Recent applications that provide students with alternative studying techniques have become more popular, with some intriguing Townsend Harris students. The Classic asked Harrisities about their usage and opinions of these applications.

Freshman Ibrahim Harun uses the app Coursera because of its versatility as it offers over 5800 courses and provides resources necessary to review and study material. With courses from Duke, Stanford, and Google, this program is reliable, affordable, and available on both mobile and desktop devices. 

The app allows you to customize your learning experience as you select your level of knowledge, ranging from beginner to advanced. He said that you can select courses for a customizable duration of time, ranging from one to four weeks to three to six months. Available on Android and iOS, thousands of students are already using Coursera to study and have seen successful results.

Another app that Harrisites use is Revyze, an AI powered platform that allows students to take personalized quizzes and tests for AP classes, the SAT, and much more. Revyze’s unique features sets it apart from other academic apps, in which it has a similar structure to other social media platforms. Teachers and experienced students can upload short videos onto the platform to teach a multitude of topics all on a scrollable home page, similar to the format of popular social media pages used by students. While it has these similar components, this does not take away from the fact that it is an extremely useful tool for many students. 

Revyze is a worthwhile app for students to download as it aids students with their studies if they have trouble learning content from more traditional resources such as a textbook.

Freshman Afahad Chowdhury studies using Numerade, an application available on iOS and Android, that provides video solutions for STEM based problems. Thousands of renowned schools like Rice, Stanford, and Georgia Tech all use this platform. Afahad said that he prefers to use this app because of its accessibility. It has an AI tutor, different resources, bootcamps, study groups, quizzes, and practice exams. Bootcamps are courses led by tutors that can help students study materials for subjects such as physics, math, chemistry, and biology. With Numerade, users can scan textbooks for any further explanation of a specific topic or question. As it incorporates many advanced courses, this app is suitable for students of any grade. 

Technology is clearly a helpful tool for many students to succeed in the classroom. Versatile apps such as the ones exemplified above undoubtedly engage students in their work with the help of interactive features and helpful mechanisms. Even if traditional studying and learning methods seem to be more convenient and productive for some students, others may take these digital approaches to further their understanding.
