This online tool is especially useful for visual learners. You will be able to create mind maps, breaking down broad subjects into smaller topics. Mind maps are a proven method for aiding both memory and understanding. The GoConqr site also offers a number of other useful features, such as flashcards, self-created quizzes, note-taking facilities and a study planner.


This popular application is useful for staying organised due to the fact that all of your information, notes and research will be gathered together in one place. The information can also be synced across a number of different devices, which aids accessibility. You will also be able to share content with other users and save relevant online sources of information.


This website is all about collaboration as it connects students via shared subject areas and learning goals. You will be able to access and share study guides, flashcards and many other useful tools and resources. The site also offers multiple study modes and a wide-ranging content library.

Marinara Timer also comes with a feature that allows you to customise your own personal timer with a number of fun sound effects. Research has shown that taking a short break whist studying increases overall focus and attention. Therefore, this site allows you to have set breaks without having to feel guilty for logging onto Facebook or other social media sites.
