Best android learning apps to increase your knowledge

The continuous development of the mobile internet and technology has made learning more accessible than ever. This can be especially seen in developing countries where high-quality learning was mostly restricted to tier 1 cities. Benefitting from this advancement in technology, many learning apps are available these days, which are mostly free to use and equipped with basic features. Some apps cover general topics which you can use to improve your general knowledge while some focus on specialized skills.

Here are some of the top learning apps that you can consider for enhancing your skills:

  • Coursera

Most courses on the online education app are free to audit i.e, free to access study material. You need to pay only if you want to receive a certificate. It is a very well-known MOOC platform. The courses are a mix of recorded lectures, reading assignments, and projects. Finishing a course will even earn you a certificate of completion if you opt for the paid version. Coursera is also one of the top MOOCs to have partnerships with multiple IVY league universities and have experienced online educators, thus offering excellent quality courses practically free of cost.

  • YouTube

Youtube videos can be a great way to learn many things; you can acquire general knowledge, specialized knowledge on science and math, complex procedures, and even listen to recorded lectures of many national and international institutes. Nowadays, many emerging online educators have started their own YouTube channels so more learners can easily watch educational video lessons from the comfort of their homes. The only caveat is you will be shown ads in the middle of content. Alternatively, YouTube Premium is an option that costs as little as Rs. 129 per month. This feature removes ads, and you can play videos even in the background on your phone.
