The current situation has put society on guard against COVID-19 infections. Apple had to close its stores and given the circumstances various areas of daily life have had to find ways to carry out their activities remotely , even academia has had to adapt.

Apps for studying from home

Apple has noticed this situation and has decided to give space to academic applications that can help to teach and study at a distance in its “Discover” section.

These recommendations are divided into three categories and have been designed to support institutions and educators, allowing contact and distance learning.


In this category you will find various applications of languages, mathematics and even courses . In this category, applications such as:

Duolingo is the language learning application of choice for many. iOS users will easily recognize it as it has been mentioned many times by Apple and in many cases we have downloaded it before.

Coursera is a platform where courses of all kinds of topics are hosted and taught by specialists and icons of the different socio-cultural branches. h

Kahoot! allows educators to create some questionnaires simply and quickly. It is certainly a good alternative to apply small tests to keep the students’ minds active.

Dreambox Learning Math is an incredible application for the youngest in the house, as they will learn mathematical operations applied to various challenges in an interactive way.

Creativity and Productivity

In this category are all those applications intended to awaken skills in the student , for example:

Explain Everything Whiteboard brings the notebook to the palm of your hand. From the iPhone the student will be able to make annotations, place images, graphics and even draw.

Waypoint EDU makes use of augmented reality to offer knowledge of locations, architectures and more historical details, allowing learning to be not only interactive, but also more real.

Minecraft: Education Edition is a way for teachers to bring the classroom directly to their students’ devices. The application is clear in mentioning that it is only available to users with an Office 365 Education account, so it is indispensable that the institution or teacher make these lessons of all subjects available to their students in order to be used.


It is important that by being in your own home and in different parts you can be connected. This category allows you to get applications that help you work as a team and that have a shared digital space .

ZOOM Cloud Meetings is one of the platforms that more academic institutions have chosen to manage in this season of social isolation. Because it allows educators to give their classes remotely and also make them available in the cloud so that students can access them at other times.

Scribble Together Whiteboard is a great application that offers a kind of digital whiteboard that can be accessible to an entire workgroup. You can work as a PDF and also access it in a web app.

Remind: School Communication allows the messaging of a school group without interruption. It is designed in a simple way so that the student can get acquainted in an easy way and so that the work and communication of teacher and students is effective.

Workflow and cloud storage

Like its title, this category offers the essential applications to be able to save documents in the cloud . We find applications like:

Google Drive the Google cloud storage service. It offers users free space and access to their disk from any device.

Schoolwork the Apple application that helps teachers with the complicated task of having to share educational material. With the iPad, student activities are collaborative and online.

System for learning

Finally, this category offers two applications:

Canvas Student that literally allows you to work with an academic group in all its facets: teaching, learning, evaluating and giving feedback. A great alternative to manage a classroom in a digital way.

Schoology is very similar to the previous app. However, the organization and management of the groups can be more profound. From scheduling activities, receiving assignments and evaluation in real time allows the teacher to have more control in a group and individual way.
