non-intrusive manner. Push Notifications are a very effective and powerful feature. They allow you to interact with your users without doing so. It is also a must-have feature as far as the educational app is concerned.
It offers important notifications to the students and teachers specifically, if there is a change in the course and also can be used to send users reminders of their upcoming plans, they can be used to send small motivational quotes, and to send them reminders about revision, etc.
When your app is limited to providing content only in one language, understand how limited your audience becomes. Hence, providing learning content in multiple languages can effectively open new worlds for the proliferation of your app.
5. Progress Tracking & Achievements:
Progress Tracking & Achievements is the must-have feature of an educational app. One of the motivational tools for a student, as well as the parents, is being able to see the student's achievements and to be able to track the progress.
6. Attendance Management:
Another important feature of an educational app is Attendance Management that makes managing & marking attendance of both the students as well as teachers a hassle-free task.
With the help of this feature, the teacher can see the attendance of the whole class in one go or the attendance of a specific student for a particular month. Teachers can also mark attendance with an app in less than 60 seconds.
Creating an app for a school, college, or university is not really just a fancy thing anymore, it is a necessity. Not only does it help the educational institutes reach out to the students and indicate that they are aware of their requirements and preferences, but also simplifies the operations of their various departments.
