Four cool platforms and best education apps
Best Education Apps
Education is hard, isn’t it? It’s just so. much. effort. However, it is necessary to secure us – and our children – jobs in the future. Plus, it’s never too late to improve ourselves, is it? Anyway, here are four cool – no, really, cool – platforms that will help us and others to learn more and boost that all important brain power.
TeachMeNow is a bitcoin ready platform that launched in May 2015. Founded by CEO Thea Myhrvold, TeachMeNow boasts an extended network of more than 3000 expert tutors from all over the world, covering a huge range of subjects. Students simply search from a list of specialists in each field and choose one who matches their needs. When matched, students and tutors work together to find a time that works for both. The platform offers bitcoin support, which means that payments are as seamless, flexible, and cost-effective as possible.
Arabic; Alif Baa
Alif Baa is an app that supports those who wish to learn Arabic – including the alphabet – from scratch. The app turns learning Arabic into a game, using things like flashcards, score sharing and other interactive activities to help people learn the Arabic alphabet as easily as possible, which sounds pretty hard without assistance. The app is primarily aimed at children but we think that, in reality, anyone could make use of such a platform to kickstart their learning of a new language. Other great language apps of course include DuoLingo, Babbel, and others.
Lenny helps millennials and other financial miscreants to get educated on their finances. The platform provides credit lines to millennials, all while helping them build healthy credit scores through instruction and education. Exclusively a mobile-first lender, Lenny uses a credit decisioning algorithm to determine an individual’s credit score. Once a credit line has been approved, users can cash out to their bank account or instantly pay their friends using the peer-to-peer payment function. When repayments are made on time, users’ credit limits can increase by up to $1000 a quarter.
Lectus, the app that allows school pupils and international students to learn anywhere, anytime, has announced the launch of its iOS app. Founded by Oxford University graduate Shameer Thobhani, who has educated over 5,000 students with previous organisation InvestIN Education, Lectus facilitates learning by connecting students to expert tutors at any time, day or night. A UK market first – and the first app that provides an instant direct connection between school pupils and top university student tutors – sessions start at 40p per minute, with the first minute free to discuss the problem. Students stay for as long as they want and are only charged for the time they use.
