You might be too shy to admit that you need help to submit grammatically correct assignments, a part-time job, or productivity.
Here are 15 insanely useful websites for college students that can help you through 3 years of college confusion, late-night assignments, and pocket money troubles.
Ps. I wish I knew this earlier.
I tried to find cashback and coupon deals to add to my list of
super-useful websites sadly we don’t have that kind of luxury.
All the websites mentioned below are Tried and Tested.
Do recommend websites you loved in the chatbox below.
Productive websites for college students
Talk Typer – App and website
Everyone has procrastinated an assignment in college and stayed up all night to finish it – well the talk typer is to the rescue.
Just turn on the microphone and talk to see the magic happen.
It can type whatever you talk in 12 different languages and does not need to be downloaded.
- Email and download
I tested it out with my name and it typed out “Truth” instead of “Ruth”.Proving minor discrepancies.
Google docs is a tough competition to the talk typer so if talk typer doesn’t work for you google docs is the answer.
Grammarly – App
If you want to get your assignment right without a spelling mistake say Hi to Grammarly. Copy-paste the content or download the app for prompts. It is also a super useful tool for text messages.
- Corrects grammar and spelling mistakes
- Gives you an overall score
- Indicates the tone of your essay
The premium version fixes additional grammar issues and plagiarism, unlike the free version.
Plagiarism means to steal content. Every assignment is expected to be plagiarism free for the sake of grades. All you have to do is copy-paste your content to this website and it will show you the percentage of plagiarism that needs to be corrected.
- Points out plagiarised content.
- Helps you correct it by duplicating the content.
- You can copy-paste or upload the content.
The content sent to duplicate lacks grammar accuracy.
Fun and Productivity websites for students in India
Habitica– website, and app
This is a free productivity tracker website that helps you gamify any task for the day. Sign in and create your avatar after which you will be able to add tasks or habits you want to form.
- Enables To-do lists.
- Enables Group tasks.
- Helps to track habits.
It is counterproductive.
Last Pass-website, and app
The last pass stores all your passwords, bank account details, and prompts new passwords. It is great for someone who keeps forgetting passwords or hates entering bank account details.
- Provides security.
- Easy login and log out
- Stores all digital information from wi-fi passwords to street names.
The free version has few benefits, unlike the premium one.
Google has the option to save and manage passwords so the question is do you need an add-on?
Sleep Ti.me– Website
Unlike an alarm clock, this website doesn’t wake you up but calculates your sleep time. For example, if you have soccer practice at 6 am it will calculate the time of sleep you need to get up fresh.
- Free with no premiums
- Gives an accurate sleep time.
- Calculates the time
It doesn’t have an alarm clock and with the 6 to 7-hour sleep rule, anyone can mentally calculate their sleep time.
Educational websites for students in India
Almost everyone knows Coursera, udemy, and other free educational platforms. So here are two notable mentions and why they are worth it.
The only thing that sets EDX apart from other educational platforms is the accessibility to Harvard online classes. Udemy is great for short online courses while EDX is great for online college degrees.
- Good for distance education
- User friendly
- Affiliated to reputed universities
- Few courses are free
The free courses don’t give you certification.
Skillshare has famous online gurus and experienced instructors that teach interactive skills across the globe. Skillshare is better and expensive than udemy unless so I suggest you take a group course to cut down costs.
- Free trial
- Learn or create classes
- Access to live sessions
Free classes have limitations to workshops and discussions.
Research websites for college students
Z library– Website
Z library claims to be the largest digital library with 5,311,116 Books and 77,518,212 Articles perfect for college research or projects.
Literature students can save bucks on buying books for every assignment.
- 5 books per day limit.
- Free version
- No ads displayed
Can e-books compete with the feel and fragrance of an old book?
Many books– Websites
I found many books to be user friendly with a clean bifurcation of genres in romance, horror, mystery, etc. They claimed to be 100% free and accessible.
- Reader’s forum
- Additional sources like author interviews and books different languages are provided.
- Ps.Telgu was the only Indian language available.
Bombarding ADs while reading online is disturbing.
Any book is an alternative that comes in an app form.
Websites popular with college students
Fiverr is a great website to earn money by providing services like photography, counseling, resume writing, etc. Good work from home option for stay at home moms and college students.
Step one-Start by filling out your details.
Step two– Choose a service you want to provide.
Step three– Take the common American English test
And you are good to go.
- Sellers dashboard
- Sellers freedom to quote price
- Easy to set up
- No App downloads
- Provides work experience
It takes days to get a buyer with an added 20 percent cut over your earnings.
Redbubble is an e-commerce store that sells t-shirts designed by anyone above the age of 18. You can design a t-shirt online FOR FREE and you get paid a percentage every time someone buys it. The design could be a cool text or a relevant meme.
- Anyone can design
- The seller gets informed every time a product has been sold
- Easy to use
- Seller doesn’t need to deliver products
Too many sellers on Redbubble results in market penetration.
