Top 5 Apps for online education: Vedantu, Unacademy, Byjus and more
Covid-19 cases are again on a rise in the country. Due to the pandemic, online classrooms, work from home, making online payments, etc., have now become the new normal. All this has given a big boost to digitalisation in India. Now we have mobile applications for almost everything we require. There are several online learning and education apps, which are available for both Android and iOS devices in India and are helping students to cope with their studies amid the ongoing pandemic. Students now communicate with teachers over video-conferencing apps to study and keep up-to-date with their course remotely.
While some of these learning apps focus on general topics or are used as study aids, others are designed with specialised fields of study in mind. Additionally, education apps help you understand concepts in interactive ways such as animated videos, which make learning more fun and intuitive than the traditional method. Some apps also come with a live class feature to help clear doubts in real-time. If you are looking for the best online learning apps in India, here is a list that should help you.
