However, things started to change with the meteoric rise of the internet. The internet soon began to be flooded with content of all possible topics and subjects, and everyone was able to access it.

Today learning apps offer numerous benefits that are otherwise unreachable through a traditional

education environment. Digitization has taken over our modern lives, and more and more people are shifting towards a mobile friendly learning experience from the conventional education system.

Now, the internet is filled with thousands of educational apps that not only act as auxiliary to the schools and colleges but also have innumerable certified courses on offer.
