Okay, so you have a heap of assignments to complete and you have tried to use the library but that is full of other students who look like they are studying when in actual fact you know they are completing the last level on Candy Crush or have the sounds of One Direction bursting through students’ headphones.
You have also tried to use your local cafe and that is full of your lectures and you know they are about to mark your work and you do not want to be there when that happens.
Fear not students, for we no longer have to stress. Thanks to Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, they have saved us from finding the perfect place to study.
Pearson has created the Inspired Locations of Learning App, which aids students to find a more pleasant place to work. By using tips from students and data from Foursquare, the app finds the most inspiring places to study that are situated around our universities and cites.
David Rosenberg, business development manager at Foursquare, said: "Foursquare exists to help our users make the most of where they are, including finding inspirational places to study and learn. The Pearson app has neatly integrated our technology to make this a simple and easy to use process on any device."
We all know how hard it is to find a nice place to study so not only does the app highlight that, it also tells you where there is Wi-Fi and where the best place for a delicious beverage is whilst you are studying.
Pearson has listed over 200 such spots at universities in the US, UK, India and Indonesia, and is now looking for students to add their own global favourites.
Not just any study app
With my to do lists brimming with well things to do I have found this app that is available on IOS, Android and Online via the website really useful to me. As I live in a rural area I was worried that there would be no where to study and I would be stuck with the sounds of Candy Crush, One Direction and teachers violently highlighting errors in my essays.
However Inspired Locations of Learning has given me a variety of places to study with detailed descriptors of what it provides and what it can do for your studying. And it highlights places that you would not even think of studying, it reveals some hidden gems in your area.
The app feature is also handy as there were a few places that I was not aware of and had no idea where they were, so having the app meant that I wasn’t spending most of my time on Google maps trying to find the place to study.
If that does not entice you enough, the first 1000 students who use the app with have textbook donated in their name to a library in Africa through Book Aid International. And students who use the app in the first month of release will have the chance to win a year’s worth of university books, worth over £1000.
So whether you are stuck in your house or studying at university and you just can’t concentrate, Inspired Locations of Learning app gives you the ability to do just that—to find an inspired location to learn in.
