Online classrooms have become the new normal for students and teachers during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Students now communicate with teachers over video-conferencing apps to study and keep up-to-date with their courses remotely. To aid students during this time, there are several online learning and education apps, which are available for both Android and iOS devices in India. While some of these learning apps focus on general topics or are used as study aids, others are designed with specialised fields of study in mind. Additionally, education apps in India help you understand concepts in interactive ways such as animated videos, which make learning more fun and intuitive than the traditional method. Some apps also come with a live class feature to help clear doubts in real-time. If you’re looking for the best online learning apps in India, here’s a list that should help you.
