Top 10 Applications That a Student Should Have

ITS Lion Cartoon This post will give you the best applications for students that are available on internet which will help them not only to boost their academic career but also their social network. For making the stuff look easy, I have divided the whole into 3 main categories.


  1. ONLINE DOCUMENTATION

    • Google Docs

      These are a part of Google’s SaaS (Software as a Service) version of MS Office. Documents, Spreadsheets, forms and presentations can be created within the application itself, imported through the web interface, or sent via email. They can also be saved to the user’s computer in a variety of formats (OpenOffice, HTML, PDF, RTF, Text, Word). By default, they are saved to the Google servers. But they have some limitations too:

      • The files can only be downloaded or uploaded once at a time
      • A user can have a total of 5,000 documents and presentations, 5,000 images, 1,000 spreadsheets, and 100 PDFs
      • Only presentations under 10MB can be imported
    • Zoho Notebook

      This applications is very useful for research purposes. This is similar to writing on a pad. This personal browser tool permits a user to write notes, and to clip text, images, and links from pages during browsing. These are saved to an online "notebook" with sharing and collaboration features. To increase its feasibility, ZOHO has facilitated the option to login using Google or Yahoo. As an added advantage add-on’s are available for firefox which can be downloaded here.

    • Google Reader

      Came into existence on 7 october 2005, this has revolutionized the internet session. With this feature, you can keep track of all of your favorite sites in a much organized way. Apart from just viewing your favorite sites, you can also share their articles with your friends. Also it can keep a record the feeds that you have read or not.

  2. PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING SITES

    • LinkedIn

      This is the first name that comes to mind when we talk of professional networking sites. The purpose of the site is to allow registered users to maintain a list of contact details of people they know and trust in business. The people in the list are called Connections. Users can invite anyone (whether a site user or not) to become a connection. The main feature of this site is that it allows you make your online resume in a PDF format

    • XING

      The site offers personal profiles, groups, discussion forums, event coordination, and other common social community features. Basic membership is free. But many core functions, like searching for people with specific qualifications or messaging people to whom one is not already connected, can only be accessed by the premium members. The unique feature of this site is the platform uses https and has a rigid privacy and no-spam policy. Unlike many other networking websites, XING provides its paying members very easy email access to any members.

    • Ryze

      Ryze.com is a free social networking website designed to link business professionals, particularly new entrepreneurs. The site claims to have over 500,000 members in 200 countries, with over 1,000 external organizations hosting sub-networks on the site. Both paid and unpaid membership levels are offered. Founded in late 2001 by Adrian Scott in San Francisco, it was the first of the new generation of social networking services, and was a heavy influence on Friendster, which was founded by early Ryze member Jonathan Abrams in 2002

    • Career Builder

      This is primarily a site used for finding jobs. This has a feature of getting connecting globally or within your country.

  3. SOCIAL CONNECTIVITY SITES

    • Facebook

      Today FaceBook is one of the fastest growing social networking site . Why?? because it is simple and fast as compared to others.Facebook is a free-access social networking website that is operated and privately owned by Facebook, Inc. Users can join networks organized by city, workplace, school, and region to connect and interact with other people. People can also add friends and send them messages, and update their personal profiles to notify friends about themselves. The website’s name refers to the paper facebooks depicting members of a campus community that some US colleges and preparatory schools give to incoming students, faculty, and staff as a way to get to know other people on campus.

    • Hi5

      In Hi5, users create an online profile in order to show information such as interests, age and hometown and upload user pictures where users can post comments. Hi5 also allows the user to create personal photo albums and set up a music player in the profile. Users can also send friend requests via e-mail to other users. When a person receives a friend request, he or she may accept or decline it, or block the user altogether. If the user accepts another user as a friend, the two will be connected directly or in the 1st degree. The user will then appear on the person’s friend list and vice-versa.

    • MySpace

      Throughout the course of 2007 and 2008, MySpace redesigned many of the features of its site in both layout and in function. One of the first functions to be redesigned was the user home page, with features such as status updates, applications, and subscriptions being added in order to compete with Facebook. In 2008, the MySpace homepage was redesigned. MySpace Music was recreated in fall of 2008 along with an updated version of the MySpace profile.

Study Smart (not hard)!

ARE U going to school or college?  there is no alternative to hard work…(well, there just might be one – it IS the age of the TECH-BOOM baby!).

So here is a piece of the Internet that actually helps you solve math problems. No its not a calculator and you don’t even need to know the formulae. All you need to solve a problem is the “Problem Statement”. Too good to be true? Lets have a look:

Head on over to Mathway . Enter your problem, select the subject and then just hit solve. Not only will you get the solution to the problem but also the steps that were taken to reach the solution. Cool ha? Take that Mr Maths Teacher!

Lets try and solve (tan(x) – sin(x)) / (sec2(x) – 1 ) .  Here is a example

The site also offers a number of solved examples ranging from calculating the area of the circle to calculating Eigen vectors, to evaluating integrals to Infinite series. You can click on a solved example and get a sample step by step solution for that type of problem with the option to get more detailed explanations of any step.

Mathway also offers the option of plotting graphs of functions ranging from polynomials to trigonometric functions to inequalities and a number of other ones.
