Student Digital Media Resource Guide

Written by:

Unlike past decades where all learning came from books, students today have plenty of other options. The Internet has allowed people to create many different types of resources, using multimedia and other technology, to help students learn and study better. In fact, you can find online resources for just about everything you do at school. Using these resources helps to save time, and more importantly, it gives you access to immense amounts of information and external support. One of the first things to consider is research databases and online library catalogs. These resources can help to pinpoint the exact research material you need for a paper or project. They can also help you to discover other information that you might not have thought of earlier. Homework is another major area where students often need help. As an alternative to staying back after class you might try submitting your questions to an online tutor. Many websites offer free live help via a chat, or discussion forums where students can submit a homework question. Here, you can also find articles and other information that can help with homework.

One of the most fun types of student resources online are interactive learning sites. These often come in the form of games, virtual simulations, and so on. By playing with these, students can gain a detailed grasp of a subject in a way that doesn't feel like classroom learning. Of course, everyone stresses out a bit when it comes to exam time. To start preparing early on, students can use test preparation websites or complete an online sample exam to see how well they fare. If you don't do very well, keep practicing until you get better scores on the practice tests. As students approach the last years of high school, they start to feel the pressure of applying to college. Fortunately there are many reliable resources (many provided by government agencies) on college applications, picking a college, finding financial aid, and much more. To get started, have a look at the resources outlined below.
