One of the secrets of Keystone’s online tutoring success is that it relies on the age-old relationship between a teacher and pupil. Facing their pupils head on, Keystone’s teachers use our online platform to convey their knowledge and instructions directly. By placing all our trust in the quality of our teachers, we feel that the geographical distance between the teacher and pupil is more than compensated for by the chance of a genuine intellectual relationship.
Nonetheless, there are a few advantages of learning online that in some ways put students in stronger positions than learning in the classroom. Below we list a few tools to enhance the online learning experience for Keystone students:
- Audacity. Record your own podcasts.
- Dipity. Create your own timelines with both words and images.
- Freedom. Increase your productivity by blocking off other features such as the internet when you’re trying to write an essay.
- Kindle. The highlights feature allows you to review notes, or bookmarks, very easily.
- Memrise. Increase the fun of learning a foreign language.
- Mindjet. Plan mind-maps with this software.
- Prezi. A bit of software that helps you make presentations.
- Quizlet. A flashcard tool.
- Screencast-o-matic. Records the activity on your screen for easy storing.
