Why we love this

  1. Courses and study material related to all main Indian competitive exams such as UPSC, SSC CAT, JEE as well as professional skills such as management, programming languages
  2. Save courses and lessons to your ‘library’ and pick up from where you left with ease
  3. Access live courses, quizzes and clear doubts with a subscription

Why we love this

  1. Personalised study plans that cater to various ages from middle school students to GMAT and CAT aspirants
  2. Localised video lessons are used to explain even the most complex subjects easily with simpler examples
  3. Can be synced easily to the ‘Parent Connect’ app which helps parents keep track of children’s progress

Great video tutorials and an easy to use interface make Byju’s an ideal learning tool for aspirants.

Udemy: Online Courses

Why we love this

  1. Choose from over 45,000 courses with a range of subjects and instructors, paying for only the classes you want
  2. Find exactly what you want — say, freestyle rap or 3D animation — along with that soap-making class you didn’t know you needed
  3. Many affordable options thanks to frequent sales, with a 30-day money back guarantee for all courses

Anyone can teach on Udemy, which means you can find a range of courses on almost anything. It also means the homepage can feel overwhelming, and there’s no common standard for quality, which varies widely. However, free sample videos and numerous course reviews should point you in the right direction.

Coursera: Online Courses

Why we love this

  1. Take university courses from respected institutions, wherever you are
  2. Dig deep into a subject with “Specializations,” such as Wharton’s 6-course Business Foundations
  3. Get recognition for your work with course and Specialization certificates, or even earn an accredited online master’s degree

There’s a lot to explore on Coursera, and you can usually do so for free — by “auditing” a class or viewing lectures without enrolling. However, these options are a bit buried; much more prominent is the option to earn certificates through self-paced Specialization bundles with a range of monthly prices.

Khan Academy

Why we love this

  1. Students of all ages will find something to learn, with many courses by year (primary to secondary school)
  2. Interactive quizzes with thousands of questions, plus helpful videos and hints for when you get stuck
  3. A rich course library: in-depth maths and science content, plus offerings in humanities, economics, and more

Often used by educators, Khan’s classes are free, with no account required. However, you’ll need to sign in for “Missions,” a feature that saves your progress and guides your learning. The curriculum is designed around the US school system, but contains plenty of valuable content for UK students.

With these apps and websites enhance your knowledge and keep learning & growing.

Good Luck !
