We all want to start fresh next semester. What are some of your recommended tools?
- Trello is awesome, and here is why : - it's a "sandbox" (you can create whatever you want with Trello) - very simple to use - tons of ways to automatize your boards (Zapier, IFTTT, Power-Ups ...) - you can stock ideas, tasks or goals easily
- Zenkit is great for projects, collaboration and working with data. You can switch between different view to work with the best one for each of your tasks. If you want to make an overview of your course I would recommend starting with the mind map but you can also use an easy listview, kanban board or table view. It´s free for up to 5 people but we may have some arrangements with your university;)
- Once you get how Notion works, it really excels in project management, research and database. It's a pleasure to use and super customizable.I only started using it a couple of days ago, but I swear my university, work, and private life make much more sense to me now. The UI is minimal and bright, but doesn't get boring because of emojis and cover images. The templates are a-plenty and very useful, and if a template is missing – you can just create your own page from scratch, using one of Notion's many block elements!
- The BEST todo-list app on the market IMO. I have folders for each of my classes and clubs and can organize all of my assignments within. I also use IFTTT to integrate it with my Trello tasks and Google Calendar. Oh yeah, and it's FREE!Brenna L made this productIn addition to being ranked by The Verge & Engadet as the #1 to-do list app, Todoist has a 50% discount for students/educators: https://todoist.com/education.
- Andrei Țiț made this productIt helps all the university parties involved - students, professors, and departments - in the following way: • Students keep all their lecture notes in one place and collaborate easily with their colleagues, even when not in the classroom • Professors schedule their courses in advance (even for the whole semester), as well as add resources, notes, and assignments to create the course curricula, then share them with their students • The marketing and other departments have a tunnel-like view on what's top priority, and can track their time for future job estimations. Plus it's free for one year, all features included, without any limitations whatsoever.
- Jotform is an online form-creating tool with thousands of free templates and layouts. There are lots of educational surveys and forms for university students. I think this tool will help them at their research projects. Most importantly it is free :)
- Jasenko Hadzic made this productFor all the events that students are collaboration on. Tame gathers all your event planning in one place and allows the student organisations to improve year by year, instead of losing the knowledge year by year and starting from scratch due to spreadsheet chaos.
- The best todo list app out there, really nice UI! Can also be used for note taking, which is a bonus. It is very flexible - it can be used as a vertical Kanban, weekly planner, simple todo list or bullet journal! It can even be used for collaboration with a built in chat. TRY IT 😻
- The first app comes to mind is AppLock. I am sure many people are worried about their phone privacy, but they don’t know how to deal with it. There are some apps that you can use to prevent people from snooping around your phone or even look through it without your permission. AppLock is one of them. But that’s not why I recommend it. The most interesting feature in this app is intruder selfie, which takes picture of the people who input the wrong password. I like this feature because on day I left my phone at home, when I got back, there are several selfies taken by AppLock shows that my kids are trying to use my phone. You really need to try this feature, it’s really funny to see these unexpected selfies. You will laugh, trust me!Mobile security is more and more important nowadays, that’s why I think no matter who you are, what you do. You will need an app to protect your phone! I am using this app called ‘AppLock’, which is amazing because it can lock all of my apps, images even videos. This app is always on my list when it comes to app recommendation. The one thing that I like the most about this app is that it can take photos of the person who’s trying to unlock your phone! This feature is really funny because I always got the intruder selfie notification from my kids. They are trying really hard to unlock my phone for video games. If you are a cautious people, you really do need one of this app.
