Useful Websites for Students

Internet is a treasure trove of information
Internet is a treasure trove of information

Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web and thanks to him, researching for information became faster and easier.

Like most inventions, internet is continuously being developed to improve a lot of things. Things that was impossible to do during the past can now be done online.

If you will notice, most of our "transactions" are done online. These transactions includes, email forwarding, bank transfers, chatting with friends or even clients, communicating or spreading news via social media and etc. These are the things that became a huge part of our daily lives.

Students nowadays rely mostly on the internet. They are in fact fortunate to have a quick source of information that they can use in order for them to complete their homework. Aside from that there are also some tools that can assist them with their studies. Some of them are basic programs in which they can type their reports, homework, and etc.

Other important materials found are online conversion sites which they can consult at for math-related studies. There are also online dictionaries and thesaurus they can instantly refer to by just going online.

So if you're a student (or even a professional) here are some useful websites you should bookmark on your computer:

Google Docs

A free site created by Google found on its Google Drive service that allows users to edit or make documents online which can also be shared to other users. These are ideal for group projects. It includes creation of spreadsheets or text file similar to Microsoft Office.

Project Gutenberg

It is the first online site that offers a wide range of free ebooks. They also offer ebooks that are readily formatted for kindle and epub. You have the option of reading them online or download them. Best part here is that their ebooks are proofread. This is perfect in expanding a student's imagination.


Forget "post it" or notepads. Evernote is mainly used for notetaking and organizing files for you to easily locate it once needed. It supports different system platforms including iOS, Microsoft Windows, Android and etc. It can be accessed with or without internet connection.


Dropbox is like your treasure chest. These is where you can save your files (thesis, essays, homework, photos, etc) to save space from your computer. Having a dropbox will avoid you from panicking whenever you accidentally deleted a file from your computer. You need to sign up for an account (for free unless you want to upgrade to their paid subscriptions) and access your dropbox on any computer or phone by logging in. If you need to pass a file to someone, you don't have to physically deliver it to them or email it. You just need to send a link of your dropbox where you stored the file to the person you want the file to be sent to. Easy-peasy.


This site can be used during your spare time. Not only will you combat boredome, but it will also sharpen your brain. It contains mind games that will enhance your logic and math skills.

Funbrain - Spell Check

Like Minddabble, this site will also sharpen your mind, this time focusing on your spelling abilities. You have the option of selecting the level of difficulty.

Grammar Quizzes

Practice your grammar and writing skills with the help of this website. It will keep helpyou avoid committing common grammar errors in the future. It involves grammar and writing exercises as well for you to get used to the proper usages of words and constructing correct sentences.

All podcasts offered on this site are for free! This is ideal for those who want to learn the English language. There's a step by step process that you have the option to follow so your english will be polished perfectly.

Dynamic Periodic Table

For those taking up Chemistry class, this is a good site that you can use as your reference for studying the elements and grouping them together.


Like a ninja, it's faster and easier to find meaning in this online dicitionary. Just type up the word and voila! You get the meaning for the word you're looking for.

These are just some of the websites that everyone should be aware of. There are also the obvious sites that everyone already knows like Wikipedia, and Google search engines etc. As long as you know how to use the internet correctly and you are good at maneuvering the sites you're visiting, looking for facts and information is just as easy as pie.
