Free Educational Apps for Students

1. Google Classroom


In an educational institution, students are often required to complete and submit homework and assignments. And teachers have to review and grade them at the earliest. But is this process as simple as it sounds?. 

All these processes are incredibly frustrating for everyone to say the least. Wouldn’t it be amazing if there is a way to streamline these processes?

Google Classroom is the ultimate solution to this question. Google classroom is essentially a virtual classroom of sorts. That means we can use it for seamlessly sending announcements, creating classes, starting discussions, submitting and grading assignments, asking for remarks and answers, sharing resources, and so on.

It’s also easy to set up a google classroom. Teachers share code with the class. And the students can join by just entering the codes. That’s all it takes to create a virtual classroom.

Features of Google Classroom

  • Enhanced communication
  • Improved organization
  • Faster grading process

2. Khan Academy


Khan Academy invariably secures a top spot on the list of the best free educational apps for students. The app’s mission is to provide a free and world-class education for all curious minds across the globe. And we have to admit that they are delivering it pretty impressively.

Khan Academy has a unique way to drive knowledge into your brains. All lessons are in forms of video tutorials. Videos display a recording of drawings on a virtual blackboard (like a teacher giving a lecture). And the narrator describes each lesson through these drawings. Pretty simple, right?

Khan Academy also provides online courses for preparing for standardized tests like SAT, MCAT, LSAT, and so on.

Features of Khan Academy

  • Learning in multiple languages
  • Progress tracking
  • Practise exercises

3. Duolingo


It takes immense patience and practice to learn new languages. It’s not everybody’s cup of tea. If the learning techniques aren’t adaptive, we’ll quickly lose focus and interest.

But Duolingo has made language learning a cakewalk. It helps us learn many languages like English, French, Spanish, Mandarin, Latin, etc. in a fun and interactive way. It starts with basic picture labeling games. As you complete more levels, There will be many different kinds of engaging games that will improve your vocabulary and grammar skills.

You can also set your daily goals. The app also tracks your performance to provide insights. If you do well, you’ll receive XPs. The more XPs you get, the more sets of interactive stories will be unlocked to improve your reading and listening comprehension.

Features of Duolingo

  • 30+ languages
  • Interactive stories 
  • Forum discussion
  • Leaderboards competitions
  • Language learning events

4. Remind


Group learning is an efficient practice to fill in learning gaps in students. But, it’s not always practical to get multiple students to assemble under a single roof and study together.

Remind app is the ultimate answer to this problem. Remind facilitates us to stay connected with our school community. Besides students, this community includes teachers and parents as well.

Once you join this school community using a unique school or class code, you will receive regular updates on your classroom activities. We can also use Remind to message a whole class, share photos and handouts, submit assignments, and clear doubts with your friends, both individually and collaboratively.
